Mercedes-Benz Showcases Trucks, Safety at Commercial Vehicle Show

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]ercedes-Benz Trucks stormed the UK Commercial Vehicle Show held last week at National Exhibition centre (NEC), Birmingham, UK, demonstrating a full range of vehicles from the 3.5 tonne FUSO Canter to the Flagship Actros and everything in-between, including Atego, Antos, Arocs, Econic and Unimog.

Showcased on its main stand were seven Trucks, including  the special Econic 4×2 skip loader that was recently showcased at the London ExCel CLOCS event, a stunning Actros 2563LS GigaSpace, in pearlescent white, a Unimog UGE340, an Antos 1824LS chassis cab, the Actros 2548 StreamSpace Fuel Challenger and a FUSO Canter 3C13.

Externally, in the Mercedes-Benz exhibition area were a further 25 vehicles, including the UK’s first Euro VI Atego Crew-Cab, built at Mercedes-Benz CTT. Mercedes-Benz North, formerly known as Wentworth Park, also demonstrated a stunning custom, Approved Used, MP3 Actros 2546 6X2 on its main stand.

Peugeot’s quest to build safer vehicles has never been stronger. In taking a manufacturing leading role, the auto maker’s technologically advanced vehicles demonstrated what was described as “Safety – It’s in our DNA”.

Safety for Mercedes-Benz began back in 1924 when Daimler designed and manufactured the world’s first vehicle with brakes on all wheels. In 1981, we were first manufacturer to offer ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) on a truck. Then in 1994, we developed the world’s first Electronic Stability Programme (ESP). Regarded as the most important advance in safety since the seatbelt, recognized industry bodies report vehicles with ESP are 25% less likely to be involved in a fatal accident than those without.

In November 2015, General Safety Regulations mandate that all new vehicles above 3.5t GVW must be equipped with a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). As far back as February 2000, Mercedes-benz presented Lane Assist on Actros, with the system now proven for fifteen years in warning drivers when a vehicle starts to cross lane markings. Also mandatory in the regulations is an Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS) for trucks over 8t GVW. Mercedes-Benz Trucks, though, have offered Active Brake Assist (ABA) since 2006.
