The carmaker will skip the concept stage, unveiling the production V-Class range online ahead of an official world premiere at March's Geneva Motor Show.
Details of the V-Class range are thin on the ground, although Mercedes promises a more car-like interior and an exterior design that brings the big van in line with the brand's latest models.
Last year, images of the new model's cabin appeared online, revealing a sweeping new dash design that draws on the interior styling of the new C- and S-Class models, with wood and aluminium highlights throughout.
Leaked sketches of the exterior also point to a more stylish design, with sharp headlights and a deep character line along the profile.
Engine options will reportedly include a range of four-cylinder engines with varying outputs, all mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
Watch for more details to come later this week.
