Lightweight Carbon Chassis – Mercedes-Benz Sprinter


The user advantages of lightweight composites:

  • > 1.450kg payload
  • Fewer vehicles & drivers for the same payload
  • Only driving license class B (GVW 3.5t)
  • 4-6 % fuel and CO2 reduction per vehicle
  • Significantly reduced fleet consumption
  • Larger box bodies due to lower chassis

The manufacturer’s advantages of lightweight composites:

  • Lower consumption and positive C02 footprint
  • Meet WLTP despite larger box bodies – due to low-floor chassis
  • Larger wheelbases and box bodies
  • Improved safety: 5x higher crash energy absorption than steel
  • Release for commercial and leisure applications
  • High fatigue strength
