MB live event Millbrook Proving Grounds Thursday 11th June 2015


Ten members of the VitoTaxiClub were invited as guests to MB live event at Millbrook proving grounds on 11.6.15. A great day was had by all testing out various vans, and 4×4 trucks over various tracks, and terrains, good fun, and quite an experience.

The test guys told us “your guys are all great drivers”. The Euro 6 Van with its new engine, and gearbox plus new safety features is a very impressive vehicle to drive. Up to 47 mpg they told us.

MB gave our group the five star treatment, reserved table, and a meeting when the event closed with the MD Steve Bridge, and senior staff. Very interesting chat about our trade issues, and of course we discussed the Euro 6 taxi derivative.

Nice touch that they took the time after a tiring day presenting the show, to meet our group for a long chat. Steve thanked our club for supporting MB through some difficult times with the Vito taxi business.

He told us about MobiloVan which sounds ideal for our business, so check this out yourselves.

Big thank you to the rest of the MB team that really looked after our group, our members appreciated this, and enjoyed meeting MB senior management.
