Two years after starting the local manufacture of the light truck Accelo manual box, Mercedes-Benz announced the start of production of the Accelo Automated, in its versions 815 y 1016, En of Juan Manual Fangio Industrial Center of Virrey del Pino, located in La Matanza.
In this way, the brand hopes to continue leading the light truck segment, now incorporating two more versions to those already manufactured by the team in Argentina.
Mercedes-Benz also presented the new Atego 1729, a truck with more power, a fully automated gearbox (which autonomously performs gear selection and synchronization work) and a single-speed rear axle. The result: increased interior comfort and greater possibility of concentration on the road for the driver; and increased profitability for the carrier.
Another great novelty is the incorporation of Euro engines V to the remanufacturing of parts at the Argentine plant in Reman. With the focus on providing solutions to its customers, the brand is continually expanding its portfolio. Acquiring these parts reduces repair time and, simultaneously, contributes to caring for the environment, reducing pollution by disposal. Reman offers low costs by ensuring the tried and tested quality of Mercedes-Benz.
“In a year full of challenges for the automotive industry, we decided to locally produce the Accelo Automatizado, which we used to bring from Brazil. We are proud to manufacture both versions -manual and automated- of the Accelo in our Industrial Center. To this we add the incorporation of Euro V engines to the Reman line at the factory. We also launched the new Atego 1729, the new medium-heavy so long awaited by our customers "Said Raul Barcesat, head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks and Buses
“These novelties are proof of the faithful commitment that Mercedes-Benz has with the country. Today more than ever the crucial role of transportation has become evident and that is why we are proud to make it possible for carriers to provide the best service and to optimize their business. We continue to work side by side with customers with the aim of providing mobility solutions ”, He added.
