Chance of the calendar, as we introduce you to this newcomer to Mercedes’ EQ range, you will be able to discover (see p. 28) the first test of the Renault Kangoo E-Tech, its technical twin. Both are closely derived from their respective thermal versions, from which they take up the silhouette, the template (4.50 m) or the interior trim. There is even a… gas hatch, dummy here, the charging socket located at the front, under the logo. The EQT also incorporates the specific T-Class dashboard and its needle counters (they are digital on the Kangoo). In this electric version, comfort in the rear seats is degraded by the installation of the battery under the floor, which raises the legs. If the Mercedes differs from the Renault by its front optics, its grille, its dashboard and its seats, on the technical side, it uses the same electric unit of 90 kW (122 hp) as well as the same 45 kWh battery (announced autonomy of 282 km), but offered only in the version compatible with charging up to 22 kW in alternating current, and up to 80 kW in direct current (fast charging). Finally, the Mercedes (which will also be available in 7 seats) displays its premium ambition with a first price of €45,410, or €6,510 more than the Renault (for an equivalent version). The star is expensive!
