Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK is showcasing its market-leading products and services at the Commercial Motor Show 2020.

The jewel in the crown for Mercedes-Benz Trucks is the new Actros. Show attendees can find out why the truck was crowned International Truck of the Year 2020, and learn about its pioneering innovations, including MirrorCam, Multimedia Cockpit, Enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control, Active Brake Assist 5 and Active Drive Assist.

These features increase driver comfort, business efficiency and safety, all of which will be in the spotlight at the show. Both the new Actros and the new Arocs are capable of obtaining four-star ratings under the Direct Vision Standard, subject to specification, and this will be highlighted at the show.

Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz Econic has also been awarded a five-star rating by Transport for London, meaning no additional equipment is required to obtain a 10 year HGV Safety Permit.

eMobility is set to be a hot topic at the show, and Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK’s parent – Daimler Trucks – leads the way in this area. It was the first manufacturer to offer a series-production all-electric 7.5-tonner – the FUSO eCanter, which has been in operation by several UK customerssince 2018. Furthermore, the Mercedes-Benz eActros and eEconic are on the way – Mercedes-Benz Trucks will be detailing its electric truck plans at the show.

The manufacturer is committed to keeping businesses connected and moving, so experts from its Connectivity and Customer Service teams will be on hand to discuss Fleetboard, Mercedes-Benz Uptime, the Truck App Portal and Authorised Repairer network. A Tech Talk at the show will give insight into an innovative partnership with Continental, while there will also be a competition running to win a driving experience at Mercedes-Benz World.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK head of product and marketing Ross Paterson said: “We’re delighted to be exhibiting at this brand-new event for the commercial road transport industry. This innovative new platform fits perfectly with our market-leading products and technologically advanced services, and we hope to speak to plenty of attendees over the course of the three days.”
