The first unit of the new Vito has rolled off the production line at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Vitoria, Spain.
The new Vito is the first mid-size van to feature three drive system variants: front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive. As a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, the new Vito also sets safety standards with its many innovative safety and assistance systems.
Almost 1.2 million Vitos were sold between the vehicle’s market launch in 1995 and the end of 2013. Around 3,500 employees manufacture the new Vito at the plant in Vitoria.
The Vitoria plant is the second-largest Daimler van production plant in the world. In addition, it indirectly generates about 13,000 jobs in the region.
