Daimler AG and Continental “Yellow Angel” award for technology

World-first integration of a battery in a mass-produced passenger car

in the Mercedes-Benz S 400 BlueHYBRID from 2009

Winning application out of 51 from 42 companies

Stuttgart – The (German Automobile Association) has its “Gelber Engel 2009” Angel) to Daimler AG and its systems Continental in the Innovation Environment The Stuttgart carmaker was selected for the by Europe’s largest automobile in recognition of its lithium-ion battery, the such battery ever to be integrated into a production car. The Mercedes-Benz S 400 BlueHYBRID this pioneering technology have its market launch in 2009.

The Stuttgart-based company is the world’s carmaker to successfully adapt technology – currently used in consumer electronics – to the heavy of production passenger cars. AG holds a total of 25 patents collectively facilitated the breakthrough in important technology. A crucial in the company’s success was its groundbreaking of a lithium-ion battery into the air-conditioning circuit. As a result of the battery unit is able to at optimum system temperatures 15-35 C at all times, thus a long service life for use in cars (10 calendar years; charging cycles) coupled maximum efficiency.

Dr. Thomas the member of the Board of Management of AG responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars, accepted the Angel” award together Heinz-Gerhard Wente, member of the of Management of Continental AG responsible for Resources and the ContiTech Division. lithium-ion technology was chosen as the top innovation out of 51 applications from 42 by a jury comprised of experts the ADAC, the German Association of the Industry (VDA), the Association of Vehicle Importers (VDIK) and the Association for Motor Trade and (ZDK). The number of entries was the since the ADAC “Yellow awards were introduced.

World’s lowest CO2 emissions for of vehicle

The innovative battery be launched in the new Mercedes-Benz S 400 BlueHYBRID as as summer 2009. The combination of the V6 engine with the compact module will make the S 400 the world’s most economic luxury saloon. NEDC fuel consumption amounts to 7.9 litres per 100 kilometres, giving figures for CO2 emissions of just 186 per kilometre for this category of and output. In conjunction with an energy management system, the new offers a comprehensive range of characteristics, including a user-friendly function for the petrol engine, effect and regenerative braking.

Compact dimensions and much efficiency

The advantage of the lithium-ion over conventional nickel-metal batteries lies principally in its dimensions combined with greater efficiency. Compared NiMH technology, lithium-ion better energy density by 30 and power-to-weight ratio by 50 percent. they boast a high efficiency and long service Lithium-ion batteries also the lowest environmental impact of all technologies and guarantee a sustainable and feedstock. Their high levels are on a par with those of car batteries.

As Mercedes-Benz’s system partner, the automotive supplier Continental was for software development and overall application. A complex battery system ensures the battery within an optimum operating at all times. The electronics also general functions such as and energy output as compared battery age. Safety prevent the battery from for example, and a ‘cell supervising monitors individual cells so as to optimum interaction. Production of the will be overseen by Continental at a new facility in Nuremberg.

Already a of several awards

In its Innovation category, the ADAC recognises initiatives, projects or innovations in the of road and vehicle safety and protection in road transport and development. Application is open to organisations, institutes and companies. A requirement is that all innovations already been successfully put practice.

In 2006 Mercedes-Benz received the award in the Innovation Environment for the world’s cleanest diesel BlueTEC, achieving the same again in 2007 for its Active Assist for trucks.

“Yellow 2009” were awarded in categories: Car, Brand, Innovation Environment and Personality. are considered one of the most prestigious car awards and looked upon by as valuable yardsticks, since take into account such as price-performance ratio, economic efficiency, safety and compatibility.

Mercedes-Benz finished runner-up in the category for 2009, as it did with the CLK in the category. In the Car category for 2009 the SLK third place, following a place with the C-Class in
