Mercedes-Benz introduced an electric van for the EQT family even though it is still in concept form, indicating the seriousness of this German brand to compete in the small van segment.
This near-production concept vehicle combines ample and versatile space for seven passengers and a large luggage compartment with a distinctive Mercedes-Benz design.
The EQT Concept underscores the unique combination of premium comfort and uncompromising functionality with electric ride enjoyment with the electric longboard perfectly integrated into the load compartment.
“The T-Class gives them an exciting introduction into the world of Mercedes-Benz. And as the EQT Concept demonstrates: We consistently apply our claim to being the leader in electromobility and will also offer fully electric models in this segment in the future,” said Marcus Breitschwerdt, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, in an official statement.
The EQT Concept was immediately recognized as a member of the Mercedes-EQ family. The design is distinguished by balanced proportions and sensual surface design.
The muscular shoulders and striking wheel-holes underline the vehicle’s strength and emotional appeal. The distinctive black front panel with LED headlamps flows smoothly from the hood and glistens with a star pattern.
Different sized stars with 3D effects are displayed all over the vehicle from the front and 21-inch alloy wheels with a high gloss finish to the panoramic roof and electric longboard at the rear.
There is also a light strip that connects the LED headlamps with the LED taillights. This combined with the vehicle paint in a sleek black color creates an interesting contrast, resulting in an aesthetic of high quality.
The EQT Concept has dimensions of 4,945 meters long, 1,863 meters wide, and 1,826 meters high.
The vehicle features sliding doors on both sides with very large openings so that the two full-sized individual seats in the third row can be reached without difficulty.
Three child seats can be installed side by side in the second-row seat. The panoramic roof with starscapes lasered into it floods the interior with light.
“The EQT concept provides a view of how space and maximum variability can also be combined with stylish comfort in the small van segment. Our future T-Class is truly multi-talented and with that, we will attract new customer groups and grow sustainably,” added Marcus Breitschwerdt.
