Mercedes-Benz Atego truck – design sketches
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the first images and sketches of the new Atego, a lightweight short-radius distribution truck in the 6.5 t to 16 t GVWR segment.
With the new Artego, Mercedes-Benz completes the renewal of its truck product family of models, which includes the new Actros, Antos and Arocs series.
The new model will be offered with a choice of seven new Euro VI engine variants, which can be combined with a broad range of manual and automatic transmissions.
The cab design fits in neatly with the new Mercedes-Benz model series, and features a modern face with a new bumper integrating the daytime running lamps, optionally available with LED technology.
The Atego will have its premiere in April 2013 at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham and at the Bauma Trade Fair in Munich, with sales starting from May 2013.
