For more information on the Mercedes Benz check out www.eurocarnews.com Development engineers have devised individual packages tailor-made for each vehicle segment. The objective is to find the best solution for each individual vehicle model. Under the BlueEFFICIENCY label, Mercedes-Benz has developed a package of various fuel economic measures, which will be rolled out through the entire Mercedes-Benz model range. It encompasses optimization of weight, aerodynamics, rolling resistance, energy management and powertrain. A good example of this is the Mercedes-Benz C 180 KOMPRESSOR equipped with a four-cylinder gasoline engine. While its predecessor had a capacity of 1.8 liters, the engine displacement in the new model has been reduced to 1.6 liters. While power and torque output have been maintained at the same levels (156 hp, 230 Nm), fuel consumption has been reduced by 0.9 liters to 6.5 liters per 100 km, in combination with other initiatives such as the new electric ECO steering systemand decreased rolling resistance. CO2 emissions are down by over 20 grams per kilometer - from 177 to 156 grams per kilometer. Overall, BlueEFFICIENCY initiatives can reduce fuel consumption by up to twelve percent. The potential of such initiatives shows the fact, that when it comes to fuel savings - in Germany, the C 180 KOMPRESSOR and the C 200 CDI hold a combined share of C-Class sales of 25 percent.
