Article by Christian Andrei, on February 23, 2012

There are now more than 30 trade partners and branches of Daimler AG across Germany that are operating as service and sales outlets for the Mercedes-Benz Vito E-CELL, ensuring blanket coverage in the country for the first van to have the standard-fit electric drive ex-factory. The guiding principle of Mercedes-Benz is evident in the latest and innovative drive technology of the Vito E-CELL.

In relation to this principle, pioneers of the new drive technology will enjoy comprehensive services. The Vito E-CELL is being marketed through 33 partners and branches of Daimler AG, while services are available from 30 partners and branches.

Just like the other Vito units, the Vito E-CELL is integrated in the standard procedures such as the regular Star Diagnosis system, enabling any workshop to qualify for the Vito E-CELL. Essentially, the process involves in-depth training of personnel since only the electrics experts are allowed to work on the automobiles fitted with high-voltage systems.

The qualification procedure includes varying levels and culminates in qualification as a specialist for high-voltage systems in automobiles. When it comes to any of the Mercedes-Benz units, specific replacement components for the Vito E-CELL can be procured from the company's Central Supply Depot in Germersheim.

When it comes to maintenance, the Vito E-CELL is specifically simple and cost-effective, as it only requires servicing once a year or once every 20,000 km. Aside from the routine checkups for potential leakages and correct functioning, the mechanics also inspect all high-voltage cabling and parts. Servicing costs are low since there is no oil or oil filters necessary to be replaced on the electric van.
