eCitan to be the fourth all-electric model from Mercedes-Benz Vans.

Mercedes-Benz has announced that the next-generation Citan small van will be developed again in cooperation with Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and there will be an all-electric version.

"Mercedes-Benz Vans has been offering the Citan since 2012. The small van with compact dimensions and a large load compartment is ideal for the wide range of challenges encountered in the city. Especially in the growing on-demand transit business the small van will be an even more interesting option for commercial customers. The main foundations for its success were laid by the combination of high functionality, versatility and economy, its comprehensive safety systems and high ride comfort."

With the EV version, Mercedes-Benz Vans offer will include four models:

Marcus Breitschwerdt, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans said:

"The new Citan will undergo a comprehensive new development and clearly be recognisable as a Mercedes-Benz at first glance. We will provide for a distinctive brand-adequate identity in the successor of our small van".
