What can be said about this mechanical set? It’s just that it’s a Mercedes (with all that means): The driver experiences power and responsiveness when called upon (regardless of the regime in which it operates) or is comfortable and nimble for leisurely driving in traffic or on the road (130 km/s). H works below 2000 rpm in eco mode); Meanwhile, the transmission is completely related and the passage of changes is fast and does not show jerks or delays.

loss Consumption is really low, as on average it is around 6.5 L/100 km . demands,

So the interesting thing is to explain How micro-hybrid technology works, Basically and in essence, it consists of a 48 V battery (that is, four times the capacity used in any typical vehicle) and an alternator/generator (ISG). The accumulator produces the energy and the “electric motor” takes care of distributing and managing it to be used in tasks that would normally require fuel consumption (start-stop systems, plan position, air conditioning operation, etc.). Requires and also battery for normal recharging.. but not only that, it is also additional 21 hp . able to produce And add them to the engine for conditions of high demand (an overshoot—the boost function—, a strong acceleration from zero, etc.).

that’s why Performance is excellent: it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6 seconds, accelerates from 80 to 120 km/h in 4.5 (both in game mode) and a . reaches Maximum speed declared by the manufacturer of 250 km/h,

There are exuberant ride comfort and dynamic behavior (Just one detail: being so low, you have to cross the pits and donkey’s back very carefully because it always touches the bottom). Again, this is a Mercedes with all the letters.
