Mercedes-Benz is providing DHL Express Mexico with Sprinter compressed natural gas (CNG)-gasoline bifuel vehicles. DHL previously said it is satisfied with the performance of the 15 MB Sprinter model, which first was deployed in November in Mexico City. The vans are part of a 218-vehicle delivery from the auto manufacturer’s Mexico arm, including 181 Sprinters, 32 Vito vans and five Smart cars. DHL reported its overall investment was about US$10.5 million. The four-cylinder, 1.8-liter natural gas engines represent “the first natural gas-powered Sprinter fleet in the Americas,” according to DHL.
