BlueEFFICIENCY from Mercedes-Benz stands for pioneering efficiency technologies as well as innovative packages of measures based on optimising fuel consumption and emission levels.
The BlueEFFICIENCY models in the B-Class
For the B-Class there are three BlueEFFICIENCY models available which are equipped with environmentally friendly technologies and extensive special measures: B 160 BlueEFFICIENCY, B 180 BlueEFFICIENCY and B 180 NGT BlueEFFICIENCY.
Efficiency technologies in the B-Class
The B 180 NGT BlueEFFICIENCY can run on both natural gas and petrol. Natural Gas Technology (NGT) has proven to be a low-emission and economical alternative.
Packages of measures in the B-Class
Depending on the engine installed, the BlueEFFICIENCY models are equipped with a series of different measures. These are for instance:
Intelligent energy management, e.g. alternator output control based on current requirements
Tyres optimised for rolling resistance
ECO start/stop function, which switches the engine off when in neutral and thus saves fuel
