An overview of the engines.

The modern 6-cylinder diesel engines fitted to the Econic come with either a basic output of 200 kW (272 hp) at 2200 rpm and a maximum torque of 1200 Nm between 1200 and 1600 rpm, or with a top performance of 260 kW (354 hp) at 2200 rpm and a maximum torque of 1400 Nm in the nominal engine speed range between 1200 and 1600 rpm.

Advantages at a glance.

  • Tried-and-tested OM 936 engines with 7.7-litre displacement
  • Particulate emissions and nitrous oxides reduced to a minimum
  • Powerful premium engine brake for greater braking effect and reduced brake wear

As an alternative, the Econic can be equipped with the M936G gas engine. And that makes it an especially environmentally-friendly choice: during the combustion of natural gas, hardly any particulate emissions and soot are released. What's more, combustion of natural gas also produces around 20 percent less CO2. And using biogas even neutralises the CO2 balance sheet entirely. A further decisive advantage is that the gas engine of the Econic NGT runs particularly quietly and efficiently. Thus ensuring the best-possible conditions for daily municipal applications, waste disposal operations and urban logistics tasks.

Advantages at a glance.

  • High-performance and reliable 7.7-litre gas engine with 222 kW (302 hp)
  • At 80 dB(A), it isn't only extremely quiet, it also falls below the legal requirements
  • Weight-optimised steel-composite gas tanks make for particularly high ranges and also allow for increased payload
  • Long service intervals reduce the cost of repairs and maintenance
  • Toll and tax savings as well as a reduced risk of restrictions from entering certain towns
