Moreover, Mercedes also shows its vans, including two Vitos and one Sprinter. Speaking of the two Vito vans, one is a Tourer, serves as radio patrol vehicle duty and the other, coming with all-wheel drive, is supposed to serve customs departments. Meanwhile, a Sprinter is a personnel carrier that has been admired by European heist movie audiences.
The car manufacturer also brought a heavy-duty truck, the 8-wheeled Arocs 3251 L 8X4. This truck is able to perform logistical assignments, dismantle obstacles, launch heavy boats and place protective barriers. It’s also designed to be capable of carrying out high-altitude rescue, but it is advisable to avoid the type of mountaintop trouble which requires such heavy cavalry.
