Mercedes-Benz Reporter Torie takes a look into the future of mobility at the i-Mobility fair in Stuttgart. She explores the various E-Mobility systems and technology Mercedes-Benz is offering already. And while taking part in the i-Mobility Rallye with the B 250 e she finds out that the future is closer than we think.
B 250 e:
combined CO₂ emissions: 0 g/km;
Power consumption weighted: 17.9-16.6 kWh/100km.*
The Remote Parking Pilot allows the vehicle to be moved into and out of garages and parking spaces remotely using a smartphone app, enabling the occupants to get into and out of the car easily, even if space is very tight.
Thanks to the optional Driving Assistance package, the new E-Class is taking the next step on the road to autonomous driving. Here you can find out about the highlights of the DRIVE PILOT and gain an insight into the future functions of the system. The E-Class is the world’s first standard-production vehicle to be granted a test licence for autonomous driving in the state of Nevada in the USA where, for the first time and appropriately to coincide with the leading trade fair for entertainment electronics, the “CES” in Las Vegas, three E-Class models have been approved. Since the standard version is already comprehensively equipped with a host of intelligent technology, for test purposes only some slight software modifications need to be made to the DRIVE PILOT, which were implemented in the standard-fit Intelligent Drive Controller.
Prototypes such as the F 015 Luxury in Motion or the Future Truck 2025 show that the conditions for autonomous driving are already well established. Also demonstrations of our intelligent Highway Pilot in the Freightliner Inspiration Truck in Nevada (USA) have proven that it is ready for autonomous driving on public roads.
