First series production Vito rolls-off the line at Mercedes-Benz plant in Vitoria

The first unit of the new Vito rolled-off the production line at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Vitoria, Spain. The vehicle from Mercedes-Benz Vans sets new standards in the mid-size van segment. The new van with a permissible gross vehicle weight of 2.5-3.2-t
impresses with very low fuel consumption (as little as 5.7 l of diesel per 100 km) and a low purchase price (starting at €17,990 plus tax in Germany). The new Vito is also the first mid-size van to feature three drive system variants: front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive. As a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, the new Vito also sets safety standards with its many innovative safety and assistance systems.

"Our new Mercedes-Benz Vito is setting the bar higher for mid-size vans. The new Vito is the benchmark in its segment for safety, efficiency, and quality. We are now attacking in our traditional markets with new entry-level variants. Moreover, we are conquering new markets and also putting the new Vito on the road in the Americas. The Vito is our second global vehicle after the Sprinter, and the van is being launched here in Vitoria today," said Frank Klein, Head of Production, Mercedes-Benz Vans.
