Mercedes will offer an electric version of the next generation Citan van. The model will be developed and produced in cooperation with Renault.
Mercedes has announced that a new electric model would soon see the day in its utility range. After the eVito, the eSprinter and the recent EQV, the German manufacturer will launch a zero emission Citan. Logically, this model could take the name of eCitan.
Mercedes adds that the vehicle will be developed and assembled in cooperation with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, as is the case for the current Citan, which has been produced since 2012 at the Renault Maubeuge plant in France.
Cousin from Renault Kangoo Z.E
The zero-emission version of the second-generation Mercedes Citan could be launched as early as 2020 in the wake of his cousin, the future Renault Kangoo Z.E. which was prefigured by a concept last spring.
