The new Econic from Mercedes-Benz is something really rather special. It’s the ultimate city truck – there’s nothing better out there for urban distribution, city and airport logistics and municipal waste purposes.
Two major themes have guided its development: your profit margin, and sheer usability for your drivers and crews.
First off, it’s extremely fuel-efficient, with fuel consumption cut by 4% and AdBlue by up to 40%. Environmentally friendly too: its BlueEFFICIENCY Power engines cut emissions by up to 90% over previous Euro V engines, and they comply with Euro VI standards. Longer maintenance intervals and reduced repair costs – coupled with Sparshatts of Kent’s 24-hour truck inspection and service depots – mean more use for your money and less time off the road. Pretty much what you’d hope for from the reliability and quality assurance of a Mercedes-Benz truck.
Secondly, your drivers and crew are going to love it. A powerful range of engines, short wheelbase for major manoeuvrability, outstanding visibility through its panoramic window and a host of visual aids. And because its frame sits low – all that climbing in and out of the cab all day takes much less effort. So it’s easy on the back and joints – and on your occupational and health & safety managers. Of course, Mercedes-Benz is also the master of interior ergonomics, so multifunction steering wheels, thoroughly thoughtful cockpit arrangement, stacks of space and stowage all feature.
But what about the job you want it to do?
The new Econic is a very versatile truck. It’ll take a front-axle load of 8 tonnes and a maximum vehicle weight of up to 26 tonnes. Its low frame, range of chassis versions and excellent body-mounting features mean you can put it to work in all sorts of ways. Little surprise that we see orders from local authorities, waste and recycling companies, airports, fire and rescue services, materials and FMCG light distribution and logistics firms.
And all that is just a taster of what’s possible when you order the new Econic. Download the brochure and call our friendly team for a no-obligation chat about your needs. We’ll find you exactly the right truck to make your business work more economically and efficiently.
