Stuttgart / São Paulo – 72 especially reconstructed Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will help improving disabled people’s everyday lives in São Paulo. The vehicles were delivered to the city council’s door-to-door transportation service. With its high roof and roomieness the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter offers ample space for people who depend on the wheelchair. The large sliding door makes getting in and out of the transporter easier thanks to a customized hydraulic ramp. The Sprinter’s maneuverability and agility are particularly helpful to drivers who have to pilot the vehicles safely through the narrow streets and alleys of São Paulo.
