Prices are expected to start at about £48,000, for which you will get the Advanced Plus trim level, including either a yellow or high-gloss black interior theme, chrome detailing, ambient lighting, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, height-adjustable front seats, a reversing camera and rear parking sensors.
Premium trim adds a number of driver assistance and safety systems, including semi-automatic parking and LED headlights with automatic high beam.
Premium Plus then brings sat-nav, keyless go and smart-looking 17in twin-spoke alloy wheels in place of the standard 16in ones.
Every EQT gets synthetic leather upholstery plus an upmarket suede-like material on the doors and dashboard, integrated into which is a 7.0in touchscreen running Mercedes’ MBUX infotainment system with voice recognition.
A heat pump for the air conditioning is also standard to improve heating efficiency and suitability for cold weather.
As the EQT is based on a van, it provides plenty of storage space, with the boot volume measuring 551 litres and increasing to 1979 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.
It’s an elegant interior with some high-quality materials that you would expect in a Mercedes, but it still feels like a van. The boxy interior is noisier than you would imagine an EV’s should be, with noticeable motor whine and more wind and road noise than in Mercedes’ conventional EQ cars.
