Driving pleasure and efficiency.
“Driving pleasure and efficiency need not be mutually exclusive. The same is equally true of breathtaking design and world-class aerodynamic drag values. In all four areas the CLA-Class sets the benchmark in the medium-size category”, explains Professor Dr Herbert Kohler, Chief Environmental Officer at Daimler AG. Mercedes-Benz analyses the environmental compatibility of its models throughout their entire life cycle – from production, through their long years of service, to recycling at the end of their lives. This analysis goes far beyond the legal requirements. Over the entire life cycle of the Mercedes CLA-Class – from production and utilisation over 160,000 kilometres through to recycling – the base variant certified by TÜV in the guise of the CLA 180 gives rise to CO2 emissions of around 30 tonnes, which is on a par with the exemplary A-Class.
