At Mercedes-Benz Trucks, the whole topic of overall economy is given close attention. Investment, fuel consumption, maintenance and repairs all have an impact on your revenue, as does the vehicle's residual value. During the entire service life of your vehicle, the cost of fuel will account for about 50-60% of driving-related expenses. For some years now, the Actros has been the undisputed leader where profitability is concerned, and it remains so today. Mercedes-Benz Trucks is continually developing new fuel-saving technologies, such as the innovative Predictive Powertrain Control (PPC) assistance system, which sees the automatic transmission equipped with a driving mode which adapts to suit the prevailing topography.
The Actros with Euro VI engine makes a real contribution to reducing fuel consumption. The new Actros has proved in numerous fuel consumption tests that it is up to 9% more economical than its competitors. Together with the Fleetboard telematics system and a more economical driving style, you can reduce fuel consumption by up to 15%.
In the Mercedes-Benz Trucks Fuel Challenger we can demonstrate that the Actros is an extremely efficient truck in comparison with its competitors. Daimler's Fleetboard telematics-aided online services enable us to prove this objectively. With its variety of services, Fleetboard enables optimised vehicle, driver and transport management.
