Mercedes continues building fuel efficient cars

Muamer Hodzic February 21, 2007

Most people who drive luxury cars have so much money that they don’t care how much their precious car consumes. Nevertheless, Mercedes is trying to make their cars as fuel efficient as possible. More than 38 percent of all new Mercedes cars sold in Europe consume fewer than 6.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. And one in five new Mercedes-Benz cars has a fuel consumption of no more than around five liters per 100 kilometers. Mercedes-Benz currently offers a total of eleven passenger-car models whose average consumption is between just 4.9 and 6.5 liters per 100 kilometers.

  1. How does this work? Is this a new thing cause to my understanding and experience, Mercedes is very heavy on fuel, and well known for that fact. 5liter / 100km?

  2. I am not clear myself on details or what they changed, but I assume this is for the newest MB models that have a new generation of engines. Yes, Mercedes is known for heavy fuel consumptions, but as time goes on, engines are becoming more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly. So basically it is no ground braking technology, but just the evolution of the engine to become more fuel efficient.
