The new Atego introduces an array of technical measures designed for particularly economical operations in the building materials industry. This means low fuel consumption. And low overall operating costs – throughout the vehicle’s useful life.
To make your transport operations in the building materials industry even more cost-effective and profitable, the new Atego has been designed with a special emphasis on economy.
Its new engines, which already comply with the Euro VI emissions standard scheduled for introduction in 2014, are a case in point. These fuel-efficient 4- and 6-cylinder in-line engines combine particularly low fuel consumption with a high level of reliability. Other features contributing towards low fuel consumption are fuel-efficient auxiliary consumers, the optionally available Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift system and optimised powertrain configurations. FleetBoard® EcoSupport is additionally integrated in the instrument cluster as standard to support the driver in maintaining a fuel-efficient style of driving. Longer maintenance intervals, the long service lives of many components and the Atego’s repair- and maintenance-friendly design also help to keep overall operating costs low.
Another attribute of the new Atego that helps to cut costs from the outset is its further enhanced body-mounting ability. The standard-fit electronic brake system with ABS, acceleration skid control and hill holder if fitted with Mercedes PowerShift 3 provides for a high level of efficiency during braking, too.*
Beyond this standard equipment, optionally available efficiency-enhancing Mercedes-Benz services such as FleetBoard® also help to lower costs and boost profitability in the building materials industry by ensuring that the new Atego remains a by-word for added efficiency – both today and into the future.
