Mercedes-Benz has already made an early decision in favour of the future-proof solution of BlueTec® which is based on SCR (selective catalytic reduction) diesel technology and on higher-efficiency engines which are in turn more economical. Thanks to SCR diesel technology, Mercedes-Benzreduces exhaust emissions and fuel consumption. The initial investment pays off more quickly than you might expect.
For anyone who feels that Euro 5 is not environmentally friendly enough, the Axor with 210 kW and 240 kW already offers the option of meeting the stricter EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) emissions standard. The resulting lower particulate emissions benefit not only the environment but you as well as you can drive the Axor with BlueTec® in environmental zones.
