Mercedes-Benz Delivers First Natural Gas-Powered Mercedes-Benz Econic to ALDI SÜD Group

The first Mercedes-Benz Econic with NGT (Natural Gas Technology) for food distribution operations has been delivered to the ALDI SÜD group of companies in Mönchengladbach, Germany. The vehicle is a semitrailer tractor with a high roof and a refrigerated semitrailer.

ALDI SÜD uses the new Mercedes-Benz Econic NGT to supply its branches on the left bank of the Lower Rhine from the central warehouse in Mönchengladbach.

The Econic NGT offers environmental benefits such as lower CO2 emissions versus comparable diesel-powered vehicles; CO2-neutral operation when biogas is used as a fuel, zero particulate emissions and a low noise level. Power is transferred by a six-speed automatic transmission.

The vehicle meets the European EEV emission standard (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle).



This is simply the result of existing incentives on ALDI SUD's balance sheet...not necessarily environmental stewardship.


It sure is a good looking truck and clean as well. It would be nice to have more like this in the U.S. delivering in cities and suburbs.
