Mercedes-Benz Vito is based on strengths such as versatility, flexibility and a balanced price/performance ratio. Extensively updated, the new version is now even more attractive. Highlights include the locally emission-free eVito Tourer (combined power consumption: 26.2 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) with a high-torque electric machine and up to 421-kilometres range, as well as the new, efficient and powerful four-cylinder diesel generation of the OM 654 engine family. New products and features in infotainment and the assistance systems as well as enhancements in the design round off the facelift. The new Mercedes-Benz Vito can be ordered as of 01 April 2020.
The highlights of the 2020 facelift:
▪ eVito Tourer with 150 kW and 421-kilometre range,
▪ New OM 654 engine generation, incl. 176 kW top major assembly with passenger car registration
▪ AIRMATIC air suspension
▪ More safety thanks to DISTRONIC and Active Brake Assist
▪ Improved reversing camera
▪ Digital rear-view mirror
▪ New infotainment portfolio
▪ Enhanced vehicle interior and new seat covers
▪ Radiator grille in new look
The new Mercedes-Benz eVito Tourer takes on the autonomous look of its brothers with a combustion engine. But beneath the dynamic front with a charging connection in the bumper at the front left is the electric drivetrain (eATS), which powers the front wheels with a peak output of 150 kW. The electric motor, the transmission with fixed transmission ratios, the cooling system and the power electronics form a compact unit. The energy is stored in
a lithium-ion battery in the vehicle’s underbody. It is configured low down and centrally, which has a positive effect on the eVito Tourer handling. The top speeds of 140 km/h with standard and 160 km/h with special equipment ensure rapid progress both in and out of urban traffic.
The Mercedes-Benz eVito Tourer comes as standard with a water-cooled on-board charger with alternating current with an output of 11 kW. This means that it is also prepared for AC charging at home or public charging stations.
The new eVito Tourer can be charged via the CCS-charging connection in the bumper on the front left side. It enables DC charging. Therefore, the eVito Tourer, with a maximum output of up to 110 kW, can be charged from 10-80 % in
under 45 minutes at a rapid charging station. The battery with a usable capacity of 90 kWh facilitates a range of 421 kilometers.
as the new top engine in its class – for the Vito Tourer registered as a passenger car the Vito 124 CDI with 176 kW (239 hp) and 500 Nm torque (combined fuel consumption 6.4-6.3 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 168-166 g/km)5. In the acceleration phase, the Vito 124 CDI only available with passenger car registration can briefly deliver an additional 30 Nm of torque (“overtorque”) – in addition to its 500 Nm of torque. The Vito 124 CDI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds. It can reach a top speed of 210 km/h.
9G-TRONIC automatic transmission
For the first time the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is now available without restrictions for all Vito variants with rear wheel drive. The especially comfortable and efficient automatic transmission with torque converter replaces the
7G-TRONIC and was previously reserved for the Vito Tourer. Drivers can use the DYNAMIC SELECT switch to select the drive programs “Comfort” and “Sport” and thus tailor the shifting behaviour to their driving requirements. Alternatively, they can shift manually in “M” mode using DIRECT SELECT steering wheel gearshift paddles.
In conjunction with the new OM 654 engine family the Mercedes-Benz Vito is fitted as standard with rear wheel drive – with the option of 4×4 permanent all-wheel drive. This enables it to negotiate a wide range of surfaces with ease. The vehicle height remains under the two-metre mark even when equipped with all-wheel drive. Thus the Vito does not lose any of its day-to-day usability and can still fit in regular garages as well as multi-storey and underground car parks and car washes problem-free.
