One year later, in 1970, Daimler-Benz took over Hanomag-Henschel. The van was now also offered as a Mercedes-Benz model. The Hanomag-Henschel and the Mercedes models were largely identical except for logos, brand, and type designations (" badge engineering "), but differences exist in technical details, eg. the brakes.
