MERCEDES-BENZ PRESENTS THE SPRINTER TRANSFER 45 AND SPRINTER CITY 45
After having shown the Sprinter City 75 at last years IAA now Mercedes-Benz is presenting the long awaited Sprinter Transfer 45 and Sprinter City 45. The Sprinter Transfer is the flexible all-rounder and the Sprinter City 45 represents the entry into the Sprinter City model series world.
For both the Sprinter Transfer 45 and Sprinter City 45, the standard engine has an output of 105 kW (143 hp). A six-speed manual transmission is responsible for power transmission to the rear axle on the Sprinter Transfer 45, or as an option, the 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission with torque converter. The latter is part of the standard equipment on the Sprinter City 45. Both minibuses can be equipped to passenger-car standard with assistance systems suitable for each individual area of operation.
The Sprinter Transfer is the flexible all-rounder. Measuring 7.4 metres in length, the new Sprinter Transfer 45 is the largest model of the series. It has seats for up to 22+1 passengers and a permissible gross vehicle weight of up to 5.5 tonnes. Passengers enter the Sprinter Transfer through a sliding side door with an electrically operated step. As an option, entry is also possible via a widened and lowered co-driver's door.If desired, Mercedes-Benz can equip the Sprinter Transfer 45 with an air-sprung rear axle or a retarder as a wear-free auxiliary brake.
The 7.4-metre-long Sprinter City 45 represents the entry into the Sprinter City model series world. The double-wing passenger door with its large windows and extremely low entry are an indication of its operational areas. The bus has a body width of just 2.02 metres and a turning circle of 15.3 metres. The permissible gross vehicle weight of 5.0 to 5.5 tonnes guarantees that the bus has sufficient weight reserves even when fully occupied with up to 30 passengers. The passenger compartment features a low-entry design and is divided into a low-floor platform between the axles and a higher seating area at the rear. Both the bus ceiling with integrated LED light strip and the CityStar Sprinter seats are characteristic features of its interior.
