The Sprinter prototype celebrates its world premiere. With a range of 135 kilometers it is perfectly suited for downtown areas, short highway trips and country roads. Before the Sprinter goes into production, it has to convince potential customers on the IAA. It`s already the second electric van from Mercedes-Benz and a further development of the Vito . For example the battery charging time was reduced to two hours.
Also new this year – the Vito crewbus. It is the first Van worldwide with seven seats for locally emission-free passenger transport. Like the box van with the electric power train the crewbus has a range about 130 kilometers. Driving saves fuel, breaking generates energy. That’s the principle of the parallel hybrid power train.
An aerodynamic design also saves fuel and emissions. The so called Aerodynamics Truck by Mercedes-Benz shows good shape in the wind tunnel. The MAN Concept S also offers less air resistance.
