Safe on construction sites and the streets of Berlin in an Econic cement mixer.
A building is only as stable as its foundations. That is undisputed in the construction sector, and in this case it also applies to the commercial vehicles used. Because wherever a diverse range of tasks are required, trucks with particularly flexible equipment are needed. And that's where the Econic as a base vehicle is right on cue.
The body options for the special truck are virtually unlimited: whether as a concrete mixer, three-way tipper or skip lorry, thanks to its DirectVision design, the Econic isn't just a specialist for inner-city and urban traffic, it's also a great all-rounder there too. An Econic as a cement mixer is just providing impressive proof of this in the busy streets of Berlin.
Preventing dangerous situations in inner-city traffic.
Cars, motorbikes, cyclists, pedestrians and now even electric scooters: the traffic on the capital's roads is becoming increasingly cramped and confusing. However, the Mercedes-Benz Econic is tailor-made for this kind of operation: with its low-positioned "DirectVision" cab it is designed so that the driver is at eye level with pedestrians and cyclists.
In combination with the generously glazed driver's cab and the fully-glazed co-driver's folding door, there is always the possibility of eye contact with other road users. This direct view has been proven to be a decisive safety feature. The risk of accidents when turning into a different road is thus minimised, also in connection with the optionally available Sideguard Assist function.
