Known by its nick-name ‘Dusseldorf Transporter’, the development of this model opened a completely new segment of commercial vehicles in the market.
While the earlier L319 model was curved, rounded and small, this van addressed the need of someone requiring larger volume space. In 1967 when the first vehicle rolled out of the Duesseldorf factory, this Mercedes van model immediately caught the attention of commercial users as it filled the gap between a bus, truck and a van.
This vehicle was positioned between a large truck and a van. It had a higher payload capacity, comforts like that of a bus with additional seats at the rear (when used as a crew pick-up cab).
In Argentina, where these were also produced during the years 1969-1990, the Mercedes L 608 D were used as Tow Trucks.
