Mercedes-Benz trucks with BlueTec already comply with the Euro 4 emission regulations which come into force in 2006 and even the Euro 5 limits due to apply from 2009. At the same time, they are distinguished by considerably reduced fuel consumption. For Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks, BlueTec has been available since the beginning of 2005. At the RAI international commercial vehicle show in Amsterdam, the Mercedes-Benz Axor and Mercedes-Benz Atego trucks series are also being presented to the public equipped with BlueTec.

    Technologies for the future: Hybrid and fuel-cell-powered vans by DaimlerChrysler: Inner-city delivery vans do most of their work in areas where emissions are a major issue, therefore DaimlerChrysler is intensively developing alternative drive systems. Top left: Hybrid Sprinter with plug-in technology undergoing trials in North America. Top right: Fuel Cell Sprinter also undergoing trials in the USA. Bottom left: Canter with hybrid drive ready for series production: owing to extremely densely populated areas, hybrid vehicles such as the Canter HEV play an important role in Japan. The drive train of the Canter HEV consists of a diesel engine (92 kW/125 hp), an electric motor with an output of 35 kW and lithium-ion batteries. Bottom right: Hybrid drive with a Freightliner chassis: together with Eaton, Freightliner has developed 18 vans with hybrid drive for the FedEx parcel service.
