Mercedes-Benz’s New Sprinter Camper Van Is A Smart Home On Wheels

Jan 16, 2020

Category: Living

Since the release of Mercedes-Benz’ Sprinter van almost a quarter-of-a-century-ago, the utilitarian vehicle has established itself as the premier platform for campers and conversion projects. Now, for 2020, the German marque has further demonstrated the model’s potential with the unveiling of the luxurious and high-tech Marco Polo Camper Van.

First revealed at the Caravanning, Motor, and Tourism Exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, the Marco Polo Camper boasts a plush, well-optioned interior complete with silk beige Lugano folding leather seats, faux ebony trim, fold-up table, large 10.25” in-dash touch-screen, rotating driver’s seat, an elegantly-designed kitchenette, and a pop-up roof bed. Touted as a “smart home on wheels”, the adventure van’s most noteworthy element is undoubtedly its Mercedes-Benz Advanced Control (MBAC) system that allows a host of areas and components to be controlled and /or adjusted via a smartphone app. This includes lowering and raising the pop-up roof, opening and closing the sunroof, regulating the heater or AC, controlling lighting and the van’s premium sound system, plus it provides real-time data for metrics like the van’s battery or water-tank level. And though the Marco Polo van isn’t slated for production, the MBAC system is expected to become available in the coming months.
