Mercedes-Benz Road to the Future From BlueTEC diesel to vehicles: Modula

Mercedes-Benz to the Future — From diesel to electric vehicles:


Jun 13, 2008 — Fuel-efficient and premium automobiles from without the need to forego the brand features — comfort and refined driving This is the strategy of the Stuttgart vehicle manufacturer. One emphasis the development strategy is on modular technologies that can be utilized individually or in combination, depending vehicle class, usage and customer requirements. With its to the Future” Mercedes-Benz has presented on the product implementation. Mercedes-Benz a tangible outlook into the of the combustion engine with the DIESOTTO engine in the research F 700.

World population, and the need for individual mobility, is set to dras-tically over the next few At the same time, natural are be-coming increasingly scarce as as consequently more expensive for consumers and vehicle manufacturers. Add to legislative requirements for the environmental of vehicles differ dramatically region to region across the For example, many European have now established environment and the state of California has legislated for zero-emissions vehicles.

Individually solutions for diverse requirements

developments are already having a impact on customer behavior.

economic factors — increasing fuel prices the environmental sustainability of vehicles is importance in the purchasing decision.

customer requirements are also increasingly differentiated and more — those who drive distances cross country different vehicle requirements those who travel largely or in and around congested urban Therefore, Mercedes-Benz is convinced in the future, one single technology not prevail on the road to sustainable Instead, to these multi-faceted the company is offering equally individually tailored solutions. The of individual technologies in respect of fuel consumption and emissions are played to their best in specific fields of application. The taken by Mercedes-Benz as a premium is therefore based on vehicle with modular powertrain that ensure that customer benefit and environmental always take center-stage for the with the three-pointed star.

Roadmap for sustainable mobility

The development strategy is centered on its leading position within the vehicle segment. Thus, key fields of action were

in the roadmap for sustainable mobility:

of vehicles with the very combustion engines — as downsizing, gasoline direct turbocharging and BlueTEC — as as specific vehicles optimization in areas such as aerodynamics, design and energy management

Further efficiency improvements via tailored hybridization in a number of — from the start/stop through to the Two-Mode hybrid full electric drive

Zero-emissions driving with cells and battery-powered vehicles.

the company is also pursuing the of clean and alter-native fuels do not present a competitive threat to crops — one particular being SunDiesel made waste plant material.

achieves up to twelve percent fuel consumption

Development have devised individual tailor-made for each vehicle The objective is to find the best for each individual vehicle Under the BlueEFFICIENCY label, has developed a package of various economic measures, which be rolled out through the entire model range. It encompasses of weight, aerodynamics, rolling energy management and powertrain. A example of this is the Mercedes-Benz C 180 equipped with a four-cylinder engine. While its predecessor had a of 1.8 liters, the engine displacement in the new has been reduced to 1.6 liters. power and torque output been maintained at the same (156 hp, 230 Nm), fuel has been reduced by 0.9 liters to 6.5 per 100 km, in combination with other such as the new electric ECO steering decreased rolling resistance. CO2 are down by over

20 grams per kilometer — 177 to 156 grams per kilometer. Overall, initiatives can reduce fuel by up to twelve percent. The potential of initiatives shows the fact, when it comes to fuel — in Germany, the C 180 KOMPRESSOR and the C 200 CDI a combined share of C-Class of 25 percent.

Diesel as clean as

It is the stated objective of Mercedes-Benz to gasoline engines as efficient as engines, and diesel engines as as gasoline engines. With the efficient BlueTEC exhaust gas system, Mercedes-Benz has already the diesel as clean as the gasoline and thus proven the future of the self-ignition engine. When it to fuel consumption, the latest technology is currently the best for large sedans and SUVs. is demonstrated by the success of the E 320 BlueTEC, which Mercedes-Benz launched the of the diesel powertrain for passenger in the U.S. market in October This year will see Mercedes-Benz SUVs follow equipped with the world’s diesel technology.

The R 320 BlueTEC, the GL 320 and the ML 320 BlueTEC represent a further in the U.S.diesel offensive. In March Mercedes-Benz became the first in the world to achieve registration in all 50 states for Diesel SUVs.

… as fuel-efficient as diesel

The preferred for improving the efficiency of the gasoline are for example reduction in displacement downsizing — and turbocharging. As by the C 180 KOMPRESSOR, fuel savings can be without loss of performance. consumption can be further reduced and output increased through the of second-generation gasoline direct The E 350 CGI consumes 8.7 liters per 100 kilometers, is ten percent less than the identical 3.5 liter V6 gasoline with port injection, in of its 20 hp higher power output. technology will be implemented in all gasoline engines.

Starting 2009 — and powerful gasoline hybrids

potential for the increased efficiency of engines can be

realized through technologies. As early as next Mercedes-Benz will launch two hybrids. In the U.S. the ML 450 BlueHYBRID be the most fuel-efficient SUV available equipped with a Two-Mode that can also be driven purely by electricity. This variant is particularly suitable for and enables fuel savings in long-distance driving. Also year, the S 400 BlueHYBRID will set a new in the luxury class. With 7.9 liters fuel consumption in the it is the world’s most fuel-efficient in its class.

In parallel, Mercedes-Benz is a needs-based solution for smaller Crucial to the choice of the hybrid are the real-life usage patterns the actual everyday driving and the cost/benefit relationship. This is why opted to introduce the smooth ECO function in the A- and B-Class — a that had already proven in principle in the smart fortwo hybrid drive, and was further for the A- and B-Class.

BlueTEC HYBRID the champion fuel saver of the

According to Mercedes experts, diesel hybrids currently the greatest fuel-saving potential the larger vehicle segments. The HYBRID technology is a highly powertrain system that will bring to series The latest study vehicle Mercedes-Benz, the Vision GLK BlueTEC offers a concrete perspective on technology. This concept is equipped with the all-new four-cylinder diesel. Paired a compact hybrid module, the drive assembly has a combined output of 165 kW/224 hp and a combined of 560 Nm — a figure that is on par large-displacement V8 gasoline engines at the top of the SUV segment. The refined driving of the Vision GLK BlueTEC HYBRID with an extremely low fuel of only 5.9 liters per 100 kilometers.

DIESOTTO combines the best of gasoline and diesel

The benefits of gasoline engines and the fuel advantages of modern diesel are brought together in the DIESOTTO developed by Mercedes-Benz. It combines an kind of compression ignition other technologies such as injection and turbocharging. An additional module is integrated within the F 700 vehicle. As a result, the F 700 offers the performance of a gasoline engine kW/238 hp plus 15 kW/20 hp) and the torque of a diesel engine Nm). Yet, the research consumes only 5.3 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers and emits 127 grams of CO2 per kilometer, which is low for a vehicle in this class.

with zero local through pure electric

In parallel to hybrid concepts, is working intensively on solutions for electric driving using cells and batteries. Electric are particularly quiet, highly and have zero local Already since 1991 the is doing research in the field of cell technology and therefore has a experience in electric driving.

cognitions can be gainfully used for the of battery vehicles as well. 2007, the Stuttgart vehicle has been operating a battery-powered fleet comprising 100 smart electric drive vehicles in As a zero-emissions vehicle, the smart electric drive enjoys tax and is exempt from local — such as the congestion levied in the British capital. makes it an interesting and environment-friendly especially within urban

But the success of innovative drive is directly linked to the allocation and of corresponding infrastructures. Thereby a more intensive collaboration energy companies, petroleum and politics

together with manufactures is needed.

Advancement in cell development

Mercedes-Benz is a leader in the field of fuel technology. Mercedes-Benz has at its disposal the largest customer test and will begin with a series production in 2010 of the F-Cell, featuring the next-generation cell drive. This new has a considerable higher output, at the same time being compact. It is capable of cold-start at as low as -25 degrees Celsius, has a significantly range of up to 400 kilometers and also short refueling times. The key to all of vehicle electrification is the energy unit — from to pure electric driving fuel cell and battery Compared with other of batteries, lithium-ion technology considerable advantages, including compact dimensions, much power output, a long cycle and a high level of The future will see Mercedes-Benz use batteries also in battery-powered and cell vehicles. Mercedes-Benz achieved the breakthrough in this through patented technological In 2009

Mercedes-Benz as the world’s manufacturer will introduce a car with lithium-ion battery to — the S 400 BlueHYBRID.

Clean for clean power units

The of fuels and powertrains is inseparable High quality and alternative can release further potential in the of fuel consumption and emissions.

For the most promising option regenerative fuels for combustion is second-generation biofuels — BTL To Liquid) such as SunDiesel. is an extremely pure, completely from sulfur and aromatics which emits very few under combustion and is virtually CO2 The synthetic fuel is derived the atomization of biomass from a of biogenic ingredients and waste meaning that it does not a threat to food crops. SunDiesel can be used in current and diesel engines without any for modification. The transportation and storage of also requires no modification to the fuel infrastructure.

In early 2002, together CHOREN, Daimler began to usage op-portunities for BTL, as as its economic feasibility and energy Since 2003, the company has testing the fuel in its vehicles everyday driving conditions, and was to confirm the advantages of its use in diesel Daimler AG has had a shareholding in CHOREN since 2006.

Intelligent mix as a solution for future mobility

has already brought a large of customized technological solutions to that meet the demands of the The latest examples are the BlueEFFICIENCY of the A- and B-Class with ECO start/stop and the B 170 NGT. The modular powertrain mix from of state-of-the-art combustion with BlueTEC or direct with and without hybridization to emission free battery and cell vehicles — offers all the prerequisites for long-term, and individually tailored mobility for customers, at the high levels from the brand.
