The Mercedes-Benz Vito is a light van produced by Mercedes-Benz in Vitoria, Spain. From the name of the city Vitoria came the name Vito. The name was also derived from an exemplary, long-standing employee, Vito Rosenstein. Vito's dedication to the company resulted in an unusually high accolade.
It is available as a standard panel van, or with additional passenger accommodation substituted for part or all of the load area.

- In 2010, Mercedes will start a limited test run of 100 Vito EVs (with 20 customers being able to expect delivery this year) powered by a 32 kWh lithium-ion battery attached to a 90 kW electric motor. It is expected to provide a range of 130 km (81 mi) and haul 900 kg. If all goes well with the limited test run, the company will produce an additional 2000 units of the Vito to expand market testing.

Current Generation: (2003–present)
The angle of the windshield and A-pillar is closer to horizontal; the dashboard is bigger and the bonnet (hood) smaller. The newer Vito is available in 3 different lengths and 4 diesel engine versions being the 109 CDI, the 111 CDI, the 115 CDI and the powerful 120 CDI. The model numerics conform with the Mercedes pattern that relates to a rough guide to engine power output. In the Vito range currently the 109 has 93 bhp (69 kW), 111 relates to 116 bhp (87 kW), 115 to 150 bhp (112 kW; 152 PS) and 120 to 204 bhp (152 kW; 207 PS).
The 2nd generation Vitos are all Euro 3 compliant (additionally Euro 4 compliant as of November 2006) and therefore exempt from the upcoming Low Emission Zone in London. This requires commercial vehicles (vans) to reach at least Euro 3 standard from October 2010.
London Taxi variant
In August 2008 a variant of the Vito was approved by the Public Carriage Office for use as a licensed London 'black cab'.<ref>PCO Notice - Mercedes-Benz Vito Taxi, Public Carriage Office notice at Transport for London, 13 August 2008</ref> The Vito taxicab includes electric sliding doors, electric steps and seating for six people. The Vito's rear-wheel steering enables it to meet the PCO's strict 25 ft (7.6 m) turning circle rule and it is wheelchair accessible.<ref>Hail, the new London cab, London Evening Standard, 26 June 2008</ref> The vehicle, a variation of the 'Traveliner' model, is built by Penso in Coventry. The rear wheel steer system is licenced from one80, and it is distributed through Eco City Vehicles subsidiary KPM-UK Taxis.<ref>Mercedes-Benz to launch eco-friendly London black cab, Daily Telegraph 17 June 2008</ref>
Because the Mercedes Taxi has sliding doors the option of opening windows is no longer available to passengers. The PCO (Public Carriage Office) has also specified that the option of sliding windows has also been banned, this is due to the danger of passengers having part of their body out of the windows when the doors open.
The new Taxi doesn't perform the famous u-turn in the same way as the TX and Metro models, instead it incorporates an electrically operated rear wheel system, activated by a button adjacent to the steering wheel. This turns the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front wheels, thus allowing the Taxi to perform the same tight turning circle as the TX and Metro models. This system is only possible when the vehicle is travelling at less than 5 mph (8.0 km/h), and if the vehicle goes over 5 mph (8.0 km/h) while the LSM is active, it is deactivated and the wheels straighten up.
It is longer and wider than the TX models, but traveling through tight spaces is aided by the electric folding wing mirrors, from the options list which as of 2009 is standard.
First Generation/Origins W638 (1996-2003)
The first generation Mercedes-Benz Vito was produced between 1996 and 2003. It is powered either by a diesel engine with up to 120 bhp (89 kW; 122 PS) or a gasoline engine with up to 140 bhp (104 kW; 142 PS) and a front-wheel drive drivetrain.On the top of the petrol engine was Volkswagen 2.8 VR6 engine.
The body chassis came from the Volkswagen Transporter.
This body was also sold as V-klasse in its more luxurious version while Vito was the "work horse" (V-klasse was replaced with the Viano-name for gen II of Vito)
If the vehicle is sold in other markets worldwide, then this is the section to mention that information. Also, mention if the <MODEL> goes by another name in these other markets.
