The introduction of the extended ESP package for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter from January 2012 will improve brake performance in critical situations and enhance the safety of passengers and other road users. ADAPTIVE ESP 9i replaces the current ADAPTIVE ESP 8.1.
Diane Tarr, General Manager, Mercedes-Benz vans said “This is further proof that safety is one of the fundamental values of the Mercedes-Benz brand. We regard a van as a workplace and this enhancement of the ESP system is an important contribution to the OH&S of the driver’s worik environment. The new ESP 9i takes the vehicle load into account and will stabilise the vehicle with individually modulated intervention action. This new ESP system will also intervene selectively if a trailer begins to sway, thus helping drivers to stabilise their vehicle and trailer combination. “
