MERCEDES Benz Vans has added drive style monitoring software to all new Sprinter and Vito Tourer vans as standard.
Increasing numbers of customers are using software to monitor their driving standards. Mercedes Benz offers three years’ free usage with models built since May 2019.
In the case of the Sprinter, the Mercedes Pro Connect system can be retro-fitted remotely, using over-the-air updates.
Functionality includes analysis of acceleration, coasting, anticipation, coasting, and smooth driving. These can be fed back to improve behaviour whilst driving, maximizing safe practices, and increasing longevity of parts.
Steve Bridge, Managing Director at Mercedes-Benz Vans, said:
“Keeping businesses moving is our priority, and with our new drive style monitoring solution software included as standard, company owners and vehicle managers can spend less time worrying about the vans and drivers, and more time therefore focused on their business and customers.”
