“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”.
