Mercedes-Benz and FUSO Trucks UK are demonstrating continued future thinking under the new value proposition “Road Efficiency” under the three pillars of Low Total Costs through fuel efficiencies, Greater Safety through advanced safety technologies and Maximised Use with improved vehicle connectivity and downtime response.
Mercedes-Benz Econic, a class leader in safety and manoeuvrability with its Direct Vision cab, is the ideal truck for cities. Known predominantly in the industry for its refuse collection, the Econic is making waves in built up urban areas from uses in the construction sector, to distribution and delivery.
The FUSO Canter, sold and serviced through the Mercedes-Benz Dealer Network, opens the doors to the future of business in cities, with vehicles covering 3.5-tonne to 8.5-tonnes including the efficient 7.5t Eco Hybrid. The FUSO Canter self-charging Eco Hybrid is perfect for making the most of congested city traffic. Under way, the truck sets off in electric mode and after it reaches 6mph, the diesel engine kicks in. Energy is stored in the battery every time the user slows down below 6mph or brakes. The stored energy during this period then helps the driver accelerate, consuming less fuel and improving driver efficiency.
