07 Jan 2017 | International News : U.K.

The hotly anticipated all new Mercedes-Benz Vito Taxi has officially launched in London, U.K. Offering unrivalled levels of space and refined comfort for the driver and up to six passengers, as well as being fully-wheelchair accessible, the new Mercedes-Benz Vito Taxi sets the benchmark for London's black cabs, and is now available to hail in the capital.

Tested by real cabbies at VanExperience Live in June 2016, and most recently as part of the marketing campaign around the city, the London edition of the new Vito Taxi uses the low-emission 114CDI Euro 6 engine, which offers 136bhp. In conjunction, the fuel efficient 7G-TRONIC PLUS seven-speed automatic gearbox also comes as standard. Controlled via a steering column-mounted lever, this transmission reduces driver fatigue by offering easy gear selection and smooth gear changes, enabling the driver to remain aware of their busy surroundings.

The London-specific model comes with a compact body length and incorporates a rear steering axle that allows it to meet the famous 7.6-metre turning circle rule as prescribed by the Public Carriage Office so it can execute a U-turn in London's congested streets. Standard equipment also includes fuel-saving BlueEFFICIENCY measures like the engine Start/Stop function, air-conditioning for the driver and passengers, electric folding mirrors, electrically operated sliding doors on both sides and an electrical nearside and off-side step.
