Mercedes-Benz Citan revealed

Following on from the embryonic renderings and initial details, Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled its 2013 Citan model.

Due to make its debut at this September’s IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover; the new urban delivery van, which joins the Vario, Sprinter and Vito models in the company’s van range, will be available in three different lengths: compact (3.94 m), long (4.32 m) and extra-long (4.71 m). Apart from the original panel van guise, two other configurations can be specified: the extra-long Citan Mixto vehicle with five seats, two sliding doors and a folding rear seat bench, and a long wheelbase Citan crewbus. Also a five-seater, the crewbus features a folding rear bench and optional sliding doors on each side. Finally, customers can opt for a wide-opening tailgate rather than the standard rear end doors.

High levels of safety equipment includes the Adaptive ESP (Electronic Stability Program) which utilizes the Citan’s anti-locking braking system (ABS), VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) which impedes over- and understeer, TCS (Traction Control System) and ASR (acceleration skid control).

Powerplants include three turbodiesel engines ranging from 55 kW (75 hp) to 81 kW (110 hp) as well as a supercharged petrol unit developing 84 kW (114 hp). The BlueEFFICIENCY package consists of a start/stop function, battery and generator management and low rolling resistance tyres. An electric drive E-CELL version is also on the way.
