2022 Mercedes T-class MPV teased
In 2022 Mercedes-Benz will be debuting an all-new MPV, built-in collaboration with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. Badged the 2022 Mercedes T-class, the latest MPV in the company’s line-up would be placed below the V-class.
The 2022 Mercedes T-class is effectively the spiritual descendant of the firm’s short-lived Vaneo MPV manufactured from 2002 to 2005. The revolutionary computer was built for “families and others with active pastimes,” said Marcus Breitschwerdt, president of the Vans division of the group.
The future Mercedes T-class, expected to go on sale in the first half of 2022, will be built alongside the second-generation commercial Citan truck. The latest Citan, introduced in 2012, is heavily based on the Renault Kangoo and the 2022 Mercedes T-class would essentially substitute the passenger derived Citan Tourer.
Although it is to be built with the assistance of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, Mercedes said the T-Class would offer “unmistakably typical technology” of the company’s models. It will be built with sliding doors on both sides for a variety of applications, including passenger travel as part of the “sharing facilities.” Furthermore, the teaser offers a clue regarding the design of the 2022 Mercedes T-class.
Mercedes-Benz has yet to outline individual powertrains, but he confirmed that alongside those powered by combustion, a completely electric variant will be available. The new Kangoo EV edition includes an electric 60hp engine providing a range of about 160 km.
The new Citan is manufactured at a French utility vehicle plant in Renault. Although unconfirmed, this agreement is expected to proceed with the T-class and next-generation Citan as they reach service globally in 2022.
It is also really early to know whether it will bring this all-new approach to India. But with Mercedes selling a large variety of models like the V-class in India, there could be a possibility that the upcoming T-class might also be introduced here.
With the relaxation of lockout constraints in India, the carmaker has introduced the latest GLS, the AMG C 63 Coupe, and the revised AMG GT R, as well as more modern GLE models. The carmaker is now planning to introduce in the coming months the all-new A-class limousine and the all-electric EQC in India. The carmaker has also announced that they are aiming to launch further AMG versions before the year-end.
