To support the shift away from fossil fuel powered vehicles to more sustainable alternatives, our eMobility range is growing year on year with a range of choice in hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
100% Electric (Battery Electric Vehicle) – EQ
By 2022, the Mercedes-Benz and smart will offer 10 pure battery electric vehicles (Battery Electric Vehicle) across all segments. The first of which will arrive in 2019; the EQC. The new generation of electric vehicles is based on an architecture developed specifically for battery-electric models. Locally emission-free driving is possible at all times, with extensive range possible from a single charge.
Hybrid Assist (Hybrid) - EQ Boost
Some of our vehicles benefit from EQ Boost technology, which feature a 48 volt integrated starter generator/motor alongside a combustion engine, this offers a better acceleration performance, lower emissions and improved efficiency. The EQ Boost system acts as both a starter motor and a “hybrid assist” motor. Though you do not plug-in to recharge the battery, the system recuperates energy from slowing down or braking for example.
Plug-in Hybrid (PHEVs) - EQ Power & EQ Power+
Mercedes-Benz vehicles with EQ Power branding are plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), featuring either a petrol or diesel powertrain combined with a HV battery and electric motor. All-electric locally emission free driving is possible, as well as a hybrid mode, offering maximum efficiency. Our next generation of EQ Power models will offer state-of-the-art technology with even greater electric only range.
