According to http://carsalesbase.com/us-car-sales...benz-sprinter/, MB sold just under 28,000 Sprinters in 2017 in the US.

The articles I read say the they cut the ribbon on the new factory today. Hereís the press release https://www.media.mbusa.com/releases...inter-customer

I might have to become an Amazon contractor to get my hands on one of the new ones...

3rd generation? Wonder what fuel source they chose, or is that all part of the "1700 possible configurations" available for a new Sprinter? Let the delivery program partners choose? They mentioned an eSprinter as well in one of the articles I read recently.

Remember, they are talking about all Sprinter configurations, not just the cutaway chassis. Winnebago will most likely remain their number one customer for that chassis.

How many Sprinter based units does WBGO build in a year?

Winnebago took over the top spot for class B sales in 2015, as well. I'm not sure if they still hold top spot. That would split the types of vans they would need to source between the Transit, Sprinter, and Promaster. I can't find any specific numbers anywhere, but they would be buying some Sprinter vans to make the ERAs. Maybe the Travato and Paseo sell better than the ERA?
