What Is the Mercedes Sprinter Van?
The Mercedes Sprinter Van is one of the many products that Coachwest offers, but many people don’t realize how versatile it really is. We’d like to fill you in on some of the details about the Sprinter that make it a standout example of hardy, reliable vehicles that can be adapted for all kinds of different uses.
A Brief History
The Mercedes Sprinter Van has been around for a while, first launched in Europe in the mid-90s and finally making it’s way to the US in 2001. The van was manufactured as a replaced for the previous van that Mercedes offered, the TN, which hadn’t been replaced since its introduction in the ‘70s. Although it’s gone through a few minor modifications to keep up with technological and engineering developments in the years since, the recognizable white van that is the standard Sprinter has kept the same basic, utilitarian design.
Common Uses for the Sprinter Van
The main uses for the Mercedes Sprinter Van, at least from Mercedes’s design standpoint, are for commercial and business purposes. Designed to carry weight over a long distance, and to be durable and reliable, the Sprinter is ideal for transporting goods and supplies. In the US, commercial use of the Mercedes Sprinter Van is mainly cargo – carrying a smaller load than a semi for expedited deliveries. Outside the US, some countries have also seen the Sprinter adapted for use by police forces and ambulances.
What Makes It So Useful?
One of the major benefits of the Sprinter for transporting goods is its height – it’s a tall van! This allows for a surprising amount of storage space in a relatively small vehicle (compared to other cargo options), while the expert design retains its ability to handle well despite its shape. Accessibility and intuitive control are also important in the Sprinter, with its 270-degree rear doors offering easier loading options, and a telescope/tilting steering wheel offering more dynamic handling options, among other features.
For someone considering buying a Mercedes Sprinter Van directly from the manufacturer, there are a wealth of different customization options available. These include additional sliding doors, rearview cameras, upgraded seats, upgraded heating and air-conditioning, and more. With all of these options available, we come to why Coachwest loves the Sprinter – it’s versatile!
Mercedes Sprinter Vans and Customization
The simple-but-smart Sprinter design makes it all the easier for customization, which means that – when it comes to custom luxury rides – these vans can be tricked out in all sorts of ways. The tall interior, complete with comfortable leather seats, mounted TV screens, a fully integrated sound system, or whatever other personal touches you might want to include, makes for a roomier limo experience.
The Sprinter Van offers a wonderful blank canvas for imaginative custom uses. The spacious interior doesn’t just mean there’s room for more passengers to enjoy the luxury,\ but also more space to fit the newest technological bells and whistles, or creature comforts, to show off your ride.
