Even though Mercedes-Benz has a long tradition of successful vehicle lines “made of work”, this need from customers made it inevitable to make its first attempt of launch a pick-up truck and gain a share among competitors in this increasing market. From early 2015 rumors and concept photos made their first appearance and spread rapidly on the internet. This lasted until July 2017, when Mercedes-Benz unveiled in world premiere which took place in Cape Town the new X-Class. According to schedule, the first trucks delivered in European market on January 2018 and the number of sales for first quarter were exceeded Mercedes-Benz expectations.

All these new customers will then be searched for accessories to equip the trunk of their brand-new vehicles.
