More than 38 percent of all new Mercedes cars sold in Europe consume fewer than 6.5 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres. And one in five new Mercedes-Benz cars has a fuel consumption of no more than around five litres per 100 kilometres. Mercedes-Benz currently offers a total of eleven passenger-car models whose average consumption is between just 4.9 and 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres.

In 2006, around 34 percent of all Mercedes customers in Germany opted for a new car with a fuel consumption of below 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres. Around 18 percent of German customers chose a model which consumes no more than five litres per 100 kilometres. Mercedes-Benz is the only premium brand to offer such an extensive range of low-consumption models, including compact cars, sports tourers, saloons and coupés.

The A 160 CDI is the most fuel-efficient Mercedes model of all, with a combined fuel consumption of 4.9 to 5.2 litres per 100 kilometres (depending on tyre size). Boasting an output of 60 kW/82 hp, the compact car has a range of up to 1100 kilometres on a single tank of fuel (54 litres). Mercedes-Benz also offers executive models that can achieve a fuel consumption of around 6 litres per 100 kilometres in the shape of the E 200 CDI and the E 220 CDI. The four-cylinder saloons (with an output of 100 kW/136 hp and 125 kW/170 hp respectively) consume a mere 6.3 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres and, on a full tank (65 litres), can cover in excess of 1000 kilometres. If the optional 80-litre fuel tank is ordered, the range of the CDI saloons is extended to over 1250 kilometres, equivalent to driving from Berlin to Florence.
