The concept vehicle “Light II” based on the Mercedes-Benz Econic is 1.2 tonnes lighter than a standard disposal vehicle. Munich’s waste management department is currently testing whether this pays off. One thing is already certain: the vehicle is second to none in terms of working comfort and safety.
Mileage. The 190 collection vehicles operating for Munich’s waste management department (AWM) covered a total of 2.3 million kilometres in 2015. Their fuel consumption: just under 1.6 million litres – plenty of saving potential.
