Mercedes T-Class electric MPV announced for 2022

Brabus Mercedes Benz GLB

Mercedes-Benz engineers won't have forgotten that through six generations and 48 years, the firm's range-topping S-class has many times won the accolade "the best vehicle in the world".

The image reveals a relatively high window line, similar to that of a Honda Odyssey and an equally high roofline with a tall glasshouse hinting at the T-Class' touring capabilities as a mini-bus. "These customers seek attractive and practical compact vehicles - and it is precisely these demands which the new T-Class fulfils".

The new Mercedes-Benz T-Class: compact city van for families, active leisure enthusiasts and work Stuttgart.

According to Daimler Group chief design officer Gorden Wagener, the T-Class's new layout and design achieves "a fusion of functionality and desirability" in accordance with the brand's design philosophy of "Sensual Purity".

The first-generation Citan was often criticised for being just a rebadged Renault model and Mercedes wants to make sure its successor is "clearly discernible at first glance as a member of the Mercedes-Benz family". Especially in terms of design, value, safety and connectivity, the new vehicle will bear the DNA of Mercedes-Benz. Two sliding doors, one at each side, will allow "easy and comfortable access to the interior". And although the powertrain details aren't available at the moment, the carmaker claims that alongside conventional drive systems, there will be a fully electric version too. In August past year, the Vans division announced a successor to the compact urban delivery van, together with a fully-electric variant.

Currently, the Citan is the German manufacturer's entry in the small van segment, though this has been aimed at commercial users, whereas the upcoming T-Class will be for private owners, albeit also with transport sharing services in mind.

Like the outgoing model, the T-Class and new Citan will be produced in co-operation with the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance, so it's likely to share the mechanical platform and engine technology of the next-generation Renault Kangoo.
