Mercedes-Benz EQV 2023: Australian price and specs revealed for $155k electric people mover


The fully-electric Mercedes-Benz seven seater is available to purchase from today, but you’ll need some serious funds first

Mercedes-Benz is continuing its EQ wave of electrified vehicles with the new EQV luxury people mover, but it’s not for those on a tight budget. 

Priced from $155,338 before on-road costs, the EQV will seat seven people in one of the most luxurious offerings in the people mover space.

Mercedes-Benz says that the 90kWh battery pack has been positioned neatly under the floor, providing more space for occupants.

Electricity is fed to a single electric motor on the front axle that can produce maximum outputs of 150kW/365Nm. Driving range for the EQV is rated at 363km (WLTP).

While direct rivals in this niche segment are still thin on the ground, the EQV will face some competition from the recently launched LDV Mifa 9 ($106,000). 

What does the EQV include as standard?

The EQV is available in a single grade that rides on Mercedes-Benz’s airmatic air suspension as standard , similar to the EQS luxury sedan.

Also included are a set of captain’s chairs in the second row, dual electric sliding doors, heated and electric front seats and an MBUX infotainment system mated to a 10.25-inch central touchscreen. 

A Burmester sound system is also fitted, along with auto climate control, rear air conditioning, Apple CarPlay and Android auto functionality and a leather multifunction steering wheel.

Mercedes-Benz says that four leather rear chairs are available as an option – a setup that could prove popular with airport transfers and limousines but can also be found inside other high-end luxury models such as the Lexus LX large SUV.

Owners of the EQV will be able to configure their electric van to accommodate over 1000 litres of storage space if needed. 

How safe is the EQV?

The EQV is fitted with front, thorax and window airbags for the front seats and window bags from the A to D pillars for rear occupants.

The EQV is covered by a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty and eight years/160,000km for the battery.
