    Environmental Certificate for the E 350 e.

    The plug-in hybrid E 350 e has successfully completed the TÜV validation audit and received the Environmental Certificate.

    Fuel consumption combined: 2.5–2.1 l/100 km;
    combined CO₂ emissions: 57–49 g/km;
    Power consumption weighted: 14.0–11.5 kWh/100 km.*

TÜV validation audit completed.

The plug-in hybrid E 350 e has successfully completed the TÜV validation audit and received the Environmental Certificate. This award is based on a Life Cycle Assessment in which the independent experts at TÜV Süd (the German Technical Inspection Authority) comprehensively assess the environmental impact of the passenger car over its entire life cycle. The E 350 e shines with an NEDC fuel consumption figure of 2.1 litres per 100 kilometres; however, it also scores top marks in other areas besides driving.

Holistic analysis.

In a holistic analysis the experts additionally calculate into the equation the CO2 emissions from the manufacturing and recovery phase. This analysis reveals around 44 % lower CO2 emissions than the previous E 350 CGI model, which has comparable performance data and a conventional engine, during its life cycle (material manufacture, production, driving for 250,000 kilometres calculated with certified consumption figures and recycling) when the hybrid model is charged externally with the European energy mix. If the calculation is based on the use of renewable energy for external charging, the CO2 emissions can be reduced by as much as 63 %.

Significantly better ecological balance.

“The Plug-in hybrid is a good example of how a transparent analysis of the entire life cycle is required to show and evaluate the environmental impact in its entirety,” says Anke Kleinschmit, Head of Research and Chief Environmental Officer for the Daimler Group. “With these analyses, we go way beyond the statutory requirements. They also enable us to prove that the naturally higher use of resources in production is more than compensated by the significantly better ecological balance when driving, meaning that the overall Life Cycle Assessment is improved, too.”

In the E 350 e, the combination of the 9G-TRONIC plug-in hybrid transmission and the latest generation of electric motors ensures top marks for fuel consumption, ride comfort and dynamics. The new power electronics have allowed further increases in the electric motor’s output and torque to 65 kW (88 hp) and 440 Nm respectively. The E 350 e has a system output of 210 kW (286 hp) and a torque of 550 Nm.

Up to 33 kilometres without emissions.

Further improvements to the intelligent operating strategy also increase the efficiency. Up to 33 kilometres of emission-free driving is possible in the executive saloon, depending on the individual driving profile and the ambient conditions. Further details about the Environmental Certificate can be found in the “Life Cycle” documents available for download.

The plug-in Hybrid Mercedes-Benz C 350 e has been awarded with the official environmental certificate.

Environmental certificate for the Mercedes-Benz C 350 e.

The new documentation “Life Cycle COMPACT” is now available for the C 350 e.

Fuel consumption combined: 2.4–2.1 l/100 km;

combined CO₂ emissions: 55–48 g/km;

power consumption weighted: 11.7–11.0 kWh/100 km.*

The inevitably more intensive use of resources in production of the C 350 e is more than compensated for by the significantly better eco-balance during operation

“Ecobalance more than compensated.”

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 useful lives. This analysis goes far beyond the legal requirements. “The Plug-In Hybrid of the C-Class is a great example of why only the comprehensive view shows a complete image of the environmental impact”, said Anke Kleinschmit, Chief Environmental Officer of the Daimler Group. “Because the inevitably more intensive use of resources in production is more than compensated for by the significantly better eco-balance during operation”.

Dynamic and efficiency on an extraordinarily high level.

As a Plug-In Hybrid, the new Mercedes-Benz C 350 e combines efficiency, dynamic spirit and comfort on an extraordinarily high level. Both the saloon and the estate model captivate with the performance of a sports car while nonetheless delivering a certified fuel consumption of just 2.4–2.1 litres per 100 kilometres (55–48 g CO₂/km) and up to 31 kilometres of all-electric driving.

Both the saloon and the estate model are equipped with air suspension and pre-entry climate control as standard, delivering a unique level of ride quality and climate comfort.

Life Cycle COMPACT.

The “Life Cycle” brochure has been presenting the environmental certificates since 2009. The simultaneously published issue “Life Cycle COMPACT” is brand-new and now for the first time available for the C 350 e. This compact overview illustrates the high level of environmental compatibility of the Mercedes-Benz vehicles during the entire life cycle in an easy-to-understand way and also gets right to the heart of Daimler’s environmental commitment.

The Life Cycle COMPACT is available for the Mercedes-Benz C 350 e for the first time.

The Life Cycle COMPACT is now available for download.
