Reduced fuel consumption

Reduced fuel consumption

The Arocs and Atego make extremely efficient use of fuel.

In the Atego you have vehicles which use fuel extremely efficiently. Plus: substantial additional fuel savings are possible through the combination of vehicle technology and services such as our driver training. An accomplished driver can make a good truck even better.

The design of the Atego has been optimised right down to the smallest detail in order to reduce wind resistance. From the bumper through the corner panels to the roof – everything con­tributes to reduced drag and so to lower fuel consumption. Aerodynamic detachable body parts also play a role in cutting consumption. Along with the tyre pressure monitoring system, super-wide single tyres63 are available on the drive axle to reduce rolling resistance and fuel consumption, too.

Advantages at a glance.

  • Complete Euro VI engine range: Two displacement classes, seven output ratings from 115 kW (156 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp)
  • Low consumption as a result of: economical, efficient engines, short shift times and the “economy” and “fleet” driving programs designed to reduce fuel consumption
  • Job-matched rear-axle ratios and transmissions
  • Fuel-efficient auxiliary consumers
  • Sophisticated aerodynamics
  • Tyre pressure monitoring system.

A broad selection of job-matched rear axle ratios and transmissions also contributes to reduced fuel consumption. What's more, short shift times and driving programs also support an economical driving style. Economical ancillary consumers, such as the on-demand compressed-air control system and the power steering pump also contribute to low fuel consumption.

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).
