The new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is now the most powerful variant in the completely revamped product line, combining a 420 kW (571 PS; Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid models: Fuel consumption combined 2.8 – 2.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 63 – 62 g/km; electricity consumption combined 22.8 – 21.8 kWh/100 km (as of 10/2020)), four-litre biturbo V8 with a 100 kW (136 PS) electric motor. Its all-electric range has been increased by up to 30 per cent thanks to a new 17.9 kWh battery and optimised driving modes. This also applies to the new Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, where the electric motor is complemented as before by a 243 kW (330 PS; Panamera 4 E-Hybrid models: Fuel consumption combined 2.3 – 2.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 51 – 47 g/km; electricity consumption combined 18.2 – 17.0 kWh/100 km (as of 10/2020)) 2.9-litre biturbo V6, resulting in a system power output of 340 kW (462 PS). The Panamera portfolio is rounded off by the 4S, which delivers 324 kW (440 PS; Panamera 4S models: Fuel consumption combined 9.2 – 8.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 210 – 202 g/km (as of 10/2020)) and also benefits from all the optimised features of the latest model enhancement in terms of chassis, design, equipment and infotainment.
Mercedes-Benz GenH2 Truck - Modular ePowertrain for different markets and segments
As part of its global platform strategy with the ePowertrain, Daimler Trucks is also using a globally standardized basic architecture for fully electric trucks. In a first step, the technological core is the integrated electric drive, the so-called eDrive. This comes in the form of a so-called eCarrier concept, i. H. an e-axis with one or two integrated electric motors including gearbox. The eDrive - an in-house development by the Daimler experts - offers numerous advantages compared to concepts with a central motor. The more compact design enables a larger installation space for a higher installable battery capacity, which has a positive effect on the range. The high battery capacity also ensures a high level of power transfer to the e-axis and thus allows continuous power development. The recuperation potential also increases due to the combination of a large battery with very powerful electric motors. The eDrive is to find its way into various vehicles at Daimler Trucks in the medium and heavy segment around the world - whether with purely battery-electric or hydrogen-based fuel cell drives. The eDrive is designed as a family of drives made up of different variants. The first of these celebrates its premiere in the series version of the Mercedes-Benz eActros. Within a modular system, the eDrive can be tailored to the market, segment and vehicle type. "
