It was trialled, among other places, at the Olympic Games in Munich. Yet its output, range and energy costs meant it was not yet ready for everyday use.Plant Düsseldorf - Roof assembly, main lineMercedes-Benz Sprinter 2 (2006-2013), exteriorRange (LTR) Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (from 2013); Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2 (2006-2013); Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 1 (1995-2006); Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 1 (1995-2006)Built until 1903, the “Daimler business vehicles” had a maximum output of 8.8 kW.Combination delivery vehicle of 1896: Carl Benz gradually began converting his passenger cars to vans.For a short time the Berlin-Marienfelde plant of Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft produced vans, before specialising in truck assembly from 1905 onwards.Daimler built small runabouts like this U 1 T panel van (1913) with a one-tonne payload from 1897.The L 1 was built from 1926 to 1928 and with a panel body could also serve as a van.With its long front overhang, the racing car transporter  (1955) had a somewhat cheeky appearance.Mercedes-Benz L 319 (1956 to 1968): the positioning of the front axle so far forward made the access exceptionally low.Daimler-Benz would produce well over 100,000 units of the new van L 319.The German postal service welcomed the new large-capacity vans from Düsseldorf (from 1967) with open arms.The engine of the short-nosed L 406 (1967-1986) model kept its appearance in the cab interior to a minimum.The new Düsseldorf vans (1967-1986) soon enjoyed a virtual monopoly among ambulances and rescue vehicles.The L 406 D – pictured here with pickup body – also proved an ideal vehicle for trade use.The Düsseldorf van (1967-1986) also became a familiar sight as a mobile savings bank travelling between villages.The T2 succeeded the first generation of large-capacity vans in 1986.From 1973 gross vehicle weight was limited to 6.5 tonnes (the photo shows a 613 D).In 1970 a new sibling arrives in the shape of the L 206.As the Vario (from 11996), the large-capacity van now covered a wider spectrum than ever.The angular MB 100 light van, introduced in 1987, was of Spanish provenance.The new light vans in the TN series arrived in 1977.
