Record attendance at Mercedes-Benz Van Experience

The Mercedes-Benz Van Experience, which is now in its 10th year, enjoyed a record attendance with more than 1,800 customers turning out over two consecutive weeks in June.

Attendees at Prodrive’s circuit in Warwickshire were able to test and sample a wide selection of Mercedes-Benz vans, including the Citan, Vito and Sprinter.

Activities included the Sprinter 4X4 challenge, skid pan and mpg challenge, with the Citan achieved 99mpg on a number of occasions on the two-mile mpg marathon circuit.

Mark Lovett, head of commercial vehicles at LeasePlan UK, said: "This is the fifth time that I've visited Van Experience and I find it incredibly useful and informative. The LeasePlan UK commercial vehicle team works very closely with Mercedes-Benz Vans and we were delighted this year, to have our own dedicated day.

"Being able to test a wide range of differing models, all within the closed confines of this fantastic venue, enables us to greater understand the vehicles and ultimately build a clearer picture of what we and our van clients are looking for.

"LeasePlan colleagues, suppliers, clients and prospects had a great day in Warwickshire putting all the Mercedes-Benz vans through their paces.

"As a direct result, we are promoting the Mercedes Benz range of vans to more of our clients who previously may not have considered the brand."
