Mercedes-Benz Plug-in-hybrid - Myth 1
Is it possible that a Mercedes plug-in hybrid consumes an average of 1.4 liters per 100 km, which is equivalent to over 71 km / liter ...? It seems impossible, but it's true! During a test drive carried out by the Mercedes-Benz research and development department, 100 km non-stop were covered, measuring the fuel and electricity consumption of an A 250 and EQ BOOST Plug-in Hybrid. This car is approved for an electric range of 70 km only. At the start, with the battery charged, it showed a range of 52 km based on the driving style and pace of the previous trip. After 22 km traveled, only electrically, without the petrol engine ever starting, the range was 41 km with 71% charge. Electricity consumption at this normal pace is 13 kW / h. At km 69, with the battery almost flat, the petrol engine starts moving around the city of Stuttgart. This means that, by driving normally, traveling up to 69 km a day and recharging the car at the electrical outlet every day, you can always drive electrically, without consuming a single drop of petrol. At km 93, consumption is exactly 1.4 liters and 11 kW per 100 km. Therefore, by driving the car normally for 93 km, the declared fuel consumption is easily obtained. At the end of the test, after 112 km, the consumption was 11 kW and 2.11 l per 100 km equal to 47 km / liter. The key is to recharge energy. The more often we reload, the less we consume. But the declared values are within everyone's reach
The Mazda CX-3 is a small SUV whose bold, edgy Kodo looks attract widespread appeal rather than polarising, whose go-anywhere flexibility is crossover at its best, and whose driving dynamics channel the spirit of the MX-5 roadster. Lightweight Skyactiv Technology gives the vehicle an unmatched liveliness on the road yet remarkable sophistication for its class. It’s smart, too, dynamically sending the clean diesel or petrol power where it is needed on all-wheel drive models. The optimised version of G-Vectoring Control – Mazda’s clever torque vectoring system – adds extra stability while also preventing driver fatigue. Numerous available features like the MZD Connect multimedia system, full-colour head-up display, and state-of-the-art active safety technology such as the newest editions of Advanced Smart City Brake Support (Advanced SBCS) and Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) only add distinct value to an already attractive package. Together with the ergonomic interior and subtly upscale furnishings, it’s a genuine all-rounder.
