Mercedes-Benz Vans says a total of 2,700 battery-powered vans were delivered in the first quarter (+133%).
The proportion of purely electrically powered Sprinters and Vito was more than doubled in Europe. In the privately positioned midsize van segment, EQV deliveries increased by 103% in the first three months of the year.
Despite ongoing fluctuations and disruptions in the semiconductor supply sector, sales in Q1 2022 were at the same level as last year with 89,900 units sold worldwide. In commercial vans, deliveries fell by 1% to around 75,900 Sprinter, Vito, Vito Tourer and Citan.
In the ‘private segment’ V-Class and EQV managed sales of around 14,000, an increase of 5%. The continuing boom in motorhomes continues to have a positive effect on demand for the Marco Polo and all its derivatives, Mercedes said.
