Smaller Mercedes-Benz T-Class MPV coming in 2022

Mercedes-Benz will add a new MPV to its line-up by 2022. This will be called the Mercedes-Benz T-Class and sit below the V-Class in its line-up. The new T-Class will be a derivative of the commercial Citan Van. This MPV will be co-developed with the Renault-Nissan Alliance, sharing components with the new Renault Kangoo MPV also under development.

The previous generation of the Mercedes Citan van also co-developed with Renault-Nissan. The two organization already have a relationship in place in 2010, where engines, platforms and production facilities are co-developed. For example, the 1.3-litre turbo-petrol in the BSVI Kicks is also fitted to many of Mercedes FWD models like the A-Class and GLA.

The T-Class will differentiate itself by being a more upmarket offering than its Renault twin and is pitched as a lifestyle offering. It will carry the newest Mercedes design language and will be aimed at the luxury MPV market. There will be high-quality materials and the newest tech from Mercedes incorporated into the T-Class. The FWD model will also feature sliding doors in its second row to maximize usability. A fully-electric model is being developed too. As for the conventionally powered versions, we expect it to carry the familiar 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines found in other Mercedes models.

There is no word yet on whether the T-Class will come to India. But given Mercedes-Benz India's aggressive product plans, we can expect to see this MPV here soon after its global launch. In fact, sitting below the V-Class, this MPV could plug a massive gap that has emerged in the newly active MPV segment in the country. It could slot in above the Kia Carnival and below the Toyota Vellfire.
