Hybrid technology at Mercedes-Benz


More power, less consumption.

Our EQ Power models with plug-in hybrid drive link the best of both worlds: the dynamism and efficiency of an electric motor with the range of a combustion engine. You can move about fully electrically in city traffic, recharge the vehicle at home as well as at public charging stations and benefit from the usual convenience of short refuelling stops on long journeys.

Mercedes-Benz EQ Power: plug-in hybrid drive.

Charging socket

The high-voltage lithium-ion battery can be charged externally via a charging socket on the right-hand side of the rear bumper.

Thanks to an intelligent on-board charging system, you can charge the battery at a wallbox, at a conventional domestic socket or at one of the public charging points that are becoming an increasingly common sight.

HV lithium-ion battery

Depending on the model, a fully charged battery covers a fully
electric range of over 30 km with zero local emissions.

Hybrid transmission including electric motor

The electric motor and an additional decoupler between the combustion engine and electric motor are completely integrated into the hybrid head of the standard-specification 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission.

Internal combustion engine

Depending on the model, four- or six-cylinder petrol engines are combined with hybrid modules and batteries with different performance ratings.

If required, the output of the combustion engine is supported by the electric motor – for an extra boost when accelerating. The result is performance that combines driving pleasure and comfort with minimal consumption and low emissions.

Recuperative brake system

Recuperation allows energy to be recovered when decelerating and braking.

The greatest potential for consumption reduction in hybrid drive systems lies in the maximisation of energy recovery when decelerating and braking. When you press down on the brake pedal, the electric motor initially takes on the task of decelerating the vehicle, acting as an alternator.
