Particularly pleasing is the increase in the number of Econic vehicles being used in short-radius distribution applications. The truck combines great manoeuvrability with the transport capabilities of a heavy truck, as well as the ergonomics of a low-floor vehicle with the road-friendliness of full air suspension. Add to that the advantages of a drive system with low emissions. The Econic with its quiet and clean CNG/LNG drive is optimal for city logistics as well as in zones where access restrictions apply around the clock as well as on weekends.
Additionally, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has long been synonymous for vans with a gross permissible vehicle weight of around 3.5 tonnes. Available in four different lengths, three heights and with gross vehicle weight ratings between 3.0 and 5.0 t, the Sprinter is a real all-rounder, be it as a panel van, crewbus, platform, tipper or chassis variant. The Sprinter NGT with natural gas drive covers the segment of low-emission and economic alternative drive technologies. The basis for this vehicles is the Sprinter with 115 kW (156 hp) four-cylinder petrol engine.
Eight Sprinter models will be on show in Hanover, included the low-emissions Sprinter 316 NGT panel van, which runs on environmentally friendly natural gas.
