mercedes-benz-sprinter

Mercedes-Benz unveiled the third generation Sprinter van at its newly constructed Mercedes-Benz logistics center on the Mercator Island in Duisburg, Germany. It will be available in the Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle centers and Van ProCenters in the U.S. market by the end of the year.

The new electric eSprinter, meanwhile, will enter the market in 2019 (U.S. availability TBA).

The Sprinter has the potential to offer more than 1,700 different configurations worldwide (U.S. product program TBA). The product range includes, for example, solutions for courier services on the last mile delivery, for goods transport over longer distances or for service technicians using their vehicle as a mobile replacement parts store. The new Sprinter can also be put to work as a camper van or bus, and can be used as an ambulance by rescue services, Mercedes-Benz reported.

The assistance systems available for the new Sprinter include a self-cleaning rear-view camera in the rear-view mirror, a 360-degree view parking camera system, and a rain sensor with an integrated Wet Wiper system for optimum visibility even during the wiping process.

The new line of Sprinter vans offers connectivity in the form of the networked services of Mercedes Pro Connect combined with the new multimedia systems to provide the foundation for all logistical and transport requirements. Mercedes Pro Connect links the fleet manager with all the vehicles and drivers in the fleet. This enables assignments to be managed online, and vehicle information such as location, fuel level or maintenance intervals to be retrieved almost in real time, the company explained.
