How Does Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® Work?

Hybrid models are now plentiful and popular nearly everywhere one goes. Advanced diesel technology represents a fuel-efficient alternative to increasingly dominant hybrid designs, and with Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC®, you can be sure that you’re getting superior performance along with strong fuel economy.

BlueTEC® engine components reduce emissions and improve performance with:

  • High-pressure fuel injection:This technology directly injects fuel for optimal performance.
  • Variable-vane turbocharger: This type of turbocharger alternates its aspect ratio in response to your speed, maximizing your power output as it changes.
  • AdBlue liquid solution: AdBlue liquid allows dangerous Nitrogen Oxide to be converted into nitrogen and oxygen, elements that won’t harm the environment.

Benefits of BlueTEC®

Although Mercedes-Benz hybrid vehicles offer plenty of power, some drivers may feel more comfortable, and capable, behind the wheel of a BlueTEC® model. A BlueTEC® diesel engine offers an estimated 6-8 mpg increase over a comparable model running on gasoline, often without any compromise on power. What’s more, diesel engines tend to offer exceptional quotients of torque, so you’ll be able to move quickly off the line.
