Mercedes To Offer Turbocharged Engines In 2010

Written by tonks on July 19, 2008

MercedesThe Mercedes head of Daimler AG’s development and research – Thomas Weber – has released the news that they are working towards the goal of offering turbocharged engines for the whole line-up by 2010.

Unlike Mercedes-Benz’s current supercharged engines, these turbocharged motors won’t be built in the name of performance, but rather to meet upcoming emission standards. Not only does the automaker have to worry about the new CAFE mandate in the U.S., but also new legislation in Europe that will require Daimler to cut its average fleet emissions by 33 percent by 2012.
