Delivers solutions. For today and tomorrow.
How do you develop a unique generation of commercial vehicles like the Econic? By not following conventions. By just following your convictions. The highlight of this vehicle is the worldwide pioneering cab concept: Low Entry. Panoramic glazing, exemplary ergonomics, intuitive control systems. Everything is designed to assist the driver in interaction with the vehicle in the best possible way. And to master the particular challenges of the city safely and efficiently. Every day. For all road users.
Ergonomic. Efficient. Safe. Even when things get tight.
The Econic completes transport tasks safely and efficiently, even in the tight confines of the city. Everything is designed to assist the driver in interaction with the vehicle in the best possible way. And to reliably meet the particular challenges of tight and often confusing urban traffic. Every day. For all road users.
Quiet and versatile.
From food transport to towing: the Econic both thrives in urban traffic and bears its responsibility towards the community and the environment. Starting work at night is common in many places, especially in logistics. Because of the early operating hours, it is important for companies to make sure that their own vehicles are as quiet as possible. This is where the Econic comes in: its four corner air suspension helps to reduce noise.
Individual body solutions for every application.
When it comes to transport options for goods, maximum flexibility is essential – particularly in distribution transport. Thanks to various chassis variants, the body-friendly low frame and the optimum arrangement of the units, the Econic has a wide range of body options for every logistics requirement: whether lightweight or heavyweight, deep-freeze bodies or beverage transport logistics. This way everything reaches its destination safely – meeting your expectations.
Breakdown helper with a three-pointed star.
Jige International has converted an Econic 1830 4x2 into a tow truck for a Parisian company's breakdown recovery team. Thanks to the 5.10 m long wheelbase and PowerShift transmission, the agile Econic can reach the scene of a breakdown through narrow and over-crowded streets with ease.
Fresh and frozen.
Particularly in large cities, the low-emissions truck with a wealth of safety technology on-board is truly impressive in the hustle and bustle of urban traffic. And now an Econic with a high-tech refrigeration concept and innovative semi-automatic PowerShift transmission has come to the streets of Paris, the City of Love!
The DirectVision cab of the Econic enables optimum all-round visibility.
Safe transport in dense urban traffic, punctual delivery. Roads chockablock with parked cars, confusing traffic situations and passing cyclists are just some of the many daily challenges in inner-city logistics. Aboard the Econic the driver always has a good overview thanks to its panoramic glazing and low seating position. A direct view of street and pavement is a considerable advantage over conventional trucks and is important for the safety of more vulnerable road users. Because if you can see what is going on with your own eyes, you can drive in a more anticipatory manner, assess hazardous situations better and react faster. A sophisticated mirror and camera system prevents blind spots. The excellent all-round visibility makes manoeuvring easier and helps to prevent hazards from arising in the first place.
The Econic's impressive smart assistance systems guarantee greater safety.
Narrow roads, pedestrians, children on their way to school, cyclists on the slip road: in complicated and hectic situations, every second matters. The Active Brake Assist emergency braking system is standard for the Econic; it automatically triggers a braking manoeuvre if a risk of collision with stationary and moving objects is detected. The Econic features as many as ten safety assistants that reliably support the driver. This means less stress behind the wheel and greater safety for more vulnerable road users.

With Low Entry, the Econic provides active safety at work.
Good logistics begins with a good place of work. And in the Econic, it is designed precisely to support the driver perfectly. The low step unit guarantees that work in distribution transport is carried out easily and optimally: easy entry, a comfortable standing height in the interior and an inwards-opening folding door that enables entry and exit on the side facing away from traffic. What's more, ergonomic seating, intuitively arranged instruments, a steering wheel with multi-function buttons and a clearly arranged instrument panel create a healthy working environment.
With the instrument cluster and modern display, the driver has all important vehicle data available at a glance. The centrally positioned displays for the optional image-based safety assistance systems also allow the driver access to camera images of the vehicle surroundings. An electric roller sun blind, which can even be closed up to the level of the exterior mirrors when the cameras are in use, prevents sun glare.
Great at multitasking.
With the clear displays and intuitive instruments in the cockpit, the driver is sure to feel at home in no time! The powerful premium engine brake is, for example, activated with ease using the right-hand multi-function lever. The radio, telephone and instrument cluster are all easy to operate using the multi-function steering wheel. Controls for the body can also be integrated into the cockpit with ease, enabling the driver to directly control important functions from within the cab.
Space to be productive.
Whatever your plans for your Econic, its spacious cab offers great freedom of movement and its well-engineered design creates the best possible working conditions. Depending on the field of operation, there's room for up to three passengers. Ideal for frequent stops: When pulling away, the folding door on the passenger side closes automatically. Depending on the field of operation, a hinged door can also be installed.
