Mercedes-Benz Vans has celebrated the success of its Sprinter model at this year’s Motor Transport Awards.
The model picked up the unprecedented honour of being named the winning Fleet Van of the Year for the tenth time.
Ten years of success for the Sprinter
Simon Neill, sales director at Mercedes-Benz Vans, commented: “This is a wonderful result and a great reflection of the hard work and commitment that as a team we are all putting in to ensure we keep our customers moving.”
Motor Transport editor Steve Hobson added the judges highlighted the strength of the Sprinter in holding its value as one of the key factors in their decision.
It was also praised for its leading use of technology, low maintenance costs and excellent reliability.
“From the enormous breadth of the range to the unwavering development and support from the manufacturer, the Sprinter and its backup define what an operator needs from a van,” he concluded.
Overall, the Sprinter continues to demonstrate a broad and strong appeal to UK fleet operators. Indeed, it was first named Fleet Van of the Year all the way back in 2003.
Ellie Baker, brand manager at Fuel Card Services, comments: “To be awarded such a prestigious honour ten times in total is no mean feat, and the Sprinter truly stands out as a van beloved by the people.”
