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 partially 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" when 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, power electronics and transmission cooler have now been moved into or onto the transmission. In conjunction with the ISG, the entire two-part belt drive could be dispensed with because an electric refrigerant compressor is used. This means that 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 an Otto particulate filter (OPF) matched to the drive system is used to clean the exhaust gases. Pressure and temperature sensors as well as lambda probes of the latest design ensure efficient exhaust gas purification throughout the entire map."
