Mercedes-Benz Sprinter gets chequered flag on emissions technology

Published on Tuesday 24 September 2013 in Van News

Mercedes-Benz has claimed its new Sprinter is the first van to meet the forthcoming Euro6 emissions standards as well as being the most economical in its class, with fuel economy of 44.4mpg on the combined cycle.

The new Euro6 emissions levels require manufacturers to drastically reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons and particulate mass. The Sprinter manages to achieve these tough targets due to the Sprinter's BlueTec engine and SCR technology that injects AdBlue into the exhaust gas.

The Sprinter has done really well so far in the UK and with the help of achieving this emissions milestone, looks set to achieve its target of 20,000 sales for 2013.

It's not just the under-bonnet technology which is attracting the sales. The new Sprinter's appearance has been improved to make it more striking. Meanwhile the emphasis the company plays on safety is not ignored with five new driver assistance systems including 'crosswind assist', 'collision prevention assist' and 'blind spot assist', all designed to help reduce accidents.
