IFAT 2024: A Unimog revolution and an in-depth look at the eEconic.

In May 2024, the IFAT in Munich will present the latest trends and technologies from the water, wastewater, waste and raw materials industry. And with the world’s leading trade fair once again setting standards for innovation and sustainability, Daimler Truck will of course be there. The highlight this time is the Unimog U 430 with the new UNI-TOUCH® operating system, which meets the latest safety standards of the General Safety Regulation (GSR). In addition, the eEconic and eActros will show how battery-electric vehicles are reinventing municipal services.

Come and visit us!

The IFAT will take place from 13 to 17 May at the exhibition grounds in Munich.
You can find us in hall C6 at stand 451.

The new Unimog implement carrier: more efficient, safer, more intuitive.

At the International Trade Fair for Wastewater Technology (IFAT) in Munich this year, visitors can once again expect to find more than their fair share of technical masterpieces. And all eyes are on the Unimog U 430, optimised for all-season use and which boasts not one, but two special innovations.

The first is the brand-new UNI-TOUCH® operating system, which will be standard equipment for the Unimog implement carrier from May 2024. Using the newly developed and ergonomically arranged UNI-TOUCH® controls, such as the 10.5-inch swivel screen with touch display, drivers can configure work processes quickly and easily according to their individual wishes while at the wheel of the Unimog.

The Unimog being exhibited in Munich also already meets the strict GSR standards of the European Union, which will come into force from July this year. It features a sophisticated sensor system and software, which let the new Unimog U 430 protect not only the driver, but also other road users better than ever before. These new systems also help to relieve the burden on the driver.

“Our customers will continue to enjoy high levels of comfort, intuitive operation and the usual safety standards when conducting their tasks on the road, on rails, in the field or off road now and in the future”, says Franziska Cusumano, Head of Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks.

A peek under the eEconic bonnet.

But Daimler Truck hasn't stopped there. The all-electric eEconic and eActros will also be taking centre stage at the IFAT 2024. At the stand you will find an eEconic 300 with 6x4/2 wheel configuration, which we are showcasing purely as a chassis without a body: a real treat for our visitors who love the technical side of things. 

Charged and ready: the eActros

The moderated live shows in the outdoor area will also be putting the spotlight on our electric trucks. Amongst other things, visitors can marvel at the eEconic 300 with a waste disposal body made by Zöller-Kipper GmbH at the VAK Truck in Action Show.

Outside the hall, visitors can also view the Arocs designed for stability and durability. This vehicle is mainly used in construction, but a motorway version with 6x4/4 wheel configuration and a body from Küpper-Weisser GmbH will be presented in Munich.

So it's safe to say that our visitors have much to look forward to.
