Mercedes-Benz celebrates the impressive sales start for the new V-Class with more than 20 000 models delivered worldwide since May 2014.
As a result, the new V-Class has become a truly successful model among MPVs within just a very short period of time. In the first year since its market launch the V-Class has sold 25 percent more vehicles than the preceding model, the Viano, achieved in its first year of sales following its sales start in September 2003.
According to Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans: “We are proud of the V-Class. In the past year we have redefined the MPV segment with this vehicle; a fact which is also confirmed by our current sales figures. Meanwhile all of the variants have become available on the market for our customers to choose from, creating the best possible conditions to be continuously successful with the V-Class around the world.”
The V-Class is the most spacious member of the Mercedes-Benz passenger car family. It provides room for up to eight people and can be individualised to suit a variety of tastes and requirements thanks to wide-ranging seating and loading configurations. As such it is not just a car for families but also the ideal vehicle for sporty adventurers and luxurious VIP or hotel shuttle operators. The V-Class combines exemplary functionality with the high-class appeal, comfort, efficient driving pleasure and safety which characterise all Mercedes vehicles.
Mercedes’ MPV is available in two wheelbases and three vehicle lengths ranging from 4895 mm to 5370 mm. The cutting-edge 2.1-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with two-stage turbocharging comes in three output variants rated at 100, 120 or 140 kW. The top-of-the-range V 250 d boasts a powerful maximum torque of 440 Nm but consumes just six litres per 100 km. All three engine variants can also be ordered with the permanent all-wheel drive system 4MATIC.
