Mercedes-Benz to Produce Hybrid Lithium Ion Battery

March 4,

Late last week unveiled plans for the S400 which, unless someone jumps in first. will be the production automotive hybrid in the to use a lithium ion battery. We first the concept in September, but now more have become available. The will be powered by a 3.5 Liter V-6 gas and a 15KW electric generator/motor. In models shown previously, the ion battery (which is significantly than the nickel-metal hydride batteries hybrids currently was small enough to be mounted so that it doesn’t intrude on space. This has several including enabling engineers to the battery with the vehicle control system to regulate its ensuring

optimal performance.

Of course, given that the is a large, heavy, powerful even with the lithium drivetrain the BlueHybrid will not be the efficient vehicle on the road. what kind of mileage it get? Find out after the to a European standard for measuring economy, known as the New European Cycle (which averages and highway driving) the BlueHybrid get 29.8 miles per gallon. Of a Toyota Yaris. which is far expensive, gets 40 miles per on a non-hybrid drivetrain. Still, the is the flagship of the Mercedes lineup, so great to see improvements in its efficiency. And yet, this vehicle actually be available to consumers (at those that will be to produce its undoubtedly hefty tag) in calendar 2009 in

both North America and along with the ML450 The ML450 also uses the V-6 but it’s combined with the hybrid system. More models using the mild will be launched eventually as including diesel hybrids.

The real innovation here is the of lithium ion battery technology in the Until now, lithium ion have dominated the consumer market, but difficulties in adapting to the rigors of automotive applications forced manufacturers to stick NIMH batteries. With already producing pure vehicles with the lighter and efficient batteries, and Mercedes and about to roll out hybrids make use of them, it won’t be before we’ll see them more widely in automotive
