Mercedes-Benz Plug-in hybrid - Myth 3

A plug-in hybrid is too complicated for everyday life. Here too, we can prove the opposite, driving an E 300 and Station Wagon: a practical and easy to use car. The key words are his ability to predict what is happening in driving and an intelligent intervention logic. The test took place on a 72 km route, in 'Comfort' travel mode with the navigator set to the destination. The remaining electric range was 27 km, with the battery at 60% charge. Driving in the city was electric only. Upon entering the motorway, the internal combustion engine started and, thanks to the intelligent navigation system, the operating system knew that 52 km were missing from the finish. For this, he entered the conservative mode of the remaining energy, to use it on his return to the city. Approaching a car in front of us at a slower pace on the highway, the system detected it and as soon as you lifted your foot from the gas, the car decelerated, entering energy recovery mode. On an out-of-town road, the system manages the two engines, endothermic and electric, in the most efficient way, automatically and relaxing for the driver. The same thing happens with speed limit signs. As soon as they are spotted and the driver lifts his foot, the system brakes the car until it reaches the limit, recovering energy to recharge the battery. An intelligent, predictive system that immediately becomes familiar with the driver, guaranteeing relaxed and rational driving
