Mercedes decided to exhibit its "Vision" van at the CES in Las Vegas and gives us a taste of the future

The vision van is unique.

It combines transport and digitisation, using information at an unprecedented level.

The van is fully connected to the chain from the goods distribution depot to the recipient.

It included a fully automated load compartment as well as integrated drones for air deliveries and a state-of-the-art joystick control.

Powered by a 75kW electric drive system with a range up to 270km (167 miles).

The vehicle communicates with other road users via the Black Panel radiator grille with LED matrix and a LED display at the rear.

The driver will be relayed information to a smartwatch regarding manual deliveries. He will also be provided information on drones flights, route planning...

In a nutshell, a whole new world opens for the industry.
