Buying a taxi is a big decision. It’s your future business, so the vehicle you choose needs to be not only capable of going the distance but also needs to prove cost effective on the journey. The London Vito Taxi does all that.
Mercedes-Benz Vans has launched its all-new Vito Taxi; a worthy successor to the vehicle that took the industry by storm, which has sold in excess of 3,000 units since its launch in 2008.
The inclusion of our new generation of clean but powerful EU6 engines has had a dramatic effect on performance over their EU5 predecessors. The EU6 engine uses our proprietary BlueEFFICIENCY technology, which not only improves fuel consumption but also reduces CO2 emissions.
Lower emissions not only have a beneficial environmental impact they also reduce your excise duty banding meaning you pay less.
It’s not just at the pump or the DVLA where you’ll notice the difference, it’s in the total cost of ownership. The Vito Taxi comes with servicing intervals of up to 24,000 (based on vehicle usage) thanks to the unique Service ASSYST engine management system and also comes with a 3 year and unlimited mileage manufacturer’s warranty.
Each vehicle comes with MobiloVan included as standard, which entitles you to free roadside assistance for 3 years in UK & Europe. Finally, provided your Vito Taxi is serviced and maintained regularly through our Agility scheme, you’re guaranteed a strong residual value when you come to replace your vehicle.
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, London edition of the new Vito Taxi comes with the low-emission 114CDI Euro 6 engine as standard together with the 7G-Tronic seven-speed automatic gearbox, which is now controlled using a steering column-mounted lever; offering easy gear selection allowing the driver to remain aware of their busy surroundings.
The London Taxi comes with a Compact body length, incorporating the rear steering axle that allows it to meet the famous 25ft 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 the fuel-saving BlueEFFICIENCY measures like the engine Start/Stop function, air conditioning for driver and passengers, electric folding mirrors, electrically operated sliding doors on both sides and electrical near-side and off-side step.
Appearances count and the understated quality of a Vito Taxi will not only provide a memorable experience for all your passengers but also provide a lasting impression of your business. It’s the refined way to travel around town.
The Vito Taxi is available in a choice of three metallic paints:
There are a range of accessories available to enhance the appearance of your Vito Taxi, including: Chrome Front Grille, Chrome Door Handle Covers, Chrome Mirror Covers, Wind Deflectors, Floor mats, Wheel Trims.
