Key player and workhorse – the new Sprinter is more than a vehicle: it's a true partner you can always rely on to support you all the way when there's a job to be done. This pioneering van is also right up to date in the all-important domains of fuel consumption and emissions – thanks to BlueTEC Blue-EFFICIENCY technology. Thanks to this, the Sprinter already complies with the Euro VI emissions standard while benefiting from an engine optimised with regard to performance and fuel consumption.
SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) exhaust gas aftertreatment reduces NOX emissions by feeding the exhaust gases through a catalytic converter, where they are mixed with the water-based additive AdBlue®. During this process, nitrous oxides are converted into nitrogen and water. The result is compliance with the strict EuroVI emissions standards.
You will only notice the fact that your vehicle is equipped with BlueTEC, one of the most advanced exhaust technologies there is, because of the separate filler neck for the AdBlue® additive. Its 18-litre capacity ensures that AdBlue® only has to be added about every third time the tank is filled up with diesel fuel.
