Mercedes-Benz is celebrating the production start-up of the new Actros with the special Edition 1 model limited to 400 examples.
The new Actros comes with trail-blazing innovations that are said to immediately pay for themselves. Both company owners and drivers would profit from an ‘unparalleled level’ of efficiency and comfort. Mercedes-Benz celebrated the presentation of its new flagship model at the International Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover with the special ‘Edition 1’ model limited to 400 examples, whose numerous extras offer maximum comfort and safety for the driver. There are also selected design features that give the vehicle a high recognition factor.
The Edition 1 has outstanding safety features that include MirrorCam and Active Brake Assist 5. The Active Drive Assist, which makes semi-automated driving possible, makes a noticeable contribution too. The improved Predictive Powertrain Control not only allows significant fuel savings but also relieves the driver's workload on overland routes. And as in the standard model, the new, intuitively controlled multimedia cockpit brings innovative functionalities into the cab.
Besides the approximate 60 innovations in the new Actros, the ‘Edition 1’ adds numerous special equipment items geared to the driver. These include no less than seven packages:
Both inside and out, this Actros is equipped with extensive optional features that ensure a high recognition factor. For example the ‘Edition 1’ logo in the sun visor and below the model plate. Or the four additional LED long-range headlamps and the exclusive paint finish on the maintenance flap and front-end flap. The MirrorCam in chrome is an alternative to the conventional exterior mirrors, which are also available for the Edition 1. The stainless steel steps are striking when viewed from the sides.
Eye-catching interior features include leather door handles with contrasting seams, leather steering wheel, black leather cockpit and exclusive floor mats. Looking upwards, the roof hatch has ambient lighting in eight colours. The upper bed comes with a bedcover. An all-round curtain – almond beige inside and black outside – ensures stylish privacy. On the co-driver's side, another ‘Edition 1’ logo in polished and brushed aluminium documents the serial number as one of the 400 vehicles.
With its unique design, the ‘Edition 1’ underscores the leading position of the new Actros in the competitive lineup. It is available for all 2 and 3-axle models of the new Actros with GigaSpace and BigSpace cab, both in left and right-hand drive. The cab paintwork is freely selectable and could be adapted to the customer's particular company colours.
