Key Figures of Mercedes-Benz Vans

Mercedes-Benz Vans is a global supplier of a complete range of vans and related services. The division’s products range from the Citan small van with a gross vehicle weight of 1.8 metric tons to the Sprinter large van with a gross vehicle weight of up to 5 metric tons. The portfolio in the commercial segment comprises the Sprinter large van, the Vito mid-size van (marketed as the “Metris” in the United States) and the Citan urban delivery van. In the segment for private customers, Mercedes-Benz Vans offers the V-Class full-size MPV and the Marco Polo travel vans and recreational vehicles. With the launch of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class in 2017, we now also have a model series in the segment for midsize pickups. The eVito, eSprinter and Concept Sprinter F-CELL demonstrate how systematically we are progressing with the development of alternative drive systems. In addition, our future-oriented adVANce initiative has allowed us to systematically move ahead with the transformation of Mercedes-Benz Vans from a vehicle manufacturer into a supplier of holistic transportation and mobility solutions for cargo and passengers.
