Mercedes-Benz announces the arrival of an electric micro-camper, to be unveiled on December 2
With a small electric van as a base, the Mercedes-Benz EQT Marco Polo is born , an all-electric micro-camper concept that will be unveiled on 2 December. Although it is a concept, the brand has described the vehicle as “almost series production”, so do not expect many changes for production, which is also confirmed by this statement.
In fact, Mercedes-Benz has said that it expects the production car to be officially launched in the second half of 2023. The announcement also marks the debut of the Marco Polo module, designed as a flexible module including a bed and kitchen unit, which can be quickly assembled and disassembled. The company comments:
“The premium small van combines the variability and high-quality equipment level of the T-Class with the advantages of all-electric propulsion for families and active recreationalists alike.
It combines compact exterior dimensions with ample space. Thanks to the protected underbody mounting of the battery with a favourably low centre of gravity, it offers almost the same variability and practicality in the interior as the conventionally powered T-Class.
In addition, the privately positioned all-electric small van, based on the T-Class, offers, for example, a low load threshold, practical sliding doors and the typical Mercedes standards of comfort, connectivity, value and safety.”
As we mentioned at the start, we’ll have to wait to find out all the details of the concept next December, with even longer to wait for the production version. But, for the moment, if there is one thing we can be sure of, it is that a compact-sized camper model will leave the brand’s factory, which is great news for lovers of this type of vehicle.
Let’s remember that Mercedes-Benz presented last January, on the occasion of CES 2022, the camper version of its electric van Mercedes-Benz EQV, also fully electric and larger than this future Mercedes-Benz EQT Marco Polo that we have been discussing.
