In its pursoot to revolutionize the trailer, Mercedes-Benz has released the first looks into its model trailer. Mercedes-Benz an aero-trailer to improve fuel efficiency. To facilitate its own operators and to please the environmentally conscious, the German manufacturer has designed this optimized trailer that they hope will leap over the legal hurdles.
The result is a trailer that features a front airdam, side trim panels rear diffuser, and a tapered rear design that adds up to an 18 percent reduction in wind resistance when paired with the Mercedes Actros tractor. Mercedes projects that a truck averaging 150,000 kilometers per year (93,205 miles) will save 2000 liters of diesel (528 gallons) while releasing five fewer tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Pretty inventive and sleek.
