Mercedes - VW Partnership may be coming to an end!
 
As published here

We all know that with the exception the engines, transmissions and esthetical differences Crafter and Sprinter are otherwise the same chassis.

"VW wants to end cooperation with Mercedes commercial vehicles"

"With the truck manufacturer MAN Wolfsburg could have an internal family alternative".

"The ongoing negotiations on the future of reaching by 2016 at the latest"

It'll be good to have another alternative, I wonder if VW will go for a wider body to take sales from Seval.

Yes I would go for a VW as apposed to the Fiat. We had a Swift Royal 635 on a VW LT chassis on a 1996 plate, had the 5 cyl. engine, sweet as a nut around Europe.

The more choice the better, in the USA and Canada the Merc Sprinter is also a Dodge! Me too for a VW over a Fiat.

Iveco engined van for me every time.

I have seen some Crafters badged as MAN in Africa.

Hope the parts are not MAN priced, their trucks are very expensive spares wise.

Dodge branding now drooped in North America. They are now badged Mercedes and there is a new group of dealerships part of MBUSA.

Freight liner branding of Sprinter in Canada is going too.
