Mercedes-Benz eCitan pricing announced

The all-electric Mercedes-Benz eCitan is now available to order in the UK, with the first vehicles expected to arrive in October


The all-electric version of the compact Mercedes-Benz Citan – the eCitan – is now available to order in the UK, with the first vehicles expected to arrive in October.

The eCitan is available in panel and crew van variants with a choice of two lengths and two trim lines. All versions are powered by the same 122hp electric powertrain that reportedly offers a range of up to 176 miles on a single charge.

The compact van is also equipped with 22 kW AC charging as standard and can also use a 75kW DC charger which Mercedes says can charge the battery from 10% to 80% in 38 minutes. The brand is also offering retail and SME customers an extra £1,000 as part of the eCitan package to put towards charging installation at their home or place of work.

Delivery of the shorter L1 panel van variants are anticipated to take place next month, with orders for longer L2 versions following later this year and crew van models early next year. A tow bar is offered for an additional fee, which has up to 1,450kg braked capacity.
