Just like the workplaces of truck drivers, the evolution of the Transporter Cockpit reflects the technical progress made over decades. The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter demonstrates in a special way how efficiently and ergonomically drivers and passengers can perform their tasks and feel comfortable today. Keyless start, powerful air conditioning, back-friendly seats and the optional 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and the MBUX multimedia system are just a few of the details that make the Sprinter's everyday life easier for its users. The first delivery van driver's seats, on the other hand, still resembled more of a coach box, and similar to horse-drawn carriages, the ancestors of today's light commercial vehicles also drove themselves. Only slowly did the Spartan outdoor workplace develop into the modern cockpit with numerous comfort features from the passenger car sector.
