Delivering fresh produce with the Econic mobile coolbox.
In central Paris, just as in many other cities in Europe and throughout the world – be it Valencia, Athens, Stockholm, Berlin, Prague or Singapore – the Econic can be found hard at work, delivering refrigerated produce. It is here in the hectic traffic conditions of cities that the low-emission vehicle, equipped with a host of safety features, particularly comes into its own. And now an Econic with a high-tech refrigeration concept and innovative semi-automatic PowerShift transmission has come to the streets of the City of Love.
Fruit and veg at the front, meat and fish at the rear.
French company Lecapitaine has joined forces with Mercedes-Benz to develop a refrigerated body for the Econic. And the result is pretty impressive: the body has two separate refrigeration systems which allow different refrigeration temperatures to be maintained on board. They provide the Econic with two refrigeration zones, one which can be cooled down to minus 20 degrees, the other to 7 degrees. This is made possible by a flexible partition wall which allows the refrigeration compartment to be divided up exactly as required. A lifting platform with a carrying capacity of 2.5 tonnes ensures easy loading and unloading.
