2 April, 2018: From today brand new X-Class utes will drive out of Mercedes-Benz dealerships all around Australia. With pricing starting from $45,490 plus on roads Mercedes-Benz Vans has already had more than 8,000 customers register their interest in buying the vehicle, with some leaving deposits at dealerships to secure early orders.

World wide, it’s consider one of the biggest vehicle launches for the year. Mercedes-Benz Vans kicked off their marketing campaign by inviting Henry Rollins to travel around Australia in an X-Class creating a podcast and documentary called Tough Conversations which interviews real Australians on what it means to be tough. The documentary will air on Network Ten’s ONE channel at 9.30pm April 18th.
