Shipments will start at the end of the year.
Mercedes-Benz Argentina announced that it will return to export to the United States Sprinter utility units, produced at the Juan Manuel Fangio Industrial Center, located in Virrey del Pino, La Matanza.
This is a new production batch of the third generation of the Sprinter, which will be shipped at the end of the year and adds to the more than 10,000 Sprinter that have already been exported in recent years during the second generation of the model.
"It is the first and only local terminal to export units produced in Argentina to the demanding United States market," said Manuel Mantilla, president of the local branch of the German brand.
This shipment is part of the strategy set by the Daimler Group to complement the units that are manufactured in Germany and that also reach the US market. The German factory in Ludwigsfelde is, together with the one in Argentina, the only two Mercedes-Benz locations in the world that produce Sprinter in its Chassis version.
This will be the type of vehicle that will be exported from Argentina, which then allows the installation of a body or other equipment behind the cabin according to the needs of each client.
The Sprinter has more than two decades of experience in the Argentine market and now with the third generation it gained more comfort, equipment and safety, in addition to changes in its design.
To manufacture the third generation of the Sprinter in Argentina, which has been produced since last year, the German company made an investment of more than $ 150 million.
