Sprinter now also with hybrid drive

April 4, Mercedes-Benz has always been at the of the development environment- and resource-friendly systems and has explored natural LPG, electric propulsion and cell technologies in recent This pioneering position be further enhanced this when it becomes the first to offer a plug-in hybrid-drive of its Sprinter commercial van. means that the vehicle is with a power socket enables the batteries to be recharged when the engine is not running, for overnight. A hybrid-drive Sprinter no recharging socket is also

In the hybrid-drive Sprinter (with or a recharging socket) an electric is integrated into the drive between the transmission and clutch. It its energy from a nickel/metal battery which it constantly when on the move, acting as a and using the energy produced braking or on downhill gradients The basic vehicle is a Sprinter 311 CDI t GVW, kerb weight kg) with an automatic transmission.

A hybrid-drive van can provide zero-emission, quiet operation when in towns and other emissions-sensitive Other advantages include an operating range thanks to the com-bustion engine, familiar which is largely the same as for a vehicle and a high level of safety. Last not least, the is rewarded with a reduction in fuel consumption of between 10% and 50% on the type of operation.

Plug-in hybrid drive a 70 kW electric motor

Since the two units – the internal combustion and the electric motor — are configured in parallel, the hybrid can be optimally operated to suit the emission-free, low-noise operation in areas (city, warehouses) pure electrical power and hybrid operation by supporting the combustion engine with power at low speeds and when When the accelerator is fully for maximum performance, both units operate together. so-called boost function is when more performance is for acceleration or on uphill gradients. normal operation the driver is to select the required drive at the push of a button.

In the plug-in hybrid drive in the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, an electric with an output of 70 kW is combined the conventional diesel engine. It its energy from a nickel/metal (NiMH) battery with a of 14 kWh. This allows an range of up to 30 kilometres under electric propulsion. The battery is from the mains power e.g. overnight, with a time of approximately six hours. The generated when braking is used to recharge the battery.

disaster relief organisations or the services can also use the 40 kW electric in the Sprinter with plug-in drive as a generator to operate and machinery while in the field. The electrical equipment weighs 350 kg. If batteries are used in place of the batteries, the weight penalty is to 160 kg.

Hybrid drive with a 30 kW motor

The Sprinter with drive and no recharging socket has a electric motor with an of 30 kW and smaller batteries with a of only 3 kWh. These purely electric operation a range of 3 to 4 km, which is perfectly for almost all pedestrian areas. The weight of this simpler is approx. 100 kg.

Government subsidies

at the overall picture, it cannot be that as a result of the second unit, hybrid drive has penalties in terms of payload and price. That said, nine EU countries are already incentives for the purchase of hybrid e.g. preferential taxation or as well as tax relief on the operation of vehicles. In London, for example, or hybrid drive vehicles are exempt from road charges.

In view of expected, increasingly emissions regulations, restrictions on to inner city areas, and vehicle taxes, and with the aim of fuel consumption in general, form of drive system is in worldwide importance. Hybrid with its combination of well-proven i.e. the internal combustion and the electric motor, is ideally to bridge the interim period the fuel cell reaches production maturity.

Customer trials of the Mercedes-Benz with plug-in hybrid will commence within the few months.
