Mercedes kicks off the teasing game for the all-new, 2018 Sprinter image

The German automaker should have all those interested in commercial vehicles keenly focused on the upcoming new Sprinter – which is said to arrive in Europe during the first part of next year.

Just in time for the first North American Commercial Vehicle Show (September 25-28), Mercedes-Benz Vans has come up with a teaser in the form of the featured design sketch and some interesting details about the upcoming new generation Sprinter. For starters, this time around the iconic Sprinter’s engineers aren’t sharing the development process with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. No matter, because the utility van is going to feature an even wider palette of versions to better cater all commercial vehicle segments.

More so, just like any Mercedes-Benz passenger car, the Sprinter too will be choke full of driver and safety assistance systems, as well as new and more efficient telematics that will surely please fleet managers. Mercedes is also teasing the new Sprinter at the NACV show in Atlanta since the van will be produced in the United States at a new plant in North Charleston that’s currently unfinished. Naturally, the new van will continue to be produced at the Ludwigsfelde and Dusseldorf facilities in Germany, with the latter factory also in charge of the all-electric version set to arrive later in the model’s life cycle.
