Any fleet decision maker would do well to book their place at the forthcoming Mercedes’ Van Experience Live event.

Now in its 15th year, the event – held at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire between June 21-28th – will give attendees the chance to put the X-Class pickup through its paces on an off-road course.

Guests can also try the rear-wheel-drive and new front-wheel-drive variants of the Sprinter on road.

Elsewhere, the Vito and Citan will be available to take part in a special MPG challenge on Millbrook’s city course, while hands-on safety system demonstrations will show exactly what sets Mercedes-Benz vans apart from the competition.

Experts will be on-hand throughout the six-day event to answer any questions and help explain the benefits of operating a Mercedes-Benz van.

Almost 22,000 people have attended Van Experience Live over the past 14 years, revealed Steve Bridge, managing director of Mercedes-Benz Vans UK.

“We’re very excited to show off the technology and advanced capabilities of [the new Sprinter], and for many visitors, it also provides an unmissable opportunity to test the X-Class on arguably one of the best off-road courses in Europe,” he commented.

“We enjoy welcoming guests to this event every year and certainly 2018 promises to be another fantastic occasion.”

Van Experience Live 2018 is a free event open to all van users, owners and operators, with free food and drink available throughout the day.

Ben Robb, brand manager at The Fuelcard People, added: “Mercedes-Benz vans are some of the most robust and premium commercial vehicles on the market and any company vehicle operator would be proud to have just one in their fleet.”
