Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd, said: “Our mighty Sprinter is already WLTP compliant, and has been since it launched in the UK in 2018, so we can offer continuous supply without interruption. We have taken the opportunity that WLTP emissions testing gives us to further benefit customers by adding in the fuel-efficient Stop/Start technology across the Sprinter range.
“I’m aware of the often confusing message given by manufacturers as to product availability of WLTP compliant vehicles, so with this in mind we wanted to make it easier for people to choose Mercedes-Benz. We are actively engaged in the introduction of WLTP as our customers will benefit from a more realistic, comparative benchmark for consumption and emission figures. By taking this opportunity to add Stop/Start technology to our Sprinter range, we once again put ourselves in the most supportive position to help keep our customers’ businesses moving.”
