The Safety Of A Mercedes-Benz Van
It has been Mercedes-Benz’s mission to create a safe and reliable commercial van for business owners all around the world. Mercedes-Benz is constantly increasing the safety of its star-branded vans even further with the aid of in-house accident research.
The Van Accident Research unit was reorganized in the summer of 2015. The unit now has its headquarters at Daimler AG’s Untertürkheim plant. There, the engineers examine selected accidents in which Mercedes-Benz vans have been involved. The results are fed directly back into vehicle development, thus helping to make Mercedes-Benz vans even safer.
“We experience first-hand just how important the work we do here is. Often we talk to people who, thanks to the safety technology, have emerged from serious accidents in good shape, and based on their experience immediately order their next van from Mercedes-Benz,” explains Vera Hertler, a development engineer involved in setting up the Van Accident Research unit. As technology continues to expand and advance, so will Mercedes-Benz Vans.
