History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Mercedes-Benz Sprinter page on 4 December 2019, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a light commercial vehicle (van) built by Daimler AG of Stuttgart, Germany as a van, chassis cab, minibus, and pickup truck. In the past the Sprinter has been sold under the Mercedes-Benz, Dodge, Freightliner, and Volkswagen nameplates. In the U.S. it is built from complete knock down (CKD) kits by Freightliner. They are now primarily marketed by Mercedes-Benz. Rebadged and re-engined Sprinters were also sold by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles as the Volkswagen LT and the Volkswagen Crafter.

The first generation Sprinter was launched in Europe in 1995 to replace the famous but outdated Mercedes-Benz TN van dating from 1977. It was voted International Van of the Year for 1995.

The second generation Sprinter was introduced in Europe in 2006. It was voted Van of the Year 2007 and again in 2008 by Professional Van and Light Truck Magazine.

The third generation Sprinter debuted on 6 February 2018 at the Mercedes-Benz logistics centre in Duisburg and was available to purchase from June 2018. It is the first generation to include a front-wheel drive van in the line up.
