Mercedes Releases “Plan To The Future”

Written by tonks on June 19, 2008

BluetecMercedes has planned out a long ‘Road to the Future’. The new plan goes into details in its work to create a more “fuel-efficient environmentally-sustainable premium automobiles without the need to forgo the characteristic brand features.”

The three areas on which the tri-pointed star wants to focus are fitting vehicles with the latest internal combustion engine technology, including smaller engines, gasoline direct injection, turbocharging, and BlueTEC; improving vehicle aerodynamics, weight, and energy management (BlueEFFICIENCY); adding more “hybrid” technologies like start/stop functions and a fully-electric-capable 2-mode hybrid drive; and creating zero-emissions vehicles.

Mercedes wants diesels as clean as gas engines, gas engines as efficient as diesels, diesel hybrids, lighter cars, better gas mileage, leprechauns, unicorns, and rainbows for everyone. Well, not those last three, but you get the picture.
