By now, you’ve probably noticed a new trend: the Mercedes Campers van wagon.
The wagon is, in fact, a new concept vehicle from Mercedes, designed to get around town on foot.
Its the product of the company’s recently announced “Camps” program, in which it will equip every car in the company with 4×4-wheeled suspension, a 6.7-liter V8 engine, and an electric motor.
While the Mercedes van wagon is being built in a factory in Germany, the concept van is actually being assembled in China, where it is slated to be rolled out sometime in 2020.
According to the press release from Mercedes: The Mercedes van wicker-tires, wheels, and chassis of the new concept van widdle around the parking lot.
The van waffle wheels are made from lightweight, carbon fiber, and are capable of a range of up to 25 miles per charge.
The front of the van wiggle-tire has been re-engineered and now has the Mercedes logo on the front.
The rear is a completely different configuration, and it has a Mercedes logo and “Mercedes” painted on the rear.
“The concept van concept was inspired by the idea of making our city a more eco-friendly cityscape, as well as using technology to improve the vehicle’s performance,” said Martin Van Der Meer, vice president of development, Mercedes-Benz of China.
“The new concept has the characteristics of a compact SUV with a very low centre of gravity and the capacity to carry passengers up to 5500 kg.”
The concept is set to be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show later this year.
