Reduced fuel consumption

Reduced fuel consumption

Never be satisfied with less. Except when it comes to fuel consumption.

The Atego makes extremely efficient use of fuel. Because the lower the fuel consumption, the lower the overall costs.

The design of the Atego has been optimised right down to the finest details in order to reduce wind resistance. From the bumper via the corner panelling to the roof – everything contributes to a low level of aerodynamic drag and thus to reduced fuel consumption. Optionally available aerodynamic body parts also reduce fuel consumption.

Advantages at a glance.

  • Economical, reliable Euro VI engines in two displacement classes and seven output ratings from 115 kW (156 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp)
  • High-pressure injection at up to 2400 bar
  • Energy-optimised auxiliary consumers
  • Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift as standard with job-matched drive programs plus driving modes and additional functions which can be selected as required
  • Fuel-efficient powertrain configurations for efficient power transmission
  • Optimised aerodynamics

The Atego is equipped with the economy drive program as standard. This comprises various driving modes which enable precise and simple handling and a fuel-efficient driving style in virtually any driving situation. Optionally, the power drive program is also available.

Fleetboard offers individual telematics solutions to maximise utilisation of your vehicles' capacity and the efficiency of your fleet. You have everything under control – everywhere and at all times. The basis for these services is provided by the Truck Data Centre vehicle computer, which is optionally available ex factory.

Engine output range. The economical Euro VI engines for the Atego are available in two displacement classes and with seven power output ratings, from 115 kW (156 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp).

All Euro VI engines boast low fuel consumption. With the Atego's 4- and 6-cylinder inline engines, measures such as high-pressure injection at a pressure of up to 2400 bar and cooled exhaust gas recirculation contribute to low fuel consumption while at the same time supporting combustion with low particulate emissions, for example.

Various 6-, 8- and 9-speed transmissions and fuel-saving hypoid axles with various gear ratios are available for the Atego to ensure efficient power transmission from engine to road. The standard-specification Mercedes PowerShift 3 automatic gearshift also offers high efficiency: with its optimised shift strategy and job-matched drive programs, it enables a self-assured, anticipatory driving style in virtually any driving situation.
