Early Mercedes Sprinter Van model
The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a full-size van, built by Daimler AG of Stuttgart, Germany as a van, chassis cab and minibus, and sold as under the model name Mercedes Sprinter. Rebadged and re-engined Sprinters are also sold by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles as the Volkswagen LT and the Volkswagen Crafter.
The first generation Sprinter was launched in Europe in 1995 to replace the famous but outdated Mercedes-Benz TN van (dating from 1977). It was voted International Van of the Year for 1995.
The second generation Sprinter was introduced in Europe in 2006. It was voted Van of the Year 2007 and again in 2008 by Professional Van and Light Truck Magazine.

As San Diego, SoCal, USA based independent enterprise with priority in Vans by Mercedes rentals Sprinter Rentals USA like to give you also a little feedback on the road to success the Sprinter followed in the American market.

The first generation (VA Chassis) North American Sprinter was launched in 2001 in the U.S., and originally branded as a Freightliner. Units sold to the rest of North America were badged as Mercedes until 2003 when they received Dodge branding. Units in the United States and Canada, but not in Mexico, could be purchased as a Dodge or Freightliner brand from 2003. The product was launched and supported by DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC, a small division based out of Huntersville, North Carolina. Key individuals from DaimlerChrysler Commercial Vehicle Division and Freightliner Trucks were selected to spearhead the effort and made up the bulk of the division.
DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC retained sole responsibility for the North American Sprinter market until the sales, service and parts support responsibilities were absorbed by Chrysler Commercial Vehicle Division in 2004. Nearly all of the original staff were retained, though the base of operations shifted from North Carolina to Auburn Hills, Michigan.
The remainder of DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC remained active in Huntersville as an engineering, upfitter certification and safety compliance resource in support of the Sprinter.
