• The "new generation" - a compact all-rounder with a tipper
The two-axle tipper from Mercedes-Benz was something like the bread-and-butter truck of the seventies. In 1973 the technically and visually completely renewed model series "New Generation" was presented in Wörth, which from then on was only distributed as "NG". The modular design in the successor to the cubic series made medium and heavy weight classes possible with one and the same basic model. The production capacity in Wörth had been gradually increased from 1969 onwards to up to 100,000 units a year. But already in 1975 Mercedes-Benz exceeded this mark with the construction of 105,200 trucks - the "NG" series had arrived on the market. The highly flexible production that began in 1973, strictly according to the modular system, was to make Mercedes-Benz indispensable on construction sites.
