The new Econic delivers a range of innovative solutions that significantly reduces emissions and increases efficiency. That's what BlueEFFICIENCY Power stands for. Under this brand name, Mercedes-Benz brings together technologies that contribute towards sustainability, environmental compatibility, CO₂ reduction and fuel efficiency. Compliance with the new Euro VI exhaust gas standard is only a small part of it. The basis for attaining the ambitious goals involved with BlueEFFICIENCY Power is laid by a new drivetrain with efficient diesel engines, an automatic transmission with new Eco software and further optimised technical solutions such as the new weight-optimised axle location. High reliability, lower downtimes, longer maintenance intervals and a reduction of repair and maintenance costs make the Econic even more economically-efficient.
The new engine generation enables a fuel consumption reduction of up to 4 percent. In spite of the increased vehicle weight due to the additional Euro VI components, weight optimising measures make it possible to keep the payload constant.
