No one trusts to take a Mercedes to a construction site, huh? They're too busy with their Expresses, Econolines and Savanas.

Did you look at the attached link? A lot of your questions are answered there. The Sprinter is doing fine and sells four times as well as the Metris. Most buyers felt the Metris was too expensive for their needs and the interiors too cheap for a Mercedes-Benz. The main reason is that they used a Nissan engine that Nissan is discontinuing. They don't have a replacement engine for North America. The Sprinter also offers that engine plus a diesel. They are just going to sell the diesel until they release an all electric Sprinter. The other engines that Europe offers on the Vito are not certified in the US.

I know the Sprinter is selling well, I assumed the Metris wasn't as it was in the same segment as those vans above, and people weren't used to a luxury car maker's vehicle there.

BTW, very interesting that Metrises have body-colored bumpers even as Vitos. In Europe the Vito as the workhorse has basic equipment and only unpainted bumpers, while the V-Class is the family van with painted bumpers, multimedia capability and luxurious equipment.

And now it's the Ford Transit Connect for North America, gone by the end of 2023. They were planning on moving production to Mexico, but that's been scrapped to make way for an electric Transit instead. The TC will become an Euro-exclusive vehicle.

Dead: Ram ProMaster City (the American version of the Fiat Doblo)

And now the last of the small cargo vans sold in the US is being killed, the Ram ProMaster City is being discontinued at the end of the current model year (really early 2023 to fill orders).

They say the small vans advantage was the better gas mileage and now with electric vans coming, that advantage is done. That's why all five models that were sold here are now dead.
