Mercedes-Benz will introduce a smaller eSprinter option in its 2025 model year release. The 2025 eSprinter and Sprinter will be available in the second half of 2024.

The Sprinter and eSprinter will update the Mercedes Benz User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system in the new model year. The MBUX features a 10.25-inch display with faster computing power and upgraded menu navigation.

MBUX’s voice assistant has increased intelligence, with certain actions able to be triggered without saying, “Hey Mercedes.” The integrated smartphone connection to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can be made wirelessly. Software updates are available over-the-air.

The Sprinters’ steering wheel features capacitive sensors, like a smartphone, detecting when a consumer’s hands are on the steering wheel.

MBUX updated its rear-view camera integration. The central display will now show a hatched area behind the rear where the rear doors can be safely opened.

The Sprinter and eSprinter’s safety and assistance systems have additional and new or further developed functions. The Active Brake Assist now includes an intersection function to warn drivers about oncoming vehicles, at speeds up to 37 mph, and dangerous overtaking maneuvers at speeds of up to 43 mph. In an emergency, at speeds of up to 25 mph, the system will assist with turning to avoid a collision.

The new Sideguard Assist better perceives passenger-side drivers. If the system detects another vehicle in the danger area, an LED light flashes in the exterior mirror when the turn signal is activated. At the same time, an acoustic warning signal sounds via the instrument cluster.

Optionally, for the first time, the Moving-off Information Assist avoids collisions with other vehicles when driving away. The system detects other vehicles within an area of 12 feet in front of and 19.6 inches next to the vehicle. In the event of an impending collision, an acoustic and visual warning signal is sent via the instrument cluster. The function is active up to a speed of 6 miles per hour.

A new front camera enhances the Active Lane Keeping Assist. The digital interior mirror offers a rear view even if there is no rear window or visibility. An HDR (High Dynamic Range) camera on the roof’s rear transmits an image of the traffic behind the Sprinter to the rear-view mirror.A picture of the Mercedes eSprinter Van.

Andreas Zygan, head of Mercedes-Benz Vans Development, said, “With its versatility, a new generation of infotainment systems and enhanced safety- and assistance systems, the Sprinter continues to be the perfect overall system solution for a wide range of commercial transport and mobility requirements. Meanwhile, the new eSprinter impresses with its efficiency, range and load volume.”

Upgraded packages include the Winter Package PLUS (heated front seats, heated steering wheel and wet wiper system) and the Drive Assist Package (with various driver assist systems and 360 degree camera).

Among other things, standard equipment features tire pressure monitoring (front/rear) for dual rear wheel models, rain sensor, entry handles on the front doors and passive child detection in the crew or passenger models.The Mercedes me connect app, provides free services such as maintenance, accident and breakdown management, as well as remote services such as locking and unlocking the doors. In addition, for the first time, customers will be able to take advantage of the new satellite view and significantly improved navigation for trailers and oversized vehicles.

Finally, new eSprinter options are available as well. The 144-inch wheelbase eSprinter provides an 81 killowatt-hour battery rather than the 113-kilowatt-hour battery in last year’s 170-inch wheelbase, high-roof model.

The 81 kWh battery provides a range of up to 204 miles per charge. The 113 kWh battery’s range is up to 297 miles.

The 144-inch wheelbase model offers 319 cubic feet of cargo volume and a 3,516-pound payload. The 170-inch wheelbase model with high roof provides 488 cubic feet and a 3,120-pound payload.

All eSprinter variants have a gross vehicle weight of up to 9,370 pounds.

Iain Forsyth, director of product management and marketing, Mercedes-Benz Vans USA, said, “Daily delivery vehicles generally follow a fixed predictable route that is usually under 150 miles, making the eSprinter the perfect solution for last-mile-deliveries. However, businesses have different needs when it comes to range, cargo volume and payload. It is important to us to expand our product mix and provide options that tailor to their specific commercial purpose.”
