Available to order now, the new Sprinter goes into production in June and brings advanced connectivity features as well as front-wheel drive and nine-speed auto and an electric version from 2019.

Making its debut at the show ahead of the van’s UK launch later this year, the pre-production 2018 Mercedes Sprinter – which will feature a camouflage wrap – will be showcased with a refrigerated body from the Hull-based refrigerated bodybuilder.

Developed with a very low access height, the Paneltex side loading refrigerated home delivery body eliminates the need for a side step. This Paneltex triple compartment body covers ambient, chilled and frozen goods in a single body and features a lightweight Paneltex GRP-moulded door frame. The vehicle also has the Paneltex GRP-moulded air deflector for improved refrigeration performance and aerodynamics.
