Summer is nearly here – and so is Truckfest!
Truckfest 2018 is coming up on 6 and 7 May. Find out what will be on the Mercedes-Benz Trucks stand this year.
We will have lots of experiences, activities and, of course, trucks for Truckfest Peterborough visitors to check out over the May Bank Holiday weekend.
With an Actros1, FUSO eCanter and a range of Arocs, Econic and Unimog vehicles on show, there’ll be something for everyone to see at the Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK stand this year.
New models and experiences.
The jewel in the crown of our Truckfest line-up, and making its UK show debut, is our all-new, limited edition Actros1. The Actros1 combines the very latest innovations in safety, efficiency, connectivity and comfort to create the perfect business partner.
Developed exclusively for the UK market, the flagship model will take pride of place on the Mercedes-Benz stand and will be open for all visitors to look around and get into the driving seat.
Visitors will also be able to get behind the wheel and try out Active Brake Assist 4, without having to head out on the track. The only safety system with pedestrian detection technology, festival-goers can see how Active Brake Assist 4 makes Mercedes-Benz trucks safer out on the road in our virtual reality experience.
More vehicles than ever.
A huge range of vehicles from the Daimler family will be on show at the Mercedes-Benz Truckfest stand, including the all-new FUSO eCanter – the world’s first, series-produced fully-electric light-duty truck.
Other vehicles on display on the Mercedes-Benz stand will include the Arocs, Econic and Unimog, along with 10 real drivers and their vehicles, who won VIP access to the show in a recent RoadStars competition.
Selected by trucker and journalist Bob Beech, each of the 10 drivers will be on the stand with their trucks for the whole weekend for visitors to meet and check out their vehicles.
Fun for the family.
We have activities for all the family taking place at our stand across the weekend. Those who like high-octane thrills will appreciate the stunt bike tour show which will be performing throughout the weekend, four times a day.
For children there will be face painting and activities in our family marquee and, if the sun is shining, we’ll also be running a family picnic area, where you can take the weight off your feet for a while!
