Sprinter Total Cost of Ownership

Savings over the long haul.

The true cost of a vehicle goes well beyond the sticker price. Fuel costs, maintenance costs, the vehicle’s retained value and other items can all affect your bottom line down the road. Using independent research by Vincentric,™* this information shows the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a Mercedes-Benz Van versus its closest competition. Of course, with the lowest TCO in its class, the competition really isn’t all that close.

Fuel costs are rising.
For some more than others.

Fuel cost is the single-highest operating expense a vehicle incurs. Lucky for your business, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has the lowest fuel consumption of any vehicle in its class. Our powerful diesel engine with BlueTEC SCR clean diesel technology saves you up to over 38% when compared to our competitors’ gasoline-powered vehicles. And with fuel costs averaging 13 cents / km, the Sprinter can reduce fuel costs by up to $3,896 per 50,000 km, a remarkable savings of over $19,400 over 5 years.**

Maintenance Interval

1 year or up to 30,000 km

A van shouldn’t get days off.

Your van should be on the job helping your business make money, so relying on it to run smoothly when you need it is a priority. With an extended maintenance interval of up to 30,000 kilometres, your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will spend more time on the road and less time on a hoist. And with dealers all across Canada providing dedicated quality care, when your vehicle does need service, it will be in, out, and back to work in no time.‡

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 25%

Nissan NV 2500 21%

Cargo isn’t the only thing it holds.

One element of TCO that’s typically overlooked doesn’t have anything to do with how much a vehicle costs you. It has to do with how much it’s worth. A van that retains value puts more money in your pocket at the end of its service life. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter depreciates at a much lower rate than that of its competition, commanding a higher resale value than any commercial vehicle in its class. Maximum return with minimum expense. That’s something every business person values.
