Fuel costs, taxes and the environment are all hot topics at the moment, featuring heavily in the media and a major part of the recent election campaigns.
So maybe all this talk of ‘global warming’, or wincing every time you arrive at the petrol pump has got you wondering if there’s something you can do.
Whether you want to save money or save the world, Mercedes-Benz has a host of eco features and sustainable innovations which might just be the answer.
Not only is Mercedes-Benz recognised as one of the top 10 green fleet manufacturers in the country, but we’ve been using sustainably forested wood and natural products long before it was trendy. But what does this mean for you?
We’ve got some pretty smart features that will save you money every day.
Mercedes-Benz produced the first ever diesel car over 75 years ago and we haven’t stopped there. Where you see the BlueTEC status, you can be confident this is a car that’s full of innovative surprises. With greater fuel economy and higher torque than you might expect from an eco diesel model, BlueTEC is a badge you’ll love to wear.
Why waste the impressive power of your Mercedes-Benz when you don’t need it?
Our ECO start/stop feature will automatically and safely stop your engine when you’re stationary, then start it again when you pull away, saving fuel, emissions and importantly, pounds! Who wants to be paying to be stuck in traffic! It will even make sure the engine stays active if you’re driving in chilly temperatures, so you don’t have to be blue, to be green. All of this without compromising on driving experience. This feature is included on a number of models, including the B-Class and the E-Class.
In fact, it’s not just the ECO start/stop you can enjoy with the E-Class.
No mention of Mercedes eco innovations would be complete without the E 300 BlueTEC hybrid. A double RAC Future Car Challenge winner and title holder of the Most Energy Efficient Luxury Car, this model is certainly best in class. It overshadows alternatives with up to 68.9mpg and emissions of just 107g/km, not to mention a top speed of 150mph and 0-62 in 7.1 seconds; the figures certainly add up.
So why waste time? Book your test drive today and see what all the fuss is about.
