Simply put, we expect the T-Class to be a more lifestyle-oriented small van for private customers, in the same vein as the Peugeot Rifter.

Mercedes Benz must be feeling bored/brave at the moment because it feels like every other day, Mercedes is bringing out a new nameplate for a new type of vehicle class.

The German firm's flagship model has led the way for technology and safety for some time - in fact it's often referred to as the "best vehicle in the world" - and now Mercedes is readying its seventh-generation S-Class ahead of an imminent debut.

MERCEDES-BENZ Vans could be set to enter the niche urban van market with the all-new T-Class, a vehicle the brand teased and outlined this week. "With our unique design philosophy of Sensual Purity we create an attractive family companion being the T-Class inspiring with its design, proportions and its perceived value". The passenger auto will be called the T-Class, while the commercial van version will continue to wear the Citan moniker, with both launching in early 2022. "The letter T stands for efficient room concepts and is thus perfectly suited as a model designation for compact family vans bearing the three-pointed star", a press statement informs. Access to the passenger compartment will be via a pair of sliding doors in order to provide easy access to the interior. Alongside conventional drive systems, there will be also a fully electric version.

The new S-Class also debuts rear wheel steering, which improves both low-speed manoeuvring ability and agility. Mercedes-Benz Vans in the small van segment In the small van segment, Mercedes-Benz Vans has been represented by the commercially positioned Citan since 2012.

Like the outgoing model, the T-Class and new Citan will be produced in co-operation with the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance, so it's likely to share the mechanical platform and engine technology of the next-generation Renault Kangoo.

In terms of a local introduction, Mercedes-Benz Vans Australia and New Zealand corporate communications manager Blake Vincent said the brand was now "assessing the suitability" of the Citan and T-Class "but no decision to launch in Australia has been made" as yet.
