The 10,000th Mercedes-Benz Sprinter presented on stage

Mercedes-Benz Russia is cooperating very successfully with Luidor, a body manufacturer that produced the 10,000th Sprinter bus at the beginning of March.

The Mercedes-Benz T1N is on the road under the name “Sprinter Classic”

Since 2013 Mercedes-Benz Russia has also produced the world’s most famous large van: the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. Its name is synonymous with the entire “large vans” segment. The Mercedes-Benz T1N, marketed in Russia as the Sprinter Classic, is manufactured in Nizhny Novgorod where it is also thoroughly tested by Mercedes-Benz specialists to ensure that it complies with Mercedes-Benz quality standards. The sales figures make the Sprinter Classic the Mercedes-Benz Vans flagship in Russia: More than 6,500 Sprinter were sold to their Russian owners in 2014 alone.

An anniversary for Mercedes-Benz Vans and PKF Luidor

PKF Luidor was the first Russian body manufacturer with Mercedes-Benz certification. The body manufacturer currently produces five different small bus variants for Mercedes-Benz Russia. Since last year this has also included the Sprinter Classic Mixto. Daimler inspects the quality of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Classic and provides Russian colleagues with modern technologies and know-how, thus guaranteeing the global standard. An engine which also originates from Russia can also be found under the hood: the OM 646, which is produced in Yaroslavl on one of the most innovative production lines.
