The C-Class 300 h Saloon. The premium vehicle in the executive segment.

The C-Class 300 h Saloon impresses with its responsibly-minded drive technology.

Like for the S-Class, Mercedes-Benz offers a diesel engine combined with a hybrid module for the new C-Class. In this case, the 4-cylinder diesel engine is paired with a compact electric motor from the hybrid modular system. The C-Class 300 h Saloon has a combined output of 170 kW (231 hp) – 20 kW of which is contributed by the electric motor in the hybrid module, drawing its power from a 0.8 kWh battery which is also charged by recuperation in overrun mode while en route. For the first few meters after setting off and up to a speed of 35 km/h, the C 300 h runs on electric power alone. Only after this is the common-rail diesel engine activated. One particularly impressive aspect of the interaction between engine and motor is the combined torque of 600 Nm – with 250 Nm of this total being provided by the hybrid module. This enhanced agility increases safety and driving pleasure, particularly when overtaking and accelerating. Efficiency-enhancing measures include the standard-fit ECO start/stop function and intelligent drive system management for an anticipatory powertrain operating strategy.

The S-Class 300 h. Luxury saloon with fuel consumption on a par with a compact car.

Consumes just 4.3 l/100 km in the combined cycle*.

Like the S-Class 400 h, S-Class 300 h. impresses in every respect. As is the case with the C-Class and E-Class, the S 300 h features a 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine rated at 150 kW (204 hp) paired with a powerful hybrid module. Its electric motor. The 20 kW electric motor is installed between the internal combustion engine and the automatic transmission and assists the diesel engine when the car is accelerating, creating the dynamic boost effect. In addition to this, the electric motor acts as an alternator to recuperate energy, also allowing driving on electric power alone. Outstanding aerodynamics, intelligent lightweight construction, tires with low rolling resistance and a raft of other measures make the S 300 h even more efficient.

Hybrid vehicles reduce fuel consumption and increase driving enjoyment thanks to intelligent use of kinetic energy.

In the hybrid drive system, the electric motor assists the internal combustion engine when starting off (start/stop function) or when 'gliding', for example. The battery is charged in overrun mode or during braking (recuperation). Short distances or parking maneuvers can be completed on electric power alone.
  • Reduces fuel consumption.
  • Charges the battery with kinetic energy during recuperation.
  • Extra boost, e.g. for overtaking.

Comfort, exceptional efficiency or sport: The vehicle lets you choose from the following drive modes:

Drive mode E (Economy): 

 

Comfort-oriented, consumption-optimized driving style, the electric drive is used as often as possible. The ECO start/stop function is available.

 

Drive mode S (Sport): 

 

Sporty driving style with boost effect
- the internal combustion engine is always running.

The anticipatory operating strategy ensures that the lithium-ion HV battery is only ever charged to a level that allows the utilization of every recuperation opportunity offered by the road's course and the terrain.

 

In practice this means: the electric motor assists the petrol engine when driving uphill, thus lowering fuel consumption. The lithium-ion HV battery is recharged by the resulting recuperation energy when driving downhill. After all, anyone who drives uphill will in most cases then drive downhill, too. It's actually quite simple. But no less fascinating how the anticipatory operating strategy makes such clever use of this simple situation:

 

The COMAND Online system's data are used to precisely calculate when electrical energy can be best utilized or recovered – it therefore makes sense to utilize the extra boost provided by the electric motor when driving uphill and to discharge the battery. And then recharge it again by means of recuperation when driving downhill as the brakes have to be used in any case. What's more, the system does all of this for you, so no active involvement is required on your part. 

Electric and partially electric mobility is not just good for the environment and climate. It also greatly enhances comfort for you and your passengers.

 

Mercedes-Benz pre-entry climate control sets the optimum feel-good temperature in the interior – before you even get into the vehicle. This is possible thanks to the impressive energy capacity of the lithium-ion HV batteries. A total of three different kinds of pre-entry climate control offer an exceptionally high level of comfort.

 

In the case of pre-entry climate control via the vehicle key (electric drive, plug-in hybrid and, in some cases, hybrid drive), preheating or pre-cooling of the interior starts as soon as the vehicle is unlocked. The "pre-entry climate control via vehicle key" function is activated or deactivated in the on-board computer for this purpose.

 

In the electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, you also have the option of activating pre-entry climate control at your departure time or straight away.

 

Pre-entry climate control at the departure time (electric drive, plug-in hybrid) can be activated regardless of whether the vehicle is connected to a charging station or not. In this way, the vehicle can be preheated or pre-cooled to the desired interior temperature at the desired departure time via the instrument cluster or Mercedes me connect.

 

Immediate pre-entry climate control (electric drive, plug-in hybrid) ensures that the interior temperature is keptc onstant, even if there is a break in the journey of up to 50 minutes, providing the lithium-ion HV battery has sufficient charge.
