Mercedes-Benz will renew its fleet of commercial vehicles for 2013. The new addition to the lineup will the compact-sized Citan van, based on the underpinnings of the Renault Kangoo. The Germans have already previewed this forthcoming model at a special event conducted by Volker Mornhinweg, former AMG boss and current head of the Mercedes-Benz Vans division. When it's introduced by fall this year at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hannover, the Citan will sport an entire range of efficiently-running gasoline and diesel engines with BlueEFFICIENCY technology as well as several safety features. The vehicle is currently subject to road development; first spy shots come from Arjeplog, a popular region in Scandinavia where all major automakers send their future models for the winter programme. As seen in the images, a camouflaged Renault Kangoo mule is being used for the initial testing phase of the Citan. Check out further photos after the break!
