* The specified mass in running order is a default value defined in the type-approval procedure. Due to manufacturing tolerances, the actual weighed mass in running order may deviate from the value stated above. Deviations of up to ± 5 % of the mass in running order are legally permissible and possible. The permissible range in kilograms is given in brackets after the mass in running order.
The manufacturer-specified mass for optional equipment is a calculated value for each type and layout that [brand] uses to determine the maximum weight available for factory-fitted optional equipment. The limitation of optional equipment is intended to ensure that the minimum pay-mass, i.e. the legally prescribed free mass for baggage and retrofitted accessories, is actually available for the vehicle load capacity of the vehicles delivered by [brand].
The real weight of your vehicle ex works can only be determined when it is weighed at the end of the line. If, in exceptional cases, the weighing shows that the actual load capacity falls below theminimum pay-mass despite limiting the optional equipment due to a permissible weight deviation, we will check together with your trade partner and you whether we should, for example, increase the load capacity of the vehicle, reduce the number of seats or remove optional equipment before delivering the vehicle.
The technically permissible maximum laden mass of the vehicle and the technically permissible maximum mass on the axle must not be exceeded.
Detailed information & explanations on the subject of weight and the configuration of the vehicle can be found in the section Legal information.
We would like to point out that we assume no liability for the correctness or completeness of any information on this website.
The manufacturers of the chassis reserve the right to change the equipment and specifications of the chassis. For more information, please visit the manufacturer's website.
