The Mercedes Benz Econic truck was specially designed for consolidated freight transport and short-radius distribrution with the low-floor concept its distinguishing feature. This specialist truck comes standard with everything needed for intensive disposal work. The Econic provides the highest standards of ergonomics and comfort with its low access height, level cab floor and low frame.

Special trucks like the Econic have great demands placed on the engine with stop-and-go traffic and the frequent use of a power take-off. The Econic with gas drive system meets the demanding ECE R110 certification specification and the stringent EEV emissions. The natural gas variant is particularly quiet and fuel-efficient, showing just how economical environmental protection can be.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

The Econic offers two different variants – a high-roof and a low-roof cab. Both variants meet the European crash test standard, ECE R29/2.
