BIRMINGHAM, England, January 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
The 21st - 24th January sees Travelworld Motorhomes showcasing the exclusive Hymer 4 x 4 M-LT 580 at Manchester's EventCity Caravan and Motorhome Show.
The highly-anticipated 3-berth M-LT 580 is a new 4 x 4 model and has only previously been created as a 'concept' vehicle. Nick Barker, Sales Manager at Travelworld Motorhomes, said: "We are excited to be part of the UK Premier of Hymer's MLT 580 4x4 at the EventCity show. It will be the first 'production line' 4x4 motorhome to be marketed in the UK."
Nick added: "The 4x4 was launched over 12 months ago in Germany and has been extraordinarily well received. Sales are triple that of initial Hymer forecasts for the first year's production and the 4x4 now accounts for almost 20% of all M-LT sales. Agility and vehicle usability are one of Hymer's key development areas. The MLT 4x4 is as agile and usable as motorhomes come. As with all Hymer vehicles, luxury and comfort compliment this fantastic new model, which, as in Germany, is sure to be a hit with the buying UK public."
"Travelworld have received orders for this vehicle, 'unseen' by customers who immediately appreciate the benefits that the 4x4 option provides. Clearly they do not want the terrain or the weather to hinder their travel plans."
The launch of the M-LT 580 is the latest in a long line of success from the German motorhome manufacturer, who, last year, achieved record sales. It is built on a 4 x 4 Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis and its lightweight frame (weighing less than 3.5 tons) coupled with the latest driving technology, allows for even more manoeuvrability.
Hymer is working on a new and revolutionary modular design with Mercedes Benz in the form of the V-Class HymerCar. The model allows for storage modules to be moved around to a customer's individual specification, for example, there are separate 'blocks' for the sink, fridge and stove, allowing for flexibility never seen before.
Ross Edwards, Managing Director at Travelworld said: "Hymer is looking to extend its HymerCar range and this exciting new concept model underlines the commitment the company has to this markeg segment. HymerCar has seen massive sales growth in the last 12 months and 2016 model year production sold out late last year."
