We called everything into question when developing the new Actros. One objective was a significant reduction in fuel consumption thanks to BlueEFFICIENCY Power. Another consequence can be seen in the particularly low overall costs through closely meshed services which have been specially tailored to the new Actros, such as the Mercedes-Benz telematics system FleetBoard®, which is included as part of the standard specification. All these measures have a common objective: to increase your profitability.
With up to 6% less fuel consumption than its predecessor, the new Euro V in-line engines puts everything in the shade. The Euro VI engines already optionally available to set new standards – with up to 3% less consumption than their predecessors with a Euro V engine. Through the interplay of these newly developed consumption-reduced engines with a whole host of further innovative solutions the new Actros sets standards where profitability is concerned. Consumption-reduced auxiliary consumers, for instance, also contribute to the significant saving, as does the optimised Mercedes PowerShift 3 automatic gearshift which comes as standard – not to mention the sophisticated aerodynamics.
To better exploit the technical potential of the new Actros, we attach great importance to the increased networking of trucks and services: The "Efficiency Tool" symbolises the various services which have specially tailored to the newly developed Actros, helping to achieve particularly low overall costs and therefore a very profitable overall solution. Examples include the use of state-of-the-art telematics solutions as standard, a comprehensive service contract, favourable terms and conditions for leasing and financing with guaranteed, higher resale values plus consumption-reducing training measures. In everyday terms, this adds up to lower overall costs and more profitability for you – from day one.
