Mercedes EQT electric minivan

Another run at the soccer mom segment? I think they should have kept the R-Class in the lineup. The AMG R63 was a monster.

https://www.motorauthority.com/news/...d-with-concept


The strategy is similar to what Mercedes does with its Metris commercial van sold here, which has a passenger version known as a V-Class, and available in EQV electric guise.

The redesigned Citan commercial van will debut in 2021, in both regular guise and an electric version to be called the eCitan. The T-Class passenger van will debut in the first half of 2022 and spawn its own EQT electric version at a later date.

Mercedes described the Concept EQT as a “near-series-production” vehicle, suggesting that the production version will be styled closely to what you see here. It measures 194.6 inches in length, features sliding doors, and has seven seats split over three rows. Mercedes hasn't mentioned storage volume, though the automaker said the third-row seats can be folded or removed completely to maximize storage.

The T-Class, and the EQT it will spawn, will be aimed at young families and people with active lifestyles who don't want to upgrade to a large crossover or pickup truck to carry their gear. It will ride on a platform sourced from the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance, a platform that will also likely form the basis of the EQT.

This is about the size of a Transit Connect, so doubtful it would hit the sweet spot size wise in the U.S. for the minivan market.

Its not for the US market, this is definitely a vehicle aimed for the EU. I could see it being used for taxi's maybe.

And it is a vehicle that comes out of the partnership with Nissan and Renault, like the GLA. The styling of the EQT is not pureblood Mercedes. The styling cues make it obvious that compromises have been made to facilitate a shared platform.
