The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class - Cultivated power for efficient propulsion

Source: AutoMotoTV (Glomex)

The engines of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class come from the Mercedes-Benz portfolio and are partly electrically assisted. Electrification is provided by a second-generation Integrated Starter-Generator (ISG). This provides a boost of up to 15 kW, supports efficient "sailing" while driving at a constant speed, makes the start-stop experience even more comfortable and the drive more efficient overall. All-wheel drive is always standard. The 9G-TRONIC transmission has been further developed for the adaptation of the ISG. The electric motor, the power electronics and the transmission cooler have now been moved into or onto the transmission. In connection with the ISG, the entire two-part belt drive could be omitted because an electric refrigerant compressor is used. Thus the interior can be air-conditioned efficiently and comfortably even when the engine is not running (start-stop and sailing phases). An exhaust system with Otto Particulate Filter (OPF) is used to clean the exhaust gases, which is adapted to the drive. Pressure and temperature sensors as well as lambda sensors of the latest design ensure efficient exhaust gas purification throughout the entire characteristic map.
