Next Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Teased

Next Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Teased”

Ahead of its launch next year, Mercedes-Benz today took to the North American Commercial Vehicle Show in Atlanta to provide the first details on the next-generation Sprinter van.

Connectivity is also set to improve, so a wi-fi hotspot is possible - although priorities in this area are likely to run to vehicle logistics and telematics, allowing for accurate tracking and planning of fleet movements. The new Sprinter is also expected to pack in more technology, including some of Mercedes' driver aides.

The next Mercedes-Benz Sprinter applies a number of new safety systems and auxiliary control functions. The second-generation Sprinter came along in 2006 and is available with rear or four-wheel drive and with short, medium, long and extra-long wheelbases.

The brand will also offer "a considerably extended range of variants". We want to offer the most suitable mobility solution for every sector and for every transport assignment. "And that is precisely our focus with the upcoming Sprinter generation as an overall system solution", said head of Mercedes-Benz Vans Volker Mornhinweg.

That's because, for the first time, the Sprinter will be made outside Germany, at a new plant in Charleston, North Carolina, as well as the two original Sprinter plants in Dusseldorf and Ludwigsfelde. Currently, due the the chicken tax, Daimler assembles the vans in Germany, then disassembles them for shipment to the US where they are reassembled at a soon-to-be-defunct SC facility.

The German brand has this week given an early preview of how its all-new Sprinter will look when the production version emerges in the first half of 2018.
