CV SHOW: Sprinter stop-start debut
22 April 2008
At the centre of the Mercedes stand will be the Sprinter Safety Van
Stop start technology has appeared on Mercedes' Sprinter van for the first time.
The system, dubbed Eco-start, was given its debut on the vehicle at the CV Show.
Fuel consumption is claimed to show an improvement of at least 6% with the equipment, which is available on all 4-cylinder manual Sprinters.
On sale now at £545 more than the standard model, most of the additional cost goes toward the required special battery and alternator.
