We have always promised you low total costs – and kept our promise: with low fuel consumption costs, low repair and maintenance costs, attractive leasing and financing conditions and, not least, high residual values, investing in a Mercedes-Benz truck certainly pays. Now we are promising you even more comprehensive efficiency. The new approach is called RoadEfficiency. In concrete terms it encompasses two further promises: greater safety and maximised use.
In short: RoadEfficiency is all about low total costs, greater safety and maximised use – and we will continue to offer innovative solutions to meet these goals. Because efficiency is the sum of the details.
This is the first pillar of Road Efficiency and a promise that the new Mercedes-Benz Actros will have a lower fuel consumption that its predecessor. This is thanks to further optimised aerodynamics and enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control. The Actros continues to underline its leading role: in over 2,000 "Fuel Challenges" it has won more than 90% - with a consumption advantage of around 10%* vs a competitor.
This is the second pillar of Road Effiency. Thanks assistance systems such as the now standard Active Brake Assist 5, the optionally available Active Drive Assist or the new MirrorCam, the driver is noticeably relieved of stress and safety is significantly increased. Safe trucks are not just an important development for all road users - they're also more efficient, because they are less often put out of action by accidents, relieving the driver's workload. This is why we have been focusing on the development of innovative safety assistance systems for over 45 years.
The third pillar of Road Efficiency comprises the service innovation Mercedes-Benz Uptime and other pioneering advantages of the new Actros, in order to increase truck efficiency. With Mercedes-Benz Uptiome, we are pursuing a clear objective; to permanently minimise unscheduled vehicle downtime and make repairs predictable - thereby, further increasing your vehicle availabilty.
