EQ – electric-Mercedes-Benz study. Diesel cars but more.
The car manufacturer Daimler is holding, in spite of the discussion around a possible ban of up to 2030, in internal combustion engines. You use aware of not a single form of propulsion, but on a co-existence of petrol engines, diesel engines, Plug-in hybrids, battery and hydrogen drives, said development chief Thomas Weber, speaking to journalists in Sindelfingen. “All of the above forms of propulsion have their permission, and opportunities for the future.”
how Much money Daimler in its new electric-brand EQ, and leaves the group so far. According to the manager magazine group boss Dieter Zetsche calculated on the basis of up to 1.5 billion euros a year.
Officially, however, is: The group is investing billions in the development of new Diesel and petrol engines. Three billion euros, the group has invested in the development of new engines, said the head of the Department of drive technology, Bernhard salvation.
Of the three billion Euro to 1.1 billion Euro in the development of Diesel and 1.9 billion euros in the 2017 planned remake of the petrol engines, so healing. In addition, there is a need for about 1.5 billion euros for the conversion of production to the already existing diesel engines. A amount of “a similar magnitude” would be needed for the Change of the production on gasoline engines, so healing. With additional 600 million euros in new test rigs and development facilities to be built at the Sindelfingen plant.
The new engine range of Four – and six-cylinder will initially come in the S-class. Daimler puts you to a time in the according to the above prohibitions of the combustion engine is discussed. The Green-Federal Board penetrates in an application for the party Congress at the end of November on a approval ban of petrol and Diesel by 2030. In the opinion of the Federal Council, the EU Commission asked how, with the help of taxes beginning in 2030, emission-free mobility.
“internal combustion engines will continue to play an important role,” said Heil. The Stuttgart-based car group relies primarily on hybrid engines that combine different drive trains. In 2017, ten models will be a Hybrid available. So far, Daimler only offers the Smart and the B-class as a pure electric variants. Until 2019, the first pure electric vehicle to come under the new brand EQ on the market. By 2025, the Stuttgart want to offer more than ten pure electric vehicles.
the new internal combustion engines are designed to be supplemented with electric technology. “That’s enough, everything Foreseeable to meet,” said healing with a view to possible tightening of the CO2 limits in the EU in the coming years. By 2021, the Stuttgart need to trim its Fleet to 100 grams of CO2 per kilometre. In 2015, the value was 124 grams. “We come to about 2021 and beyond.”
The manufacturer must reckon with tougher limits, when from 2017, new emission tests (WLTP) will be introduced. The limits of the previously valid Tests are currently being converted to the EU level. What are the CO2 values reach the new engines, not published Daimler.
For Diesel will be introduced, also road tests for the exhaust gas measurement (Real Driving Emissions). The new Diesel six-cylinder to meet, as we are already sold four-cylinder variant – according to the manufacturer, the 2017 emission requirements (Real Driving Emissions) for diesel engines. The critical German environmental aid and the technical inspection Agency, Dekra was confirmed by Daimler that, at least for the already on the market Diesel. Daimler had also announced such as Volkswagen already by 2017, step all the gasoline way, to be equipped with particle filters.
