Mercedes-Benz Debuts Metris Midsize Commercial Van

Posted on March 4, 2015


MONTVALE, N.J. — Mercedes-Benz Vans USA  introduced the “Mercedes-Benz Metris” at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis on March 4.

This follows the “Mission: Metris” teaser campaign at SEMA in Las Vegas in November 2014, which featured four custom upfitted Metris concept vans. The Metris, which launches at U.S. dealers in October 2015, is the U.S. and Canadian sibling to the “Vito,” which remains the midsize commercial van nameplate for all other global markets.

“The Mercedes-Benz Metris is a major step in launching our midsize commercial van in the U.S. market in October 2015,” said Bernie Glaser, vice president and managing director of Daimler Vans USA, LLC. “It is only logical that we adopt the global approach and also expand our successful van business in the USA. Our SEMA ‘Mission: Metris’ presence with four distinctive van concepts was an effective way for us to hit the ground running to announce the nameplate ‘Mercedes-Benz Metris.’ We can’t wait to offer our customers and upfitters both the Sprinter and Metris Vans.”

The Metris is designed to thrive in large metropolitan areas with an agile yet spacious presence. The Cargo Van starts at $28,950, and the Passenger Van starts at $32,500 (excluding $995 destination/delivery charge for both vans).
