Introducing Mercedes-Benz completely redeveloped Actros long distance transport

BERLIN - September 5, 2018: From the front apron and the radiator grille right up to the roof: the striking exterior design with its specific longdistance transport style also lends the newly developed Actros a new dimension in visual terms, whilst documenting its inner strengths to impressive effect. Take, for example, the light and friendly ambience and the clear distinction between the workplace and the living area. With its cabs geared to various operating profiles the new Actros opens up hitherto unattained dimensions of working, living and sleeping in long-distance transport. All 2,500 mm wide cabs come with a level floor as standard. The headroom between the seats is as much as 2.13 m. What’s more, there is considerably more room and stowage space than in the predecessor model. Depending on their intended end use, the 2,300 mm wide cabs can optionally be fitted with a level floor throughout or with an engine tunnel in two different heights.

The new Actros will be unveiled today in a LIVE Internet broadcast that can be watched in its entirety right here on at 12:30PM New York time, 9:30AM Los Angeles time.

The new dimension of economy

In order to make the new Actros a highly economical truck it has been equipped with many innovative and consumption-reducing features, and with particularly frugal engines: the Euro V model has up to 7 percent lower consumption than its predecessor. In addition to Euro V and EEV*, the new Actros is one of the first vehicles on the market with engines which meet the requirements of Euro VI as standard – giving a consumption advantage of up to 5 percent over the Euro V model. And now a brand new feature is available: Predictive Powertrain Control, an innovative system which takes into account the road ahead when changing gear, allowing for any inclines, and in so doing can reduce consumption by as much as a further 5 percent. Alongside the innovative technology on board the new Actros, services tailored to your needs also help to keep overall costs particularly low.

All measures which result in fewer costs and increased profit.

* Euro V and EEV only available for the 310 kW, 330 kW and 375 kW models.
