A host of measures all aimed at greater efficiency

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.
