Mercedes-Benz MB100

The Mercedes-Benz MB100 (Model type 631) is a van made by Mercedes-Benz España S.A. from 1981 to 1995 at their Vitoria-Gasteiz factory in northern Spain. It was offered as a cargo van, a passenger van, and a pickup truck.

Mercedes-Benz España S.A. had obtained the Vitoria factory from Industrias del Motor S.A. (IMOSA) which had been making their F1000 L van there. The F1000 L was a development of the DKW Schnellaster, but with a Mercedes-Benz diesel engine instead of the original DKW two-stroke petrol engine. The MB100 was a further development of IMOSA's F1000 L van.

The MB100 was powered by a 2.4 litre diesel making about 55 kW (73 hp), an engine also used in the Mercedes Benz 207D.

The MB100 was offered in Germany from 1987 to 1995 as an extension of Daimler-Benz's commercial motor vehicle range. In 1992 the MB100 was given a slanted radiator and an extended front end, intended among other things to enhance safety in a collision.

The MB100 was replaced by the Mercedes-Benz Vito in 1996.
