Mercedes-Benz offering special incentive for London taxi drivers who choose the new Euro 5 Vito Taxi

Article by Christian A., on April 2, 2012

Mercedes-Benz UK is offering a special incentive for London taxi drivers to switch to the new Euro 5 Vito Taxis. Aside from an impressive financing offering, Mercedes-Benz is giving an additional £1,500 incentive to the first 50 vehicles sold of the new Euro 5 Vito Taxis. The discount is given off the purchase price or cashback option in exchange for branding that’s stylish and subtle.

Mercedes-Benz emphasizes the cleaner air messaging on the lower half of the Vito Taxi and back door for 18 months. According to Steve Bridge, Van Sales and Marketing Director at Mercedes-Benz, the automaker has been linked to public transport for a long time. Daimler launched the first bus in the world in 1898, considered to be a major event in passenger travel.

But even today, Mercedes-Benz continues to lead the way when it comes to comfort and efficiency for the driver and customer with the new Euro 5 Vito Taxi. Bridge added that it hopes to welcome more drivers to join the special London initiative programme and be a part of history. The new Euro 5 Mercedes-Benz Vito Taxi sets the standard for taxis in many cities including London.

It is very versatile and offers high levels of comfort such as six seats for fares. Its fuel economy is improved, its emissions are lower, and the comfort of the taxi driver and the passengers is prioritized.

The Vito Taxi promises a series of technical merits like the very advanced 4-cylinder CDI engines and BlueEFFICIENCY models that lead the class when it comes to economy and sustainability. All of the four CDI diesel engines comply with the requirements of the Euro 5 emissions standard and use up much less fuel than its former engines, while also cutting exhaust gas emissions.

Ride comfort is improved with the use of in-engine measures. Furthermore, the Euro 5 Vito Taxi gets a three year/150,000 mile warranty and to help decrease whole life costs, it offers up to 24,000 mile service intervals. Each model gets Service24h as standard, providing free roadside assistance to drivers for three years.

Mercedes-Benz’s new-generation Vito is available with the following as options: Bi-xenon headlamps, cornering lights, LED daytime driving lights, a headlamp washer system, and Add-Light system. The car’s cornering light is controlled through the indicator lever and it is effective up to a 70-km/h speed. Meanwhile, the Add-Light system activates at speeds between 40 km/h and 70 km/h, depending on your steering angle.

Moreover, the front bumper of the Mercedes-Benz Vito comes with an upgraded design that features a honeycomb look. Its grained surface is hard-wearing as well as highlights the car’s robust character. You can opt to avail of the bumper in the painted and smoothed finish of the exterior color of your chosen Vito model variant.

Compared with the previous Mercedes-Benz Vito model, the new Vito sports several modifications between the headlamps and rear section. Also, the new fully galvanized steel wings have a maximum dimensional accuracy that ensures exact gap dimensions. And for the sake of safety, the car’s newly designed exterior mirrors give you a much larger field of vision. Nevertheless, their housings are smaller and actually look more elegant.

What’s more, different colors contribute to the new Vito’s revamped look. Its new and modern paint finishes complement all the changes to its exterior.
