BlueEFFICIENCY from Mercedes-Benz stands for pioneering efficiency technologies as well as innovative packages of measures for the optimisation of fuel consumption and emission levels.
The BlueEFFICIENCY models of the M-Class
There are three BlueEFFICIENCY models available for the M-Class, all equipped with eco-friendly technologies or extensive special measures: the ML 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC, ML 300 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY and the ML 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY.
Efficiency technologies in the M-Class
BlueTEC catalytic conversion technology uses the reactant AdBlue® to purify exhaust gases. This makes it possible to reduce nitrogen oxides by up to 80%. This clean diesel technology is implemented in the GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC. It already complies with the future EU 6 exhaust emissions standard.
The latest-generation CDI diesel engines display compelling performance characteristics coupled with low consumption levels. Injection pressure has been increased, smoothness of operation enhanced and noise levels optimised, while reduced compression makes for lower emission levels.
Packages of measures in the M-Class
Depending on the engine fitted the BlueEFFICIENCY models of the M-Class are equipped with different features. These are, for instance:
Intelligent energy management, e.g. electrohydraulic power steering
