Mercedes-Benz has launched revised versions of its medium and heavy trucks for the Latin American market. All models incorporate the German truckmaker’s “Econfort” design philosophy which emphasizes Comfort + Economy + Power / Performance.

“The company’s medium Atego series, medium-heavy Axor series and Actros heavy truck series now offer over 40 new features related to Econfort,” says Philipp Schiemer , Mercedes-Benz CEO for Brazil and Latin America.

"With Econfort, we better able to meet customer and market demands, ensuring greater efficiency, productivity and profitability for operators with superior driver comfort. Econfort allows us to reinforce our brand's image as a total solutions provider for Latin America’s truck industry. "

With the implementation of Econfort, Mercedes-Benz has leveraged its market share in both Brazil’s semi-heavy and extra-heavy truck market segments. “We want the overall lead in truck sales in Brazil," says Schiemer .

Mercedes-Benz has a 30% market share in Brazil’s semi-heavy truck segment, and a 40% market share in the country’s extra-heavy truck segment.

The new features are the result of a US$1.3 billion investment in research and product development over the 2010 - 2015 period in Latin America for trucks and buses.
