Mercedes decided to use another letter of the alphabet to name their models. This time it’s letter “T”: the T-class will be called small passenger “heel”.
Now the only compact MPV under the brand name Mercedes is called Citan. It is the closest relative of the French Renault Kangoo, which is not much different. In the near future the situation will change: the T-class will have much more differences from the “French”, although both cars will retain the total aggregate base.
The company does not hide that the future T-Class is built on the same platform with the Kangoo, but the size of it is bigger than him. In addition, Mercedes announced a rear sliding door, advanced security system, and in the future – a purely electric version.
With the new T-class we will offer a vehicle that will allow families and active people to join the world of Mercedes-Benz. These customers are looking for attractive and practical compact cars. All these requirements will fit the new T-class – promised Marcus Breitschwerdt, head of business unit Mercedes-Benz Vans.
While the brand from Stuttgart has just published the teaser hint. Which is not surprising: before the premiere of the serial car will be another year and a half. A little earlier there will be new Citan – that is a simplified version of the T-class commercial and family use.
