The foundations for safe work.

Safe on construction sites and the streets of Berlin in an Econic cement mixer.

A building is only as stable as its foundations. That is undisputed in the construction sector, and in this case it also applies to the commercial vehicles used. Because wherever a diverse range of tasks are required, trucks with particularly flexible equipment are needed. And that's where the Econic as a base vehicle is right on cue.

The body options for the special truck are virtually unlimited: whether as a concrete mixer, three-way tipper or skip lorry, thanks to its DirectVision design, the Econic isn't just a specialist for inner-city and urban traffic, it's also a great all-rounder there too. An Econic as a cement mixer is just providing impressive proof of this in the busy streets of Berlin.

Preventing dangerous situations in inner-city traffic.

Cars, motorbikes, cyclists, pedestrians and now even electric scooters: the traffic on the capital's roads is becoming increasingly cramped and confusing. However, the Mercedes-Benz Econic is tailor-made for this kind of operation: with its low-positioned "DirectVision" cab it is designed so that the driver is at eye level with pedestrians and cyclists.

In combination with the generously glazed driver's cab and the fully-glazed co-driver's folding door, there is always the possibility of eye contact with other road users. This direct view has been proven to be a decisive safety feature. The risk of accidents when turning into a different road is thus minimised, also in connection with the optionally available Sideguard Assist function.

Intelligent systems for maximum safety.

The Econic can be equipped with up to ten safety assistance systems on request. Cameras, sensors and additional lighting systems ensure that the driver can focus on the most important tasks. Even in situations which require utmost concentration: turning, manoeuvring and reversing.
