Stuttgart – Emitting just 114 grams of CO2 per kilometre, the new E 220 BlueTEC BlueEFFICIENCY Edition also underscores the environmental credentials of the E-Class. The driving dynamics, comfort and pleasure are still as superb as they always were. This special model will be available from Mercedes-Benz partners from September 2013.
The drive system of the E 220 BlueTEC BlueEFFICIENCY Edition uses the Mercedes-Benz four-cylinder diesel engine with direct injection. It is extremely fuel-efficient, but still manages to generate 125 kW (170 hp) with an engine displacement of 2143 cubic centimetres. It also provides staggering torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). Among other things, these qualities can be attributed to the high-tech compression-ignition engine’s fourth-generation common-rail technology. The special model’s drive package also features a 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission that has been optimised with respect to driving comfort and consumption, as well as an ECO start/stop function.
