The new Actros now boasts additional fuel savings of up to 3% on the motorway and up to 5% on A and B roads. This results from further optimisation of the drivetrain and aerodynamics as well as from enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control, which is now also able to contribute to fuel savings on A and B roads and motorways.

  • Economical, reliable Euro VI engines in four displacement classes
  • Finely coordinated drivetrain configurations with 12-speed automated gearshift and optimised final-drive ratio
  • Fuel-saving drive programs
  • Further optimised, sophisticated aerodynamics
  • Fuel-efficient auxiliary consumers

Actros Predictive Powertrain Control

The system integrates a driving style optimised for the route topography into the operation of the automatic transmission and, in conjunction with the precisely coordinated shift strategy, allows fuel savings of up to 5% to be achieved. The new extended functions of Predictive Powertrain Control now enable use of the system's benefits on A and B roads, too. In addition to the satellite-based positioning system and precise 3D maps, Predictive Powertrain Control also uses the Traffic Sign Assist feature.

Automated anticipatory driving

On a steep hill, ahead of a hilltop, coasting down a hill, in dips or on the flat – Predictive Powertrain Control recognises impending driving situations in good time and takes anticipatory action. To this end, Predictive Powertrain Control continually monitors the vehicle's kinetic energy and uses it ahead of hilltops or on the flat for EcoRoll phases. This reduces engine drag losses and saves fuel. The system also adapts shift sequences to the impending driving situation, applying less gear changes and larger gear steps. This also helps to reduce fuel consumption.
