When buying a motorhome, you can usually count on having to wait a long time – but that’s not the case with the exclusive Edition1One models from Hymer GmbH & Co. KG. 150 models of each of the Hymermobil B-MC I 580, HYMER B-MC T 580 and HYMER ML-T 580 will be available to customers from October. “With the Edition1One, our customers will receive their dream motorhome mere weeks after placing their order – before the vehicles have even officially reached the dealers – and will be able to set off on their holidays straight away,” says Christian Bauer, Managing Director of Hymer GmbH & Co. KG. “All of our special edition models are based on the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, feature comprehensive standard equipment and an exclusive limited-edition badge, and remain under the 3.5-ton limit – even with four passengers.”
A first in the industry: collaboration between HYMER and Mercedes-Benz Vans
The B-Class ModernComfort models are notable for their extremely lightweight bodywork, improved aerodynamics, a considerable increase in storage space due to the double floor, as well as their standard 180-litre fresh water tank and 150-litre waste water tank. The award-winning SLC chassis – which has been exclusively combined with the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter’s chassis cowl for the B-MC I 580 and B-MC T 580 – is what makes this possible. The close collaboration between HYMER and Mercedes-Benz has resulted in the creation of the most unique motorhome in the history of the industry. The HYMER ML-T 580 is also based on the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with rear-wheel drive.
Exclusivity and a smooth ride as standard: the Edition1One from HYMER
The vehicles come with lots of extras, such as TEMPMATIC semi-automatic air conditioning and a leather steering wheel. The original Mercedes-Benz 16-inch alloy wheels, the Metallic Silver paint finish for the bodywork of the motorhome and – for the semi-integrated models – the Metallic Tenorite Grey cab make the Edition1One a truly eye-catching vehicle. The limited-edition badge detailing the unique number of the vehicle is another striking feature. You can choose between two wood finishes with colour-coordinated imitation leather upholstery materials for the interior of the edition models. The standard ambient lighting also creates a unique atmosphere on board. The exclusivity of the models is also reflected in the interior design. Both the seating area and dashboard have been embellished with the Edition1One logo, for example.
The vehicles are bursting with technology as standard. The B-Class ModernComfort models, for example, have a new 9G automatic transmission with torque converter featuring 177 hp and hold function, while the ML-T comes with the 7G-Tronic automatic transmission featuring 163 hp and hold function. All Edition1One models are also equipped with the ECO start/stop function. The Mercedes MBUX 10.25-inch multimedia system including navigation with multifunction steering wheel, DAB, touchscreen and reversing camera offers the latest multimedia applications in the cab, whilst being particularly easy to use. The two semi-integrated vehicles, the B-MC T and ML-T, also feature a panoramic roof over the cab that can be opened manually, a mosquito net blind on the entrance door, as well as concertina cab blinds for the cab. The integrated B-MC I boasts a driver’s door with an electric window lift and step lighting. All three models come with an additional cushion that can be used to transform the two twin beds with ladder at the rear of the vehicle into a giant sleeping oasis. All three models also come with an additional socket package consisting of five 230 V and two 12 V sockets, as well as two double USB ports, including the kitchen wall cladding. For relaxing evenings in your motorhome, there’s a 32-inch LED flat-screen TV with integrated loudspeakers and DVD drive, as well as the HYMER Smart Multimedia System with Bluetooth on board. Even with four passengers and the comprehensive Edition1One fixtures and fittings, the vehicles remain under the 3.5-ton limit and offer ample payload reserves.
The limited-edition models of the Hymermobil B-MC I 580, HYMER B-MC T 580 and HYMER ML-T 580 will be available from dealers from October 2018.
