Mercedes-Benz to Reveal New V-Class on Thursday – Watch it Live Here Now

We won’t need to wait until the first week of March and the 84th Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland for our first unobstructed view of the new Mercedes-Benz V-Class people-carrier and van series after all.

Today, we learned that the W447-codenamed replacement of the current Viano and Vito passenger and light commercial vans will be officially introduced during a special presentation in Munich, Germany, this Thursday, January 30, and you can bookmark this page to watch the unveiling through a live video stream.

What we know about the new V-Class is that, while it will keep the current series’ no frills, boxy shape on the outside, it will move away from its van heritage inside sporting a modern and luxurious interior inside, fitted with the same creature comforts and gadgets as Benz’s other passenger models.

Mercedes stated the following:

“The V-Class offers an elegantly designed body and interior in the style of a Mercedes-Benz passenger car, a spacious and highly versatile compartment and efficient drive systems, combined with the highest level of comfort in its segment. It turns in an impressive performance both as a spacious family car and flexible vehicle for leisure activities and as a luxury people carrier, for example when used as a shuttle bus.”

Following its world premiere in Geneva, the new V-Class will go on sale during the second quarter of the year in Europe, and may find its way in Benz’s North American showrooms in 2015 as well.

On a side note, if you’re into trucks, the same player found below will also host a live video stream of the new Mercedes-Benz Actros SLT und Arocs SLT on Tuesday, January 28.
