The Mercedes-Benz Atego, Econic, Antos
Progress starts with one step: the Econic concept.
The Econic is available with a choice of extremely fuel efficient Euro VI engines, with power outputs of 220kW (299hp) or 260kW (354hp). With fuel consumption reductions of up to 4%, and AdBlue consumption up to 40% lower, the engines are designed from the ground up for economy, as well as offering the cleanliness demanded by our – and your customers. Massively reduced particulate and NOx emissions are standard – as is lower CO2.
The Econic offers a height adjustable steering wheel, Air-sprung seat for the driver and individual crew seats for an outstanding level of ergonomic workplace comfort.
An Allison 6-speed automatic transmission with new Eco-software is fitted to the Econic as standard. Providing smooth, efficient power transmission and a comfortable shift, the transmission is invaluable for specialist applications such as refuse collection or fire brigade vehicles. Wear-free starting, low speed creep ability, lock-up clutch for excellent fuel consumption and high torque PTOs are all critical requirements, and the Allison gearbox meets them all.
