Unimog Part of a Legend

Unimog Those behind it. Those who use it. Those who love it. Heroes. Dedicated to work.

Many legends are born out of hard times; the Unimog is no different. Built in the aftermath of World War II, the Unimog was the brilliant idea of a former head of aeroengine design and was constructed to take on the toughest tasks from the very beginning. Created to go anywhere and complete any job easily, the first Unimog rolled off the production line in 1948.  Earning its badge in 1953, the Mercedes star would sit proudly on the front of the Unimog S from 1955 to 1980 as it supported the armed forces and took explorers on new adventures. 

As more people discovered what this workhorse could do, new models were developed to suit different challenges. The bigger, better 406 series came in 1963, with the 425 series taking on the heavy-duty work from 1965. Between 1985 and 1996 the Unimog got its reputation as a master of all tasks, with the 408 and 419 series built to support local authorities back home. Today, new technologies such as a Euro VI engine, torque tube driveline and VarioPilot mean the latest Unimog models can take on anything modern businesses can throw at it. Whatever the task or terrain, a ‘can-do attitude’ still lies at the very heart of every Unimog. A true icon. A true legend.

HVO, or Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, is the new sustainable way to power your Unimog. It’s a paraffinic drop-in fuel – or a biofuel – which can be used as a more sustainable replacement for diesel. Your Unimog will take HVO in both its pure form, and as part of a mixture to improve overall environmental performance. This means you can continue to operate your workhorse around the clock, whilst minimising your impact on the planet.
The use of unblended HVO leads to significant improvements in CO2 emission performance, with a 90% reduction of CO2 emissions possible, depending on how the HVO is sourced and produced.

Why choose HVO?

  • Engine performance and torque data remain unchanged
  • The use of HVO requires no engine or peripheral modifications
  • The injection process, fuel lines and seals remain unchanged
  • No impact on warranty or goodwill policy Intervals for oil changes and for cleaning the particulate filter remain unchanged
  • Free mixing of HVO and conventional diesel is possible
  • Long shelf life
  • Low-temperature performance to -30 degrees
  • Completely biodegradable
  • Fossil / FAME free and odourless
  • HVO fuel adheres to EN15940 standards
