    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.

V8 biturbo with twin-scroll turbochargers.

The versatile AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine in the E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate takes peak output to a new level at 450 kW (612 PS). The maximum torque of 850 Nm is likewise a new high. It is available over a broad engine speed range of 2,500 to 4,500 rpm and so provides a feeling of effortless superiority in every accelerator pedal position. The E 63 4MATIC+ Estate is rated at 420 kW (571 PS) and has 750 Nm of torque.

The S version completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, the E 63 4MATIC+ in 3.6 seconds. Twin-scroll turbochargers are installed for the first time to further enhance the performance and response of the AMG 4.0-litre V8 engine. They reduce the exhaust gas backpressure and optimise the gas cycle, resulting in higher output, exceptionally spontaneous response and higher torque at low revs.

AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive.

Both estate models come with the innovative AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all‑wheel-drive system fitted as standard. This newly engineered, intelligent system brings together the advantages of various drive configurations: torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which is fully variable for the first time, ensures optimum traction on any surface. The driver can rely on a high level of handling safety.

An electromechanically controlled coupling connects the permanently driven rear axle variably to the front axle. The best possible torque distribution is calculated continuously. The performance estate can thus be driven in a continuously variable way from traction-oriented all-wheel drive to purely rear-wheel drive. In addition to traction and lateral dynamics, the all-wheel-drive system also improves the longitudinal dynamics for even more powerful acceleration.

Maximum lateral and longitudinal dynamics.

The agility and the high cornering speeds of the new models are down to the all‑new AMG suspension with full-support multi-chamber air suspension, which ensures exceptionally high levels of chamber stability, driving dynamics and steering precision. A four-link front axle design uses forged aluminium components with wishbones, strut rod and spring link. Independent wheel control and wheel suspension parts enable higher lateral acceleration, but minimal torque steer on the steering system. The likewise model-specific, completely redesigned rear axle was specially adapted to the higher vehicle dynamics. The suspension thus ensures hallmark E-Class comfort with high levels of precision and driving dynamics.

Every detail of the exterior is designed to enable AMG Driving Performance to be experienced at first hand from every perspective. The distinctive, sporty design of the front end forward of the A-pillar demonstrates the lengths AMG goes to when it comes to development. More powerful-looking and 27 millimetres wider, the wheel arches accommodate the greater track width and the larger wheels on the front axle.

The side sill panels make the estate appear to sit lower on the road and elongate the overall line, culminating in a muscular rear end with an apron insert sporting a diffuser look and the two high-gloss chrome-plated twin tailpipe trims of the exhaust system. The hallmark AMG V8 sound has been tuned specifically for the Estate model.

The interior reinforces the consistently dynamic bias with numerous specially designed details. The AMG performance steering wheel in black nappa leather is ideal for a sporty driving style. The driver and front passenger enjoy a secure position in the front sports seats, whatever the driving style, thanks to the improved lateral support. AMG performance seats with integral head restraints can be ordered as an option. All of the important information appears within the driver’s field of vision on the AMG instrument cluster. Dials in a carbon-fibre look and the distinctive typography lend the displays an especially sporty touch. The widescreen multifunction display with two monitors comes as standard in the S version, otherwise it is available as an option. With the widescreen display, the driver can choose from three display designs unique to AMG: Classic, Sport and Progressive.

Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate (S 213): The world premiere of the two performance estate models will be at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017.

Premiere: Geneva Motor Show 2017.

For improved traction and vehicle dynamics, the E 63 4MATIC+ Estate has a mechanical rear-axle limited-slip differential, while the S model comes with an electronically controlled version. The greatest benefit of the electronic rear-axle limited-slip differential is the even more sensitive and proactive control. The large-sized high-performance compound braking system is reliable, quick and fade-resistant, even under high loads.

Both models feature electromechanical speed-sensitive sports steering with a variable ratio, which impresses thanks to the rack ratio with precise and authentic feedback. The world premiere of the two performance estate models will be at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. Sales release is in April 2017, with the market launch scheduled to start in June 2017.
