SINCE its release, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Panel Van has been hailed as the ultimate forward-looking, efficient and reliable mobility solution. Offering three vehicle lengths, two roof heights and an impressive load compartment volume of up to 15.5 m3, regardless of your business need, the Sprinter Panel Van has the answer. Complete with the distinctive Mercedes-Benz look and high-quality finishes, the Sprinter is bound to leave a lasting impression of being both easy on the eyes and even better for work.
However, in 2022, one noteworthy benefit of the Sprinter overshadows all else. Fuel efficiency.
Whilst fuel efficiency has always been a key consideration when purchasing a commercial vehicle, with the current cost of fuel reaching sky-high levels, having a vehicle with fuel-efficiency technologies at the core of its design is critical to keep your business running.
Marinus Venter, Head of Product and Marketing at Mercedes-Benz Vans, says that the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter ticks all the fuel-efficiency boxes. “Our diesel engine model promises low fuel consumption with its demand-based fuel pump control. Other efficiency features include reduced internal friction, optimised pistons and improved belt drive.” He adds, “Another fuel-saving attribute is the gear spread, which has been specially adapted for Mercedes-Benz Sprinters and allows the engine speed to be kept as low as possible in every driving situation.”
The Sprinter continues a heritage of proven economy that spans more than 25 years. Mercedes-Benz continuously strives to optimise their vehicles, to reach a point of exceptional efficiency, and this fact is evident in the Sprinter Panel Van. The vehicle is available with an automatic transmission drivetrain, with fully integrated electro-hydraulic gearbox control. This allows for lower fuel consumption, reduced emissions and shifting ease, which helps to lower the engine rpm and increase mileage. The Sprinter Panel Van also offers a choice of diesel engines with three output levels, which combine power and economic efficiency in an exemplary manner.
