Mercedes-Benz is working on a new small van, called the T-Class.
Mercedes-Benz has announced it will be building a new entrant for the small van segment. Called the Mercedes-Benz T-Class, the newcomer will be developed in cooperation with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
"With the new Mercedes-Benz T-Class, we will offer a vehicle which makes it possible for families and those with active pastimes to step into the Mercedes-Benz world. These customers seek attractive and practical compact vehicles – and it is precisely these demands which the new T-Class fulfils", says Marcus Breitschwerdt, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans.
The teaser image attached to this release shows a typical van shape and it's expected the newcomer will feature wide-opening sliding doors. There will be both internal combustion engines on offer as well as a fully-electric version.
As for an arrival date, Mercedes-Benz has said customers will be taking delivery from the first half of 2022.
