Mercedes-Benz Citan heading to IAA Commercial Vehicle Show

Mercedes-Benz Citan

The German carmaker Mercedes-Benz has previewed the other day a brand new entry-level van named Citan which will make its official debut this September at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show. They’ve come up with the “Citan” designation by combining the words “city” and “titan”. Clever, right?

Anyway, when this will be launched in the production version it is going to be the fourth model in the company’s commercial vehicle family, joining the Vito (2.77 to 3.2 tons), Sprinter (3.0 to 5.0 tons) and the Vario (6.0 to 8.2 tons).

The Citan will be available as a crewbus, a panel van and also a mixed-use vehicle. Just as the rest of the models we’ve mentioned, the Citan will be sold in a wide variety of weights and lengths. We don’t have any details regarding the specifications of the vehicle but we do know that in the engine lineup it will feature low-emission gasoline and diesel engines, along with the company’s BlueEFFICIENCY package.

Mercedes-Benz is also planning an electric version of the Citan, but we don’t know if it will adapted from the Vito E-Cell or it will be an entirely new one designed specifically for the Citan. We will have more information about the vehicle in September.

The vehicle is expected to be launch shortly after its debut at the IAA Commercial Show in Hanover, Germany.
