Mercedes AtegoAtego Truck is an intermediate range of collection-distribution trucks produced by Mercedes since 1997.
Compact and manoeuvrable, the Mercedes Atego is particularly suited to city driving. Its PTAC is between 7.5 and 16 tonnes. The Atego is equipped with a 4- or 6-cylinder diesel engine, with a displacement of 4.2 to 6.4 liters. Depending on the model, the displayed power can range from 130 to 290 horsepower.
BlueTEC technology, which reduces pollutant emissions and fuel consumption, has been fitted to Atego trucks since 2005. The Atego was voted Truck of the Year in 2011, notably for its “BlueTEC Hybrid” version equipped with an auxiliary electric motor complementary to the diesel engine.
The most recent models can benefit from the Telligent system which optimizes the transmission and improves braking capabilities. Mercedes presented in 2013 the new version of the Atego, equipped with an even more efficient engine, to meet the requirements of the Euro 6 standard.
