Following its world premiere in Berlin, the new Mercedes-Benz Actros has since celebrated its trade fair premiere at the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hanover. With more than 60 technological innovations, the design of the new Mercedes-Benz Actros has also seen a big change. Especially noticeable is the absence of regular exterior mirrors. Instead, the new version of the heavy-duty truck comes as standard with the dynamically designed MirrorCam and thus benefits from more homogeneous proportions.The typical front headlamps with LED daytime running lights also contribute to the progressive look of the truck: the new, flowing light signature on the upper headlamp edge makes the Actros unmistakeable at night. During the day, the new, standard LED daytime running lights help ensure that the Actros is as conspicuous as possible for other road users. Besides the advanced exterior, the modern truck interior is also a key feature in the design of the new Actros.In the new Actros, the interior design was resolutely designed around the driver’s needs – „inside-out“ to put it another way. Formative for the design process was thus the „User Experience“ of the driver. And this can be seen best in the Multimedia Cockpit. Two free-floating, extremely high-resolution displays replace the traditional cockpit. They can be controlled using the touch-pads integrated in the redesigned steering wheel. The secondary display, meanwhile, also features touch-screen technology for direct operation. But the representation on the displays isn’t just a functional experience; it also enhances the emotive appearance and the comprehensibility of the operating structure whilst impressing users with brilliant, pixel-perfect graphics.
