A history of cockpits at Mercedes-Benz Vans
Just like the workplace of truck drivers, the evolution of the van cockpit reflects the technical progress made over the decades. The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter today demonstrates in a special way how drivers and co-drivers alike can efficiently and ergonomically perform their tasks in great comfort. Keyless Start, powerful air-conditioning systems, back-friendly seats, as well as the optional 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and the MBUX multimedia system are just a few details with which the Sprinter relieves strain on its users day in, day out. However, the van driver's workplace in the first delivery vans looked more like a coachman's seat.
