Three new plug-in hybrid models complete the Mercedes-Benz compact car family: CLA Coupé, CLA Shooting Brake and GLA now with EQ Power

Stuttgart. Mercedes – Benz Cars is continuously expanding its range of plug-in hybrids under the EQ Power label. With the CLA 250 e Coupé (combined fuel consumption 1.5-1.4 l / 100 km, combined CO2 emissions 35-31 g / km, combined power consumption 15.1-15.0 kWh / 100 km) 1 , CLA 250 e Shooting Brake (combined fuel consumption 1.6-1.4 l / 100 km, combined CO2 emissions 37-33 g / km, combined power consumption 15.4-14.8 kWh / 100 km)[1] and GLA 250 e (combined fuel consumption 1.8-1.6 l / 100 km, combined CO2 emissions 42-38 g / km, combined power consumption 16.1-15.5 kWh / 100 km)[2], Mercedes-Benz completes the EQ Power family of compact cars with the third generation hybrid drive system. The new models can be ordered in the spring of this year, with the following market launch a few weeks later.

For new compact vehicles with EQ Power, driving pleasure (electric) and fitness for everyday use are at the forefront. This is illustrated by the strengths of the models:

Electric range from 71 to 79 km (NEDC)
Electric power 75 kW
System power 160 kW
System torque 450 Nm
Charging system with alternating current (AC) up to 7.4 kW
Direct current (DC) charging system at max. 24 kW
Almost no restrictions on the load compartment.
Vehicles belonging to the Mercedes-Benz family of compact cars are fitted with transversely mounted engines. A compact hybrid traction head has been developed for the 8G-DCT dual clutch transmission which follows the same technical principles as the corresponding component on vehicles with a longitudinally installed engine. It is a synchronous machine with permanent excitation as an internal rotor. The stator is permanently integrated in the housing of the traction head, while the low-loss oil bath clutch is incorporated in the motor rotor.
The cooling of the stator and the rotor on demand makes it possible to use the peak and the continuous power of the electric motor without any problem.

For the first time on a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, the combustion engine is started by the electric motor – compact hybrids do not have a separate 12-volt starter.

High system output provides a lot of driving pleasure

The electric machine reaches 75 kW. Combined with the 1.33 liter four-cylinder engine, it produces a system power of 160 kW (218 hp) and a system torque of 450 Nm. Thanks to the EQ power of the electric motor, these vehicles respond very quickly to the accelerator and offer impressive performance: the A 250 e (combined fuel consumption of 1.5 to 1.4 l / 100 km, combined CO2 emissions of 34 to 33 g / km, combined) power consumption of 15.0- 14.8 kWh / 100 km), for example, requires 6.6 seconds for the 0-100 km / h sprint, and its top speed is 235 km / h (see next page for more data).

A high-voltage lithium-ion battery with a total capacity of approx. 15.6 kWh is used as an electrical energy storage unit. The new compact models can be charged with alternating or direct current. A corresponding vehicle outlet is located in the right side wall of vehicles. This means that compact rechargeable hybrids can be charged in a 7.4 kW wall box with alternating current (AC) in 1 h 45 min
10 to 100% SoC (state of charge). For 24 kW direct current (DC) charging, the battery can be charged with 10 to 80% SoC in approximately 25 minutes.

The batteries are supplied by the wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler, Deutsche ACCUMOTIVE. The high voltage battery is water cooled and weighs approximately. 150 kg.

Smart packaging

An innovative exhaust system allows exceptionally intelligent packaging: to allow only a minimal reduction in the boot capacity compared to sister models without hybrid engines, the exhaust ends in an outlet positioned in the center under the vehicle floor , with the rear silencer housed in the transmission tunnel. The integration of the fuel tank into the axle installation space creates additional space under the rear seats for the high-voltage battery.

Compact vehicles are equipped with third generation plug-in technology. Its functions include route-based intelligent operating strategy, taking into account factors such as navigation data, speed limits and the route. The operating strategy takes into account the entire planned route and gives priority to the electric driving mode for the most sensitive route sections in each case.

With the launch of MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience), the previous plug-in modes of operation for all EQ Power models have been converted to driving programs. This means that in each Mercedes-Benz plug-in hybrid, the new “electric” and “battery level” driving programs are available. This is the case from the start for compact models. Maximum e-performance can be experienced in “electric”. The combustion engine is only engaged if the driver uses the kickdown on the accelerator pedal. In the “electric” program, the level of energy recovery can also be selected via paddles behind the steering wheel. The paddles on the steering wheel allow you to select five different recovery levels (DAUTO, D +, D, D- and D–).

Comfort, ECO and Sport modes are also available. According to the given requirements, the driver is thus able to favor electric driving, to favor driving dynamics in combined driving mode or to favor combustion mode in order to save electric autonomy for example.

An important comfort feature is the air conditioning before driving, which can also be easily activated by smartphone. The towing capacity of compact hybrids is impressive at 1600 kg (braked).

90% of daily driving can be done in all-electric mode

With the help of the free EQ Ready app,[7] Mercedes-Benz, available free of charge, has established the average journey time for people interested in electric mobility. The results show that

90% of all journeys are less than 50 kilometers,
96% of all trips are less than 100 kilometers and
99% of all trips are less than 400 kilometers
The range of average distances per journey for those interested varies by market, ranging from just over eight kilometers in Hong Kong to just over 27 kilometers in the Netherlands, where electric mobility is of particular interest. This means that 90% of daily journeys can be made exclusively with electric power with current Mercedes-Benz plug-in models.

Mercedes me Charge helps recharge on the go

In addition to using household food, e.g. on a Mercedes-Benz Wallbox, practical and simple recharging is also possible during the journey. The MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system helps the driver to find charging stations. The MBUX system understands natural speech, allowing the driver to search simply by saying “Hey Mercedes, find nearby charging stations”.

Via Mercedes me Charge, drivers of a plug-in hybrid model can potentially access one of the largest charging networks in the world, with more than 300 different operators in Europe (municipalities, car parks, motorways, shopping centers, etc.) . Through navigation, Mercedes-Benz customers can easily find these stations and easily access charging stations via the Mercedes me Charge card, the Mercedes me app or directly from the car. No separate contract is necessary for this: apart from simple authentication, customers benefit from an integrated payment function with simple invoicing after registering their payment method once. Each billing process is booked automatically. The individual billing processes are clearly listed in a monthly invoice.
