Mercedes-Benz Announces New Small T-Class Van
It will be availabla also in a fully electric version.
Mercedes-Benz teased a new compact, passenger city van – T-Class – for families, active leisure enthusiasts and work, which will enter the market in the first half of 2022.
Just like the upcoming next-generation Citan (small commercial van), it will be developed in cooperation with Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, and available in a fully electric version.
“In the small van segment, Mercedes-Benz Vans has been represented by the commercially positioned Citan since 2012.

Based on this small van platform, two vehicles will be created: while the Mercedes-Benz Citan is a no-compromise vehicle tailored to the requirements of commercial customers, the Mercedes-Benz T-Class is primarily focused towards private customers.”
The new “T-Class” name will be used in the small van segment, just like the “V-Class” is in the midsize segment.
“The T-Class will meet the needs of families and leisure-oriented people at an attractive price-value ratio. The letter T stands for efficient room concepts and is thus perfectly suited as a model designation for compact family vans bearing the three-pointed star.
The new Mercedes-Benz T-Class offers a large amount of space and is suited to a range of different uses, including passenger transportation as a reference within sharing services – all while not compromising on comfort. The wide-opening sliding doors on both the left and right-hand sides of the vehicle as an example allow easy and comfortable access to the interior.”
