C-Class awarded Environmental Certificate.
Rigid body - lightly done.
Over the course of its entire life cycle – from its manufacture through 200,000 kilometres of driving to its recycling – the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class produces around 10 percent fewer CO2 emissions than its predecessor. A low drag is also crucial to achieving such outstanding efficiency. With a Cd value of 0.24 for the C 220 BlueTEC BlueEFFICIENCY Edition, the new C-Class Saloon sets a new benchmark in the medium-size category.
Efficient and lively performance.
Professor Dr. Herbert Kohler, Chief Environmental Officer at Daimler AG: “Our engineers have pulled out all the stops in an effort to lower fuel consumption while at the same time further accentuating the car’s sporty character. By employing an intelligent lightweight design with a high proportion of aluminium, for example, it has been possible to make the new C-Class up to 100 kilograms lighter than its predecessor. This means the mass that has to be accelerated and braked is lower, reducing fuel consumption and emissions while at the same time making the saloon more agile.”
The Environmental Certificate and supplementary information are now available in the “Life Cycle” documentation series.
