Mercedes-Benz on Tuesday revealed a redesigned Sprinter van and confirmed it for sale later this year, as a 2019 model.
The design has trodden down a high-tech path, which Mercedes says will lead to simpler fleet controlling and optimized communications between fleet manager and driver. Key to this are new levels of connectivity plus new telematic systems grouped under the Mercedes PRO heading.
The new systems that Mercedes PRO offers mostly mimic existing ones from the likes of Fleetmatics, Enterprise, Verizon, and others. While most offer real time in-van inventory monitoring and driver/manager communication, Mercedes PRO has the advantage of being more integrated with the workings of the van itself, specifically with the in-built MBUX infotainment system.
