M arktstart for the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter City 75 and his brothers (Sprinter Transfer 23, 35 and Sprinter Mobility 23) should be this year. The bus will celebrate its premiere at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover in September 2018. All models are based on the Sprinter with rear-wheel or optional all-wheel drive. The new Sprinter City 75 can weigh up to 6.8 tonnes and has a wheelbase of 5.10 meters. The fact that it can load so much at all is thanks not least to the air-sprung high-load rear axle, which has taken the place of the previous double axle. Its outer skin is made of glass fiber reinforced plastic. The side panoramic glazing can also be ordered as double glazing.
The wear-free additional brake Telma retarder with 350 Newton meters of braking power ensures that the Sprinter, which is based on an independent frame structure, decelerates gently. A parking brake is optionally available for the versions up to 4.1 tonnes maximum total weight. There are also assistants such as the crosswind, distance keeping, active braking and active lane keeping assistant. The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter City 75 can also be started without a key.
For the first time electronic sun blind on board
The cockpit now comes with numerous shelves and charging options for electronic devices and a 7.0 or 10.25 inch high-resolution color screen, which is installed in the center console and includes the new MBUX infotainment system. For the first time, the driver can use an electric sun blind in front of theProtect the low sun. The pay table comes from the predecessor. While the driver has access to a semi-automatic air conditioning system and an additional electric hot air heater, the passenger compartment is air conditioned by a roof-top air conditioning system with an output of eleven kilowatts, a heat exchanger with fans and a convector heater. In addition, roof vents are installed as standard - top-hung windows are optional.
Due to its step height of 27 centimeters, Mercedes-Benz has dispensed with the kneeling function in its new Sprinter City 75. A folding ramp is installed as standard, which provides direct access to the low-floor zone. There is space for up to seven folding seats or 26 standing passengers. The bus interior ceiling with ventilation ducts on both sides houses the new LED lighting. Entry and exit are via a two-wing outer swing door to the front axle and a single-wing rear door.
Support from the Sprinter City 45
The current top model Mercedes-Benz Sprinter City 75 will initially be from the Sprinter City 45, which will celebrate its premiere in spring 2019. This 7.40-meter-long Sprinter has been modified to meet the approval as a class 1 bus. 30 passenger seats, including 13 seats, are possible. The maximum permissible total weight is 5.5 tons.
