Mercedes-Benz’ Vitoria, Spain plant recently celebrated a production milestone as the    100 000th V-Class rolled off the assembly line.

The jubilee V-Class will be transformed into a compact Marco Polo Horizon recreational vehicle, and delivered to a customer in Spain. The new Marco Polo Horizon, which is based on the V-Class, was launched to expand the Mercedes-Benz Vans’ camper and recreational vehicle range in the beginning of the year. It combines maximum functionality with the high-quality design of the V-Class.

Production of the V-Class began in March 2014 in Vitoria, and since inception, the vehicles popularity has soared. Last year, with around 58%, it achieved the greatest growth rate within the Mercedes-Benz Vans product portfolio, with around 48 700 units sold.
