Mercedes-Benz is holding a customer launch with a difference for the new Actros in Australia and New Zealand.
Mercedes-Benz will live stream a drive in the smart new truck as it travels from Melbourne to Daylesford in Victoria starting at 11am AEST on Saturday July 4.
The new Actros is the first truck in Australia and New Zealand to feature cameras instead of side mirrors. It also introduces new features including large digital tablet-like cockpit displays and Predictive Powertrain Control, which uses GPS and topographic data to help the truck save fuel.
, who will be in the passenger seat for the Actros Live Drive event, is excited about the streamed journey.
“Normally, we would have held a traditional launch event with a huge amount of our customers, but that is just not possible given COVID-19,” said Mercedes-Benz Director Andrew Assimo
“Rather than just cancel an event or do something like a simple walk-around of the truck, we decided to head out onto the road and tell our story driving.”
