The updated lineup includes the V-Class, EQV, Vito, and eVito models, all of which boast new exterior and interior designs, as well as advanced digital systems.
While an exact launch timeline for the South African market has not been confirmed, the company aims to introduce these exciting new models within the next 18 to 24 months. Additionally, Mercedes-Benz plans to electrify its offerings, with the eVito and EQV making their debut in the South African market in 2024.
To cater to different audiences, Mercedes-Benz is adopting a dual strategy, with a full “Luxury Strategy” for private-oriented models like the V-Class and EQV, while adopting a more focused premium approach for the Vito and eVito commercial vans.
The exterior enhancements are equally impressive, with new alloy wheel designs in various sizes and five fresh exterior paint colors to choose from, giving customers more personalization options.
Inside the vans, drivers will be greeted with a redesigned instrument panel, new air vents, and upgraded steering wheels featuring capacitive hands-off recognition.

The MBUX infotainment system comes as standard on the Vito commercial models, while the V-Class and EQV gain additional functions like Augmented Reality navigation, music streaming, and Energizing Comfort Control, elevating the overall driving experience.
Mercedes-Benz doesn’t stop there, offering an array of premium features, including wireless charging, keyless start, a heated steering wheel, 64-color ambient lighting, and an Easy-Pack tailgate, ensuring maximum comfort and convenience.
Digital extras are also abundant, with various options such as maintenance, accident and breakdown management, remote locking and unlocking, and Car-to-X communication, keeping drivers connected and protected on the road.
In conclusion, Mercedes-Benz has outdone itself with the 2024 midsize van range, pushing the boundaries of luxury, innovation, and technology.
