W211 E200NGT: environmentally solution with bi-fuel

With CO2 emissions reduced by than 20 percent and a more 50 percent reduction in operating the Mercedes-Benz E 200 NGT has been available the spring of 2004. As well as it one of the most cost-effective models in the range, the 120-kW/163-hp four engine under the bonnet of the bi E 200 NGT also makes it the most natural-gas-driven saloon currently in Natural-gas-powered vehicles are a key element of overall concept for reducing consumption and CO2 emissions, and for safeguarding a form of mobility.

The E 200 NGT (Natural Gas was developed at the Mercedes-Benz Technology on the platform of the E 200 KOMPRESSOR. The four-cylinder has a power rating of 120 kW/163 hp and a peak torque of 240 Newton Thanks to the elaborate solutions have been used to the additional technical components, delivery, comfort, quality and have not been compromised in any way the E 200 NGT.

The E 200 NGT with its bi-fuel power unit complies the same stringent EU 4 emissions met by the petrol-powered E 200 KOMPRESSOR. In natural-gas mode, emissions of carbon are cut by over 20 percent compared to operation.

Operating mode can be switched at the touch of a button

The E 200 NGT can be run on either gas or premium unleaded petrol, the driver being free to which of the two drive sources be deployed. The buttons in the multifunction wheel and the central display in the cluster can be used to switch natural-gas and petrol operation as Ensuring a smooth, jolt-free between modes is the task of a electronic control circuit orchestrates the changeover for each individually. A gauge in the instrument central display keeps the informed of the current level of gas in the Once the supply of gas has been the system automatically switches to petrol operation, so smoothly the change is imperceptible to the vehicle’s As soon as the reservoirs are refuelled natural gas, the journey is resumed in the gas operating mode.

Specific modifications to the supercharged engine

The supercharged TWINPULSE was modified by the addition of injector on the underside of the intake manifold. A regulator with sensor and shut-off valve is fitted the engine to regulate the supply of gas and maintain the required system at a constant level. The reprogrammed electronics ensure seamless in both drive modes. The E 200 NGT itself from comparable which often deliver performance in natural-gas mode, by the sophisticated four cylinder unit’s exemplary power and characteristics even when on natural gas. This the E 200 NGT the most powerful saloon a bi-fuel drive unit in series production.

This friendly variant of the E-Class is in Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland among other and in a right hand drive for Thailand and Singapore.

Comprehensive testing to ensure trademark safety.

The two fuel sources are in a petrol tank with a of 65 litres and four gas reservoirs a total storage capacity of 18 respectively. The reservoirs are located in the wheel well in the boot, and the rear bulkhead. A comprehensive of crash testing has been out to ensure the high standards of that Mercedes is renowned The leak tightness of the gas reservoirs was to particularly rigorous scrutiny – all, the natural gas that is into the reservoirs during is compressed to a pressure of 200 bar.

When its fuel reservoirs are replenished, the total range of the E 200 NGT – on the NEDC fuel consumption – is around 1000 kilometres, of just under 300 kilometres are with the natural-gas drive and the 700 kilometres with conventional power. The saloon may also be with an 80-litre petrol as an option, extending the maximum to nearly 1200 kilometres.

boot capacity and the same payload

With the gas reservoirs the boot has a load capacity of 400 (measured in accordance with the VDA In practical terms, this sufficient stowage space for two suitcases plus two smaller cases. The payload capacity of the with its five-speed automatic is 510 kilograms virtually the same as in the E 200

When seen from the the E 200 NGT with bi-fuel drive just the same as any other E-Class saloon. The only is that the fuel filler is somewhat larger, concealing as it not only the familiar filler for the petrol tank but also a filler connection for the natural which has been purpose-designed to safe and convenient refuelling.

halved in natural-gas operating .

Quite apart from the cut in CO2 emissions, running the vehicle on gas also holds economic At the present time, a kilogram of gas costs between 0.80 and in Germany, which translates a cost of between 0.54 and per litre when equated the energy provided by petrol. makes natural gas over 50% cost-effective than premium petrol. Furthermore, a range of incentives – such as tax benefits and by the gas suppliers – is on offer in Germany to with the purchase of natural-gas-powered

Natural gas represents a feasible to petrol and diesel, both an ecological and an economic point of The fact that it is a primary of energy allows it to be used in its state without any conversion Non-toxic and odourless, natural gas is up primarily of methane (CH4), that it contains a lower of carbon than any other fuel. Consequently, CO2 emissions are cut by 20 per cent compared to petrol.

of natural-gas filling stations all the time

Expansion of the filling network in Germany is continuing There are currently more 730 filling stations in Germany natural-gas pumps. Refuelling natural gas is extremely straightforward and no longer than with fuel types. Furthermore, no through evaporation take and no unpleasant odours are produced refuelling.

Natural gas is lighter air. As a result, natural-gas-powered may be driven into multi-storey car and tunnels without any restrictions. signs such as “Entry for compressed-gas-driven motor vehicles” do not to vehicles run on natural gas.
