The Mercedes‑Benz minibuses on the basis of the Sprinter take a leading role in Europe when it comes to minibuses over 3.5 t permissible gross weight. They supplement the range of large buses from Daimler Buses, so it now includes a complete range for all fields of application. The offering consists of four model series: the specialised Sprinter City covers urban and suburban regular-service, the flexible Sprinter Transfer takes care of inter‑city routes, school bus services, excursions and shuttle services, the Sprinter Mobility represents the transportation of passengers with restricted mobility and the Sprinter Travel tourism. At the Busworld show the Sprinter Travel 75 is celebrating its world premiere; the 8.5 m long minibus is the exclusive face of tourist transportation.
The platform of the Sprinter Travel 75 is the chassis from the Mercedes‑Benz Sprinter, but only up to the B‑pillar. Aft of the B-pillar is a self-supporting integral minibus skeleton. This offers advantages including around ten centimetres more interior width in the passenger compartment than minibuses on the basis of the Sprinter Panel Van. This creates the installation space for the especially comfortable Mercedes‑Benz large bus seats in a 2+1 configuration.
The new city Sprinter Travel 75 is characterised by an autonomous wheelbase of 5100 mm. The permissible gross weight is 6.5 t and offers sufficient reserves for comfort-enhancing equipment, passengers and luggage. The basis of the high permissible gross weight is a high-load rear axle with air suspension developed exclusively for Mercedes‑Benz minibuses.
The autonomous and extravagantly shaped body of the Sprinter Travel 75 takes the form of the Sprinter. Its panoramic windscreen is also drawn far upwards, underlining the impression of a touring coach. The cab and body merge with one another to form a single unit. The glazing on the body is distinctively arrow-shaped at the front, whilst at the rear the window support climbs aft of the rear axle. This produces an inimitable side line. The side panoramic double glazing features black glass. At the rear a touring coach tail end rounds off the Sprinter Travel 75. The design of the minibus is legally protected. Behind the luggage compartment flap there is a 2.0 m³ stowage space. To the left and right it is supplemented by side stowage spaces with respective capacities of 0.3 m³. The reversing lamps come from the EvoBus range, emphasising the family likeness and simplifying the supply of replacement parts. The exterior panelling in FRP with its perfect fit and smooth surfaces conveys the impression of the high quality level boasted by the Sprinter Travel 75.
Passengers enter the passenger compartment of the Sprinter Travel 75 through a wide electrically operated outward-swinging door aft of the front axle. The passenger compartment has an impressive bus ceiling. There are integrated luggage shelves with side air ducts and LED light rails.
They include ambient lighting. Service sets with adjustable air outlet vents and LED reading lamps are also part of the equipment.
The standard seating consists of six double seats facing the direction of travel on the left and six individual seats in the direction of travel on the right, amounting to 18 passenger seats. On request up to 21 passenger seats and one co-driver’s seat are available. The top-quality 450 mm wide TravelStarXtra (TSX) seats are very familiar from the bestselling Mercedes‑Benz Tourismo touring coach and are available in numerous variants. A further feature of the high level of travel comfort in the Sprinter Travel 75 is the sophisticated heating and climate control: circulating hot-water convectors heat the passenger compartment, as does a hot-water auxiliary heater with a stationary heater function. Also standard is a driver’s air conditioning system with an output of 7 kW and the passenger compartment air conditioning with an output of 11 kW in fresh-air and air-recirculation mode. Refreshment is assured, for on request the minibus has a refrigerator in front of the first seat row on the right.
