As the popularity of Sprinter vans has increased so markedly in North America over the past years, Daimler Trucks is taking the next logical step and bringing production of the vehicles to this side of the Atlantic. While the German-based unit will still produce Sprinter vans as before, the new North American production is expected to make these highly useful vehicles much more accessible to U.S. customers, which is good news for domestic fleet owners and drivers alike. Read on to find out more about Sprinter vans’ journey to North America!
The head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, the makers of Sprinter, acknowledged that the only way to adequately meet the needs of their North American customers was by adding a production plant within their own country. When Sprinter vans were being shipped over from Germany (at a staggering 23,000 just last year), there were definite downsides: longer delivery times, for one, and increased prices due to import tariffs for another. But with a home-grown Sprinter van, fleet owners will no longer have to worry about those inconveniences.
While the demand for Sprinter vans and similar Daimler vehicles continues to grow stateside, solutions like bringing production to North America will become more and more necessary. Daimler’s decision benefits everyone involved: the company will be able to produce their vans without the headache of facing taxes and extended delivery periods, and customers will have easier, more efficient access to their favorite products.
