One all-new Vito Taxi has been sold every hour in London, based on hours of selling from Mercedes-Benz Dealer S & B Commercials at Welham Green, Hertfordshire, from 1 January to 31 March 2017*.
In March alone, 287 Vito Taxis were sold in London, bringing the final tally to 326 vehicles in Q1 2017.
However, with new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) legislation pending, Mercedes-Benz Vans is advising London cabbies to reserve their new Vito Taxi build slot as soon as possible, as stocks are severely limited.
Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd, commented: “To be selling the equivalent of one new Vito Taxi in London every hour at the start of 2017 cements the overwhelming success of this all-new vehicle.
“Unfortunately though we may be in a situation where we risk running out of production. I know that the Vito Taxi is a game-changer and I thank the cabbie fraternity in London for their patience in waiting for their sales slot with the expert team at S & B Commercials, but if anyone does want to buy a Vito Taxi this year, please ensure you put your name down as soon as possible as we would not like to disappoint anyone.”
Offering unrivalled levels of space and refined comfort for the driver and up to six
passengers, as well as being fully- wheelchair accessible, the new Mercedes-Benz Vito Taxi sets the benchmark for London’s black cabs.
Standard equipment also includes fuel- saving BlueEFFICIENCY measures like the engine Start/Stop function, air conditioning for the driver and passengers, electric folding mirrors, electrically operated sliding doors on both sides and an electrical nearside and off-side step.
The new Vito Taxi comes with a three- year, unlimited mileage manufacturer’s warranty and MobiloVan back-up, which includes free, round-the-clock emergency roadside assistance.
The new Vito Taxi London is supplied exclusively via Mercedes-Benz Dealer S & B Commercials at Welham Green, Hertfordshire. Visit www.mbvitotaxi.co.uk for more information.
