  • Stuttgart/Hanover, Sep 21, 2012 - Filling the tank of a long-haul articulated vehicle now costs between 1000 and 2000 euros. Daimler's Aerodynamics Truck & Trailer initiative drastically reduces drag and fuel consumption. The Aerodynamics Trailer results in annual savings of around 2000 litres of diesel per articulated vehicle, corresponding to almost 3000 euros. At the same time, annual emissions are cut by more than five tons of CO2. The Mercedes-Benz Aerodynamics Truck also boasts impressive fuel efficiency figures.

  • Stuttgart/Hanover, Sep 18, 2012 - To further reduce fuel consumption in truck/semitrailer combinations, Daimler launched its "Aerodynamics Truck & Trailer" initiative. As part of this, engineers researched the aerodynamics of current vehicle concepts and then developed two innovative and at the same time practicable solutions. The solutions are relatively easy to put in place in the short term. Last year, the tractor/trailer combination was a spectacular design study, this year it is already a reality: with the new Mercedes-Benz Aerodynamics trailer, a long-haul tractor unit can save approximately 2000 litres of diesel annually, thereby saving its operator nearly 3000 euros in expenses.
