Mercedes-Benz kits out the Metris with its own toolbox in all-new concept

The Mercedes-Benz Metris (called Vito locally) Toolbox Concept comes with its owns set of tools and equipment straight from the dealer. The toolbox van was built by Mercedes' in-house upfitter, Master Solutions. Rather than taking it to a third party, customers can opt to have the van outfitted from the factory having been suited to their needs.

From the name itself, the all-ne concept shown in Chicago does look like a toolbox. It features a side opening, which once opened upwards, shows all the tools and equipment inside one might need for their work. The exterior of the van is treated to a silver and turquoise color scheme with artwork of tools, screws and nuts on the passenger side.

With built in shelves, racks and removable cases, it has more than enough storage to handle any job. A high grip tile floor prevents slipping, and can be removed for clean up if needed. A plastic divider serves as partition between the front and the rear, allowing drivers to monitor tools once on the road. Like a standard Metris or Vito, it is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo and mated to a seven-speed automatic.
