The Econic. Taking responsibility.
Towns are growing. As too are the demands placed on mobility, logistics, the environment and quality of life. Our answer to this is a commercial vehicle which is up to the challenge. It is powerful and efficient whilst also delivering the greatest possible safety for all road users. It delivers sustainable solutions to the growing emissions burden in urban areas and makes for optimum working conditions for driver and crew alike.
The Econic takes responsibility. With powerful powertrains, the bodybuilder-friendly truck offers decisively better safety with its unique DirectVision cab featuring panoramic glazing and clever assistance systems.With ergonomic entry and exiting, intuitively arranged instruments and, last but not least, the optionally available natural gas engine, you can enjoy unrestricted access to environmental zones. Looking to the future together.
Active health and safety at work thanks to low entry. On every journey.
Good work starts with a comfortable workplace. And that's exactly how the Econic has been designed – to provide perfect support to the driver.
The low entry is a great example of this: simple entry, comfortable standing room in the cab interior and an inward-opening folding door which allows colleagues to enter and exit the vehicle on the side of the road furthest from the traffic – all of which relieve strain on the driver during their daily work. What's more, an ergonomic seat, intuitively arranged instruments, a steering wheel with multifunction buttons and a clear dashboard all make for health-conscious working conditions.
Individual solutions for every type of operation.
A low or a high cab. Diesel or natural gas. Four different axle variants and wheelbases ranging from 3450 to 5700 mm. The Econic is perfectly suited to the most varied of sectors and tasks. But it wouldn't be a Mercedes-Benz truck if it didn't go one step further in the case of specific requirements. Besides the high-quality vehicles manufactured as part of volume series production, complex bodies and individual solutions to suit your everyday tasks can also be obtained from Mercedes-Benz Custom Tailored Trucks (CTT): this might include anything from displacing a single component, right up to highly-complex axle modifications. Order a system built to the same standards as in series production but which completely fulfils your own criteria.
At home everywhere.
A unique concept which was consistently developed for practical operations: the Econic is a modern, low-entry vehicle capable of tackling the tough challenges a truck must face. It makes work more efficient and is a step ahead of its time – be that for municipal applications, refuse collection and short-radius distribution or even a whole host of other operations.
