Market launch for the new edition of the best selling large van in the first half of 2018
The new features include the comprehensive introduction of driving assistance systems and connectivity services in combination with new telematics, which, the company claims, will bring a leap forward in efficiency for vehicle and fleet management. Moreover, the new Sprinter can be even more precisely adapted to individual transport and sector requirements thanks to a considerably extended range of variants.
The market launch will commence in Europe in the first half of 2018. Further details of the vehicle will be announced in the coming months. The van has been the flagship model of Mercedes Benz Vans since the launch of the first Sprinter in 1995. With a total of more than 3.3 million units delivered to over 130 countries, the Sprinter is
one of the most successful commercial vehicles ever, and the best seller in the product portfolio of Mercedes Benz Vans. With a growth rate of around 10 per cent from January to March 2017 compared to the same period last year, the Sprinter achieved the most successful first quarter performance in its more than 20 year history. Likewise, in the first half of 2017 the Sprinter was able to break a new record: In total, sales increased to about 96,200 units (previous year 95,100).
