Driving through the morning rush hour, turning into tight residential streets packed full of parked cars, rapid emptying of bins, and then moving on to the next location. Waste disposal is an important aspect of the modern closed-loop economy. It is hard work and requires great care, attention and power. Which is why the Dual Control Econic has been specifically designed for Australia to make life easier. Getting in and out is gentle on the back. The modern cockpit, innovative assistance systems and the expanded field of vision through the panoramic glazing make for both greater driving comfort and improved safety.
