The new Mercedes-Benz V-Class was presented to the Japanese public at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show and will become available in Japan as of January 2016. With the start of sales in Japan, the new MPV is setting out to make its mark in a further important right-hand-drive market, after Great Britain. This week the V-Class is also presented at the Dubai International Motor Show and will become available from spring 2016 onwards in markets like the United Arab Emirates and other countries in Middle East. Since its market launch in 2014 the V-Class has proved itself internationally successful. Sales increased by 22 percent to 24 900 units in the first ten months of this year. The V-Class is now available from Mercedes-Benz passenger car and commercial vehicle dealers in more than 90 countries.

According to Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans: “The rapid growth of V-Class sales underlines that our MPV suits our customers’ taste – and does so all over the world. I am convinced that the quality and the many opportunities for individualization offered by the V-Class will also appeal to our customers in markets like Japan or Dubai.”

“By the way we will be extending our V-Class portfolio further in 2016 with new features such as the AMG Line or the largest panoramic roof in the segment”, says Volker Mornhinweg.
