    Plug-In Hybrids Key to Mercedes Large Cars

    Autocar: Mercedes is developing a range of four-cylinder petrol engines and plug-in hybrid technology

    Merc’s new four-cylinder engines are a key part of its strategy to moves towards the EU tailpipe emissions target of 95g/km by 2020, a 45g/km reduction on the current 140g/km figure. They will be introduced into the new MFA range of Mercedes models – including the new A-class and B-class – from 2014, as well as the core of Renault’s range.

    Despite this march to ever-lower carbon output, [Merc’s head of powertrain strategy Jurgen] Doring says Mercedes will continue to offer large luxury cars in the range, its heartland of sales. “Even in 2020, the Mercedes customer will still be able to buy a big, powerful car,” he predicted.

    The secret will be plug-in hybrids, which Doring believes could eventually push tailpipe emissions of some large Mercedes models down to as low as 60g/km. “The E300 hybrid’s 109g/km is just the start,” he said. Doring predicts around one in four future Mercedes will have a plug-in hybrid drivetrain.

    A and B class cars are not large..... The big ones can benefit provided they can get more juice out of the batteries and create motors that can put out more power per KW.
    '13 Chrysler 300 AWD, '14 Expy EL,'09 Escape Hybrid and shopping for a sports car.
    Good night and good luck.
