No model, no SUV, no waste of space ... just a simple urban electric vehicle. At first glance, the new American looks like the little retro speedster from the 50s, a Heinkel cabin scooter on four wheels. At second glance, the reduction to a covered mobility solution turns out to be a clever move. With an electric range of up to 70 km and a top speed of 45 km / h, it is the urban deceleration. Any 16-year-old with an AM driver's license can drive the vehicle.
One of the most popular delivery vans in Germany has an electric counterpart by its side - the eSprinter. Mercedes-Benz's commercial customers will in future be able to choose between the conventional combustion engine and the emission-free electric motor for the Sprinter. With the first generation of the eSprinter, the investment costs for the operational infrastructure are a decisive cost factor in addition to the purchase price. An app, which will be available in spring 2020, is intended to bring more transparency to investment decisions.
