Mercedes-Benz teases redesigned Sprinter [Video]

The third-generation van will be among the first vehicles to feature the company\'s new AI-powered MBUX infotainment system.

Mercedes-Benz Vans has released a teaser video for the redesigned Sprinter.

The third-generation van was engineered to accommodate the company's 'adVANce' strategic initiative, promising support for increasing popular commercial technologies and business models such as on-demand transportation and deeper connectivity to software platforms.

A previous concept showed how the Sprinter could be used as a mothership for a small fleet of delivery robots, simultaneously delivering packages to eight homes in a neighborhood before the tiny drones drive back in to take a ride in the big van to the next stop.

Drivers will be treated to the automaker's latest consumer comforts, including the AI-powered MBUX infotainment system that learns and adapts to better suit the user.

Additional details are being kept under wraps until the redesigned Sprinter makes its official debut on Tuesday.
