Top-spec Mercedes Gigaspace graces Euro Commercials demo fleet

Mercedes-Benz dealer Euro Commercials has put a top-spec Mercedes-Benz Actros 2563 GigaSpace on its demonstrator fleet.

Powered by a 15.6-litre straight-6, which produces 620hp, the Actros is also fitted with a considerable amount of options including the fuel-saving Predictive Powertrain Control (PPC) and a Mercedes-Benz Safety Pack that features Active Brake Assist 4 that includes pedestrian recognition capability, as well as Proximity Control Assist.

Jaga Brothers Transport was the first operator to put the new GigaSpace to use on its steel and brick-carrying work. The haulier operates a fleet of 40 tractor units, with four different manufacturers in the yard, seven of which are current Actros.

“We ran the Actros for a couple of weeks and the feedback from our drivers was overwhelmingly positive,” said Jaga Brothers transport manager James Hill. “One driver loved its big, spacious and well-appointed cab, while the other driver was blown away by its pulling power.

“The Actros returned more than 9mpg most of the time, which is bound to improve as it gets more miles under its belt and settles down.”

Euro Commercials truck sales manager Gary Clark said: “Not many dealers would be prepared to put such a highly specified vehicle on their demonstration fleet, but at Euro Commercials we like to think outside the box. There’s a relatively small, tight-knit tractor unit community here in south Wales, and we’re looking forward to giving as many of them as possible the opportunity to put the latest Mercedes technology to the test.”
