Mercedes-Benz launches Actros Edition 2

Mercedes-Benz has launched its limited edition Actros Edition 2 6×2 or 4×2 tractor with a range of options included.

The tractor builds on design elements from the Actros 1 and has up to 40 new options for the vehicle’s interior and exterior which sets the Edition 2 apart from other models in the Actros range, according to Mercedes-Benz.

Inside the cab, the dashboard and door handles are covered in nappa leather, while other elements have a carbon-fibre look, and the roof hatch features ambient lighting. The top bunk comes with bedding and is 900 mm wide, with an all-around curtain to ensure privacy.

On the outside, there are exclusive side wall decals with a star pattern, Edition 2 lettering in the lacquered sun visor, the Actros emblem in front, Actros lettering on the upper side of the cab’s back wall, as well as four additional LED spotlights in the sun visor and three LED working lights behind the cab. The entrance steps and rear axle caps, with protective wheel nut caps, are made from stainless steel.

The Edition 2 is available with GigaSpace or BigSpace cabs and cab paint can be tailored specifically to match an operator’s corporate shade, while the front of the vehicle is always finished in moonstone grey metallic, making the truck instantly recognisable.

The Actros Edition 2 features a range of safety equipment as standard including Active Brake Assist 5 emergency braking system, MirrorCam and optional Active Drive Assist technology that makes partially automated driving (SAE level 2) a reality.

In addition, Predictive Powertrain Control can help to deliver fuel savings and makes the job easier for drivers on rural routes, according to Mercedes-Benz.

The Edition 2, which is limited to 400 units in left- and right-hand drive, will go on sale in January 2021.
