Our declared objectives: lower fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.
The way to achieve this: BlueTecEco – a raft of measures aimed at injecting more economy and ecology into transportation.
A further milestone: the new Atego with hybrid drive.
Mercedes-Benz has long been committed to sustainable solutions that help to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. As a result of this dedication, we have succeeded in reducing fuel consumption by around 30% in the last 40 years.
Some of the major reasons behind this success:
• Technological developments such as BlueTec®, the SCR diesel technology from Mercedes-Benz, and the engine start/stop systems.
• BlueTecEco helps to reduce fuel consumption by offering a comprehensive programme of advice, training and seminars.
• The new Atego BlueTec® Hybrid has been developed with customary high levels of reliability and cost-effectiveness. It has a new front end, a wealth of new equipment and appointments that enhance ride comfort and workplace comfort, and a drive system that points the way ahead for short-radius distribution.
