Because every drop is precious

Fuel consumption plays a decisive role when it comes to economic success. That's why for many years now, we have been working at full speed on the development of particularly sustainable transportation solutions at Mercedes-Benz Trucks, solutions that will both benefit your finances and contribute to lower CO2 emissions.

At Mercedes-Benz Trucks this philosophy has a name: BlueTecEco. As a package of measures targeting efficient transport solutions, BlueTecEco helps to save fuel in daily operations. In addition to a vehicle configuration perfectly aligned with each application, and industry-strength technology such as fuel-saving BlueTEC® 5 engines and the engine start/stop system* (optionally available for the Atego in conjunction with manual transmission), BlueTecEco includes an extensive range of services. Test runs have demonstrated that 40% of fuel consumption is accounted for by external factors such as driving style, traffic conditions, vehicle configuration/maintenance and topography.

To maximise the potential of your Atego, we offer individual consultation, training, seminars, practice-oriented courses and services such as FleetBoard®. Through the ongoing optimisation of our trucks, we have lowered fuel consumption by up to 30% over the past 40 years. And in the future we will continue to do everything to further reduce fuel consumption by implementing application-based solutions.
