Enercon Canada takes delivery of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4 fleet

An exceptionally versatile and hard-working vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has established itself as the natural choice for companies seeking to satisfy a broad range of business and industry needs, as well as a broad range of transportation requirements. For ENERCON, whose wind farms are frequently located off the beaten track on rugged terrain and away from main roads on, the Sprinter 4×4’s 4ETS electronic traction system provides assurance that technical assistance will arrive when and where it is needed. The model’s payload capacity, fuel efficiency, and safety further qualify it for the rigours of daily use.

This model retains its best-in-class payload capacity and fuel efficiency even with the added weight of the four-wheel drive system.

It can also be equipped with an optional low range gear that makes it even more sure-footed in difficult terrain. Downhill Speed Regulation can be added optionally to slow the vehicle down to a set speed during downhill grades.

Although not an off-roader, the Sprinter 4×4 gets 20% more ground clearance for an increased ride height.

The exclusive powertrain for the 4×4 Cargo and Passenger vans will be the powerful 3.0L V6 BlueTEC that offers 188 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque.

The Sprinter 4×4 will open up new markets and opportunities and provide our customers that rely on their vehicles as an integral component of their business, with a full choice of commercial vans engineered to handle virtually any situation.

The exclusive powertrain for the 4×4 will be the most powerful of the two BlueTEC clean diesel engines available in the Canadian Sprinter, which is the 3.0L V6 BlueTEC with 188 hp and 325 lb-ft.

The Sprinter 4×4 is a commercial van that reaches new levels of versatility and driving conditions with maximum traction. While the Sprinter 4×4 is not officially considered an off-roader, its capability is appreciated on construction sites, oil fields, and in foul weather – just to name a few scenarios. The all-wheel drive system is activated at the push of a button, for which torque is then distributed at a ratio of 35:65 between the front and rear axle. At this point, the Electronic Traction System (4ETS) takes over, and the tech takes care of the rest for the driver in various conditions. This combination of all-wheel drive technology and active safety is only available on the Sprinter in this segment.

The Sprinter 4×4 can also be equipped with an optional low range gear that makes it even more sure-footed in difficult terrain. When the driver pushes the low-range button, the gearing is shortened by 42%. Tractive power increases accordingly.
