The new Sprinter diesel engines will for the moment only be available for vehicles with commercial vehicle registration in countries in which exhaust gas standard Euro 5 applies. For vehicles registered as passenger cars or compliant with EU 4 Gr. III, and for vehicles registered as trucks outside Europe, only the heretofore available diesel engines will continue to be offered.
EEV certification is expected to be available from the 3rd quarter 2009. The monovalent natural gas drive NGT is also due to be available from the 3rd quarter 2009.
