Mercedes-Benz is to launch a new urban delivery van later this year named the Citan ("city" and "titan") - the little brother to the Sprinter and Vito. The Citan will be first seen at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover in September. The new van will be available with petrol, diesel and electric drivetrains, and with panelvan, crewbus and mixed use bodies, and in a variety of lengths and weights. My bet is that there's an ideal base for a small campervan there too.

Mercedes strategy behind the large number of variants is to make the new urban delivery van suited for a broad range of commercial applications. Everything about the Citan is standard Mercedes Benz quality, and all variants of which come with ESP as standard.
