The true cost of a vehicle goes well beyond the sticker price. Fuel costs, maintenance costs, the vehicle’s retained value and other items can all affect your bottom line down the road. Using independent research by Vincentric,™* this information shows the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a Mercedes-Benz Van versus its closest competition. Of course, with the lowest TCO in its class, the competition really isn’t all that close.
Go further on less.
Minimizing fuel expenses is essential for your business. The Metris’ unique size provides you with more space to carry what you need, and still has one of the lowest fuel consumption costs of comparable large and small vans. In fact, its incredibly fuel-efficient powertrain costs an average of 17 cents / km, saving you up to 25% when compared to the competition – that’s a savings of over $13,752 over 5 years.**
Cargo Volume: The Metris has a cargo volume 36% larger than the competition 1
Payload Capacity: The Metris has a load-bearing capacity 55% larger than the competition 2
Born to run.
Less time in the shop and more time on the road means smooth running for your business. With a best- in-class maintenance interval of up to 25,000 kilometres, the Metris stays on the job longer than its competitors. And with dealers all across Canada providing dedicated quality care, when your vehicle does need service, it will be in, out, and back to work in no time.
Get more van and more value.
As a business owner, you understand the value of maximum return on minimum expense. Delivering 36% more cargo volume than its competitors, the Mercedes-Benz Metris depreciates at a remarkably low rate. As Canada’s only mid-size commercial vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz Metris offers a perfect balance of value and versatility.
Fuel costs are rising. For some more than others.
Fuel cost is the single-highest operating expense a vehicle incurs. Lucky for your business, the Mercedes- Benz Sprinter has the lowest fuel consumption of any vehicle in its class. Our powerful diesel engine saves you up to over 40% when compared to our competitors’s gasoline-powered vehicles. And with fuel costs averaging 15 cents / km, the Sprinter can reduce fuel costs by up to $4,948 per 50,000 km, a remarkable savings of over $24,744 over 5 years.**
A van shouldn’t get days off.
Your van should be on the job helping your business make money, so relying on it to run smoothly when you need it is a priority. With an extended maintenance interval of up to 30,000 kilometres, your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will spend more time on the road and less time on a hoist. And with dealers all across Canada providing dedicated quality care, when your vehicle does need service, it will be in, out, and back to work in no time.
Cargo isn’t the only thing it holds.
One element of TCO that’s typically overlooked doesn’t have anything to do with how much a vehicle costs you. It has to do with how much it’s worth. A van that retains value puts more money in your pocket at the end of its service life. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter depreciates at a much lower rate than that of its competition, commanding a higher resale value than any commercial vehicle in its class. Maximum return with minimum expense. That’s something every business person values.
