Mercedes F700 powered by DIESOTTO engine
Under the motto “Fascination and Responsibility” Mercedes-Benz will be showcasing a unique range of new, extremely economical and clean models based on intelligently combined drive technologies at the 2007 International Motor Show in Frankfurt. “Our customers can rest assured that their Mercedes will also in future meet the most stringent requirements in terms of safety, comfort and effortless superiority, and that they will do so with exemplary green credentials”, explains Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of DaimlerChrysler AG. With 19 new models ‑ including seven hybrids and just as many CO2 world champions ‑ as well as the groundbreaking F 700 research car, Mercedes-Benz will be setting out its roadmap for the future in Frankfurt.
"The F 700 with its innovative DIESOTTO and hybrid drive consumes just 5.3 litres of petrol per 100 kilometres - equivalent to CO2 emissions of just 127 grams per kilometre. This value equals the fuel consumption of a modern day diesel-powered compact car, and boasts the lowest petrol consumption figures of a large luxury saloon in the history of the motor car", explains Dr. Thomas Weber, Member of the DaimlerChrysler AG Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Mercedes Car Group Development. And in other important vehicle classes, too, Mercedes-Benz is setting the global benchmark for consumption and emissions at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt.
The modular technology concept from Mercedes-Benz includes optimised combustion engines and customised hybrid solutions, which are deployed individually or in combination depending on the vehicle class, application profile and customer requirements.
