Mercedes Benz has announced the launch of some new engine options for its Mercedes C Class range of cars.
The Mercedes C class comes with a new four-cylinder petrol engines with a belt-driven starter/alternator and an additional 48 volt system and a new 1.6 litre diesel engine.
Electrification continues: A new generation of four-cylinder petrol engines Is being launched in the new C-Class. At the same time these models are equipped with an additional 48-volt on-board network with a belt-driven starter/alternator. The new petrol unit powers the C 200 and C 200 4MATIC (combined fuel consumption: 7.2-6.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 165-144 g/km)3 and has a displacement of 1.5 litres.
The combination of a 48 volt on-board network and EQ Boost creates the conditions for additional functions that help to reduce fuel consumption even further, while improving agility and comfort characteristics. When accelerating, EQ Boost can assist the 135 kW (184 hp) engine with an additional 10 kW (14 hp), bridging the brief moment until the turbocharger has built up its full charge pressure. This boosting is also used to reach the engine’s ideal rpm as quickly as possible during gearshifts. The shift time of the automatic transmission is shortened as a result. During deceleration, the starter/alternator recuperates kinetic energy and charges the battery. The water pump is electrically driven and actuated by a characteristic map. This optimally adapts the cooling output to the current need.
