Mercedes is a name that is associated with sophistication, performance and power. Vito vans by this celebrated German automobile manufacturer are light-weighted commercial vehicles that are rolled out from their Victoria plant in Spain. There are mainly two reasons behind the name given to the vehicle, one is derived from the name of the place from where it is produced and the other one is derived from the name of a dedicated employee, Vito Rosenstein. The short form of Victoria is Vito and on the other hand, Vito also stands for the name of the long standing employee of the company.Mercedes Vito lease vans are mainly available in two different variants, the first one is a standard panel van and the second one makes room for more passenger area by compromising on the load area part.
