a new electric van platform

The German firm tells us more about the Mercedes VAN.EA platform, a new modular and scalable architecture dedicated to electric vans and vans.

The range of Mercedes vans and vans, whether utility vehicles or models for travelers and outdoor recreation enthusiasts, should change considerably by 2030.

Indeed, the German firm has announced the arrival in 2026 of a new modular platform dedicated to electric vehicles : Mercedes VAN.EA (Van Electric Architecture).

Mercedes VAN.EA: more than 500 km of autonomy

This new platform is broken down into Three parties : the front is identical to all the vehicles and includes the front axle and the electric motor, the central part is modular and can be extended to adapt to all vehicle sizes, while carrying the batteries, while the rear part will be available in two versions, with and without electric motorization, making it possible to offer all-wheel drive.

The first vehicles based on the VAN.EA platform will be medium-sized vans, which will have a autonomy of more than 500 km. They will understand the latest autonomous driving technologies level 2, while level 3 should be in service in 2030. This new platform will offer more latitude to offer a differentiating exterior style.

Utility vans will also offer the same functionalities as their van counterparts for the transport of people, and will offer many variations according to the needs of end customers: ambulances, refrigerated transport, or camper vans and converted vans, for example.

Mercedes VAN.EA: dedicated to electric vehicles

The Stuttgart firm has developed this new Mercedes VAN.EA platform from scratch, and has entirely dedicated it to electric vehicles. In particular, it will make it possible to make significant economies of scale, and will attract new customers with a variety of products such as passenger transport vans, utility vans, fitted vans or motorhomes.

In addition to future models based on the VAN.EA platform, the Mercedes Sprinter with combustion engine will continue its career. However, the last 100% electric eSprinter will quickly be replaced by a new generation 100% electric when this new platform is launched, in 2026. We will still have to wait a bit to discover the new products based on this new electric platform.
