Environmentally-compatible concepts

BlueEFFICIENCY from Mercedes-Benz stands for pioneering efficiency technology as well as innovative packages of measures based on optimising fuel consumption and emission levels.

Equipment availability depends on the engine and configuration selected. You will find details in the equipment information for each model.

BlueEFFICIENCY measures

BlueEFFICIENCY measures are comprehensive vehicle optimisations that help save fuel and ease the burden on the environment. In the new C-Class Coupé, too, the most efficient engines were combined with the optimal features in each case to minimise fuel consumption.

These include:

ECO start/stop function

What's the easiest way to save fuel and reduce emission levels? By having the engine automatically switched off whenever it's not needed. Engine off when the vehicle is stationary, the engine switches on again when the brake is released or the accelerator pedal is depressed.

Automatically switching off the engine when stationary, for example in tailbacks or at traffic lights, lowers fuel consumption and emissions and saves fuel costs. The ECO start/stop function operates particularly effectively, quickly and quietly.

Environmental compatibility and recyclability

Great importance was attached to using materials in the new C-Class Coupé that are low on emissions and recyclable, right from the early development stages. The new C-Class Coupé achieves a materials recycling level of 85 percent and recoverability of 95 percent according to the ISO 22628 calculation model.

Examples of environmentally materials and processes include:

  • Energy-saving, highly durable LED technology for numerous lighting functions both outside the vehicle and in the interior as well
  • Innovative painting procedures for minimum environmental impact
  • Increased use of recyclable components
  • Use of materials with very good recycling characteristics and low emissions during production, processing and use

Allergy-friendly vehicle

For many years now, Mercedes-Benz has given great importance to the air quality in the vehicle interior as well as the allergy-friendliness of the components and materials used. For that reason Mercedes-Benz is the only vehicle manufacturer in the world to have been awarded the Seal of Quality of the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF).
