Mercedes-Benz India new Actros 4841K truck launched
Mercedes-Benz India launches its new, third-generation Mercedes-Benz Actros 4841K truck priced Rs 65 lakhs. The Mercedes-Benz Actros is the largest selling truck model worldwide. The New Actros 4841K takes these aspects to an even higher level thus setting new standards in the heavy duty truck segment in India.
“Over 600,000 Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks have been sold world-wide since its inception in 1996 and the Actros continues to remain one of the most trusted brands in the heavy tonnage applications segment. The Actros has also been featured in Guinness Book of World Records as ‘The most fuel efficient Truck’ indicating that this robust high-tonnage carrier delivers not just in terms of capabilities but also offers optimized returns to customers. The New Mercedes-Benz Actros will be a valuable partner for the vibrant Indian mining and infrastructure operators and we have high expectations from this product in India”, said Dr. Wilfried Aulbur, Managing Director and CEO of Mercedes-Benz India.
The new Mercedes-Benz Actros has both an emotive and practical design. The most eye-catching improvement in the design is the three-millimetre-thick, pressure-tight guard plate for the radiator and engine. This stainless steel component reduces damage in the
region of the radiator and engine, while accentuating the powerful styling of the new mining Actros. Also, thanks to the additional protective parts, operators can avoid expensive repairs and at the same time reduce downtimes of their trucks.
The well thought-out interior of the Actros satisfies a whole range of driver needs as standard. Comfortable, ergonomically designed seats, the ergonomic cockpit with multifunction steering wheel, and the Telligent gearshift are just some of the features designed to ease the strain of work in the mining industry. In increasingly rough and steep terrains, automated gearshifts are a further contribution to greater safety.
In terms of safety, the Actros is equipped with Telligent braking system with ABS and ASR improving the handling and driving safety. The Active Brake Assist and Hill Holder enable faster braking response and thus considerably shorten braking distance in the event of danger. The extensive use of sharp-corner-free design and fragmentation-resistant, break-resistant and flame-retardant materials effectively reduces the damage to drivers in the case of an accident.
Now, Actros drivers can enjoy the safety and convenience of a feature previously confined to cars: the multifunction steering wheel and the Driver Information System. All these various control and driver assist systems effectively ensure the safety of driver, vehicle and cargo during transportation. The Telligent Engine System uniquely combines economy with ecology by enabling the optimum fuel injection to make the combustion cleaner, more efficient and capable of delivering increased power.
