Mercedes-Benz unveils camper version of the EQV for an electric ‘van life’ experience

by Fred Lambert

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a new camper version of its EQV electric van to create an all-electric “van life” experience.

Van life or vandwelling is the concept of living out of a van that has been modified with several amenities in order to live some sort of bohemian traveling life.

It’s a concept that is gaining traction, especially after being romanticized by younger generations on social media.

Modified versions of Mercedes-Benz’s vans, especially its Sprinter van, have been popular options for people seeking the “van life.”

Now the German automaker wants to electrify the market.

Klaus Rehkugler, head of sales and marketing at Mercedes‑Benz Vans, announced today:

The motorhome market is of strategic importance for Mercedes‑Benz Vans. We want to continue to grow here and play a pioneering role in terms of innovation and sustainability. 

For us it is clear: The future is electric, also in the motorhome industry!
