GLA receives environmental certificate.
Leading the segment.
Progressive in design, serene in day-to-day motoring and with off-road capability – as a wanderer between automotive worlds, the Mercedes-Benz GLA impressively reinterprets the compact SUV segment. It also boasts high environmental compatibility, as has now been confirmed by the neutral inspectors from the TÜV Süd technical inspection authority, who have awarded the GLA-Class from Mercedes-Benz the Environmental Certificate in accordance with ISO standard TR 14062. The award is based on a comprehensive life-cycle assessment of the model series, documenting every detail of relevance for the environment.
Increased use of recycled and natural materials.
“We have already demonstrated with the M- and the GLK-Class that energy efficiency and environmental compatibility are fully reconcilable with a SUV. As one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its segment, the new GLA-Class is now setting benchmarks in the SUV world,” notes 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.
