In future 80 Econic trucks will be setting standards in terms of safety, comfort and eco friendliness in Hong Kong.
The translation of Hong Kong is "fragrant harbour". Thus cleanliness and sustainability are of central importance to the Asian mega-metropolis with its population of around 7.5 million. This is the case in the waste management industry, for example, where thousands of tonnes of waste must be removed fast and safely on a daily basis. To then also comply with modern demands regarding safety and comfort, state and private waste disposal companies rely increasingly on low-entry trucks. And what was the first choice for the latest fleet expansion? the Econic. 80 units of the waste disposal truck will be on Hong Kong’s roads in future.
Thoroughly tested in practical operations.
Of course a decision of this importance requires thorough testing. That is why Econic trials began in 2017 in Hong Kong. And it quickly became clear that the waste disposal vehicle meets all of the requirements in terms of safety, comfort and eco friendliness. The Econic scores particularly well when driving in urban traffic thanks to the driver’s direct view of the road and the truck’s excellent manoeuvrability. The Econic also proved itself off-road, on the often steep access roads to the waste sites.
