Next Gen Mercedes Sprinter to Be Built in North America

Posted on October 24, 2014 by Tom Halligan - Also by this author - About the author

FRANKFURT -Daimler announced it will build the next-generation Mercedes Sprinter van in North America, shifting some production from Germany to improve competitiveness.

Daimler currently assembles Sprinters in Ladson, South Carolina, from kits shipped from Germany. The company did not say where future North American production will be.

"We can cover the growing demand for large vans in the North American market economically only if we produce the vehicles locally in the NAFTA region," Volker Mornhinweg, head of the Mercedes' vans division, said in a statement.

Mornhinweg said Daimler will decide on the exact location for the future production of the Sprinter in the NAFTA region during the coming months. The NAFTA region includes Mexico, the United States and Canada.
