Ten new Mercedes-Benz Viano AMBIENTE vehicles are representing the DeutschMobil programme from September 2008 on a tour through France to promote French schoolchildren's interest in learning German.
The new DeutschMobil vehicles were presented in Saarbrücken, Germany, by Thomas Urbach, Mercedes-Benz sales organisation, Germany, to Kurt Brenner, President of Deutsch-Französischer Häuser. The vehicles will travel through the French regions of Aix-en-Provence, Bordeaux, Caen, Dijon, Lyon, Montpellier, Nancy, Nantes, Paris and Toulouse.
"Understanding the language of the other and understanding the neighbouring country’s culture are both preconditions for good relations on the human, political and economic planes. As a globally operating corporation we want to promote this exchange and have thus supported the DeutschMobil initiative from its inception" Thomas Urbach explains the reasons for this involvement.
