Our range: urban delivery vehicle, van, MPV.
To do a perfect job you need a reliable partner. And it is just such reliable partners that Mercedes-Benz Vans has in its portfolio in any size: Whether the Citan urban delivery van, the mid-size Vito van or the large Sprinter van – commercial vehicles from Mercedes-Benz Vans stand for great reliability, high quality and high value retention. In line with the brand claim "Born to run".
Even those seeking the perfect partner for their own small "family affair" are well served by Mercedes-Benz Vans: the V-Class has revolutionized the MPV segment, and scores with first-class comfort and high perceived value. Together with the Sprinter chassis cab with a standard and low frame, the Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY camper vans round off the product range.
Our aim: Safe and innovative vans
Our customers benefit from the innovative strength and leadership of Mercedes-Benz Vans: modern safety systems now allow accidents to be prevented, or their consequences to be mitigated. Brake Assist, ABS, ESP or Crosswind Assist – with respect to many innovations in the safety sector, Mercedes-Benz Vans were the first to be equipped with modern safety features.
But it is not only here that we are ahead of our competitors: Thanks to future-oriented BlueEFFICIENCY technologies, our vans also lead the field in their segments with respect to cost-effectiveness. The comprehensively well-conceived vehicle concepts with typical Mercedes-Benz design expertise ease the daily workload of our customers with a high level of practicality. In short: Mercedes-Benz Vans has a suitable vehicle for any job.
Our model range: availability throughout the world
With our global growth strategy "Mercedes-Benz Vans goes global" we will respond to the needs of our worldwide customers even more readily and systematically in future: Mercedes-Benz Vans already has a truly global vehicle in its portfolio with the Sprinter – our large van is marketed in more than 130 countries, and on every continent it demonstrates that it is a van of the world. It is produced and marketed in Russia as the Sprinter Classic. We are systematically following this strategy with the market launch of the Vito in Latin America and North America – where it is called the Metris. Our aim is to consolidate the technological leadership of Mercedes-Benz Vans even further, expand existing activities and open up new growth potentials beyond the European core markets.
