Innovative technology meets stylish design.

Operation via voice commands and a smartphone app together with innovative and automated features play an increasingly important role in the camper van sector: mobile homes are facing more demanding challenges. With the Concept Marco Polo, Mercedes-Benz creates a vision of how the future of camping could look. This vision of the camper van of the future combines stylish design with advanced functions. A range of new high-tech features have been integrated into the Marco Polo.

Connected home through ground-breaking features.

The compact camper van features an extensive range of innovative equipment details and operating concepts that set new standards for the mobile “connected home”: in addition to the voice control, all of the functions can be controlled via smartphone or the infotainment system. The “heart” of the control system is the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Control, abbreviated to MBAC.

Experiencing the Concept Marco Polo.

The voice control is an especially futuristic highlight: using the keyword “Hey Mercedes”, the roof can be extended or retracted, the seat bench can be converted into a comfortable sleeping surface and the electrically driven awning operated along with a diverse range of lighting scenarios. The filling level of the water tank can also be called up. Another revolutionary detail: the automatic window tinting. Liquid crystals integrated into the side windows ensure that the glass becomes opaque and blocks out the light in a matter of moments. This function can also be controlled via voice command, app or the multimedia system.

The absolute all-rounder.

With its ground-breaking features, the Concept Marco Polo is the perfect companion for all outdoor activities. The pneumatic suspension can compensate for uneven surfaces with differences of up to 12 centimetres. Independent mobility wherever you are: the luxury camper van with the star effortlessly transports bicycles and e-bikes thanks to the bicycle carrier. E-bikes can also be recharged quickly and easily using the integrated solar module. The perfect outdoor experience including alternative energy supply thanks to a solar module with an output of 400 W.
