of the high-voltage electric components have been added to the Mercedes-Benz engineers have what they call a safety concept”.

1) All wiring is colour coded and with safety instructions.

2) contact protection via insulation and developed dedicated connectors.

Unlike other petrol-electric which typically use a CVT transmission, the BlueHybrid uses the 7G-TRONIC speed automatic transmission. The motor also functions as a for brake energy regeneration for the ion battery, and a starter for the combustion allowing start-stop ability for fuel savings. The start-stop is switched off in Reverse gear to it from repeatedly turning on and off maneuvers such as parking.
