    Very interesting!?
    But not much use out here. Unless you want to micromanage your folks.
    Reading between the lines you see the effort to create "their system" which would require dedicated MB assets (containers, scanners etc) & logistics (software etc) = more money for MB & again at a premium cost.

      I've been seeing pics and hearing and knowing about these things for a while now. I just bought a new 2017 and by the time this wears out, these new styles and new motors will have been out for a while!

      Yeah despite my sarcasm I am interested in the gas model.
      Late 2018 I believe was stated.

      I avoided the PM for seating & engine reliability. Yet this transit has its own toe-nail fungus (guibo).
      Driving almost 50 yrs I've never seen an axle go bad (bearing & seals), that didn't have the crap raced (beat) out of it????

      I'm always in the hunt for reliable & steady performance (quality). Regardless who makes it. Alas these days it's like hunting for water in a desert.
