Mercedes launches all-new Euro 6 Vito Taxi

Mercedes Vito Taxi

Mercedes-Benz Vans has launched its all-new Vito Taxi with prices started from £135 per week.

Vito Taxi offers space for the driver and up to six passengers, as well as being fully-wheelchair accessible.

Available initially in a ‘National’ specification, customers can choose from the front wheel-drive 109CDI model, with 88 bhp or the rear-wheel drive 114CDI with 114 bhp. Both come with manual gearboxes but an optional seven-speed automatic gearbox is available for the 114CDI models.

Later in 2016, a London specification version will be available, incorporating the rear steering axle that allows it to meet the famous 25ft turning circle rule as prescribed by the Public Carriage Office so it can execute a U-turn in London’s congested streets.

The London variant is offered with the more powerful engine as standard together with the 7G-Tronic seven-speed automatic gearbox, which is now controlled using a steering column-mounted lever.

Standard equipment on both versions includes the fuel-saving BlueEfficiency measures which features engine Start/Stop function for the 114CDI models, air conditioning, electric folding mirrors, electrically operated sliding doors on both sides and electrical nearside step; London versions feature an additional off-side step.

Priced from £135 per week for the Vito Taxi 109CDI National variant, the Vito Taxi comes with a three-year, unlimited mileage manufacturer’s warranty and MobiloVan back-up, which includes free, round-the-clock emergency roadside assistance. Pricing for the London variant is still to be announced.

    great idea for mercedes to launch this van unfortunately these days all vehicles appear to come with privacy glass and some councils do not allow for safety reasons. very expensive to replace to conform with rules and regulations.

    It looks to be a fantastic proposition for Taxi operators and the costs seem reasonable too.
