German premium carmaker Mercedes-Benz has created a new plug-in hybrid vehicle that combines the power of two technologies –electricity (battery) and fuel cell (hydrogen). In short distances, it relies on pure electricity. When there is a need to travel over long distance, this plug-in hybrid relies on the power of fuel cell. This is the new Mercedes-Benz GLC F-CELL PHEV.
Using the Mercedes GLC as the base, this technological showcase isn't a futuristic vehicle, but is a real SUV that will be delivered to customers at the end of October 2018. It was originally envisioned as a plug-in hybrid, but now represents an important step by the German carmaker in the development of fuel cell technology.
As engineered, the Mercedes GLC F-CELL PHEV features four operating modes: Battery, Charge, F-Cell and Hybrid. All operating modes are supported by an energy recovery function that allows energy to be recovered during braking or coasting, then store it in the lithium-ion battery.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz GLC F-CELL PHEV makes use of battery and fuel cell for operations
In terms of performance, the Mercedes-AMG GT – whether in its base or R version -- already packs a good punch. Nonetheless, several tuning companies have already created their own version of the AMG GT, and they all managed to create a greater monster out of the "Beast of the Green Hell." Now, it is the turn of Fostla, a tuning firm from Germany, to show off its own formula of steroids for the AMG GT.
First off, Fostla saw it fit to make the AMG GT look meaner on the road. This entails the fitment of a number of aftermarket parts and components. While these aftermarket parts and components should make the AMG GT become visually more appealing and more dynamic, they should give these beast an aerodynamic advantage.
To achieve this, Fostla saw it suitable to install a widebody kit, which aftermarket package was provided by Prior Design. This widebody kit gave the AMG GT wider hips as well as a rear wing. Prior Design’s aftermarket package likewise includes a number of aerodynamic elements like front and rear flicks as well as a meaner rear diffuser. Up front, the stock front grille of the AMG GT was replaced with a blacked-out configuration evoking the Panamericana grille.Read the entire article This Mercedes-AMG GT tuned by Fostla is a green monster on the road
Mercedes-Benz Trucks is introducing the latest generation of its flagship heavy-duty truck – the all-new Mercedes-Benz Actros. The all-new flagship truck is now more efficient, more comfortable, more integrated and more high-tech. For the newest generation, the all-new Actros gets rid of the conventional side mirrors and makes use of side mirror cameras called MirrorCam.
The online introduction of the new Mercedes Actros serves as a precursor to the official unveiling of the all-new flagship truck at the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show, which is scheduled to happen from September 20 to 27, 2018 in Hanover, Germany. It will be available to order as soon as the 2018 IAA show starts, with first batch of deliveries set in spring 2019. The new Actros can be configured according to the requirement and needs of its customers.
Compared to its predecessor, the all-new Mercedes Actros consumes up to five percent less fuel on rural routes as well as up to three percent less fuel on long-distance haulage. Annual mileage in long-distance haulage usually exceeds 120,000 km, and a three-percent less fuel consumption on motorways and expressways means that a lot of fuel and money is saved. This feat is achieved through improved aerodynamics, advanced Predictive Powertrain Control and a new rear axle ratio.Read the entire article New generation of Mercedes-Benz Actros introduced with MirrorCam technology
Crime prevention is usually a job for the police authorities. Nonetheless, being in the wrong time and wrong place can make one a victim of a crime. Mercedes-Benz is currently working on an app that would allow drivers and their passengers to not become crime victims.
Places usually not frequented by many people are the usual venues for crimes. Criminals lurk in these places simply because the chances of being seen or caught are quite low. One of these places is the parking area, where vehicles typically outnumber people, except when it is time to go home. Going into a safe parking area already means a lot for any driver. At Mercedes-Benz, its software developers are finding ways to help Mercedes-Benz drivers avoid parking areas that are prone to crime.
Still under development and planned for future use on Mercedes-Benz models in the United State, this new app allows cars to use crime data to recommend safe parking spaces or areas. An in-car service, the new app would cross-reference police statistics with available parking spaces, to tell Mercedes-Benz drivers whether it is safe or not to park in a certain parking space.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz is working on a new app that warns on safety of parking areas

The Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC makes use of the design idiom of the new A-Class with the addition of distinctive AMG elements.
For instance, the front end of the new AMG A 35 4MATIC is marked by a radiator grille with twin louvers, a front splitter and a AMG Line front apron with flics on the air intakes. Silver chrome trims are also found on the louvers in the outer air intakes.

Whenever Mercedes-Benz officially unveils a new generation vehicle, it also creates a special edition model dedicated to the launch of the all-new model. Typically called as the Edition 1, this model is essentially a more lavish version of the newly launched next-gen model. Now, after unveiling the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan, the carmaker is introducing the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Edition 1.
As a launch edition model, The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Edition 1 is differentiated from its ordinary counterpart with a number of visual tweaks.

It has been a year since Mercedes-Benz unveiled the Mercedes-AMG Project One at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. So far, there has been no or little update from the German premium carmaker. Nonetheless, Mercedes is expected to unveil the production-ready version as well as the final moniker of the Project One next month at the upcoming 2018 Paris Motor Show.
During the year after the Project One was revealed, there has been rumors that Mercedes is also intending to create two more versions of the hypercar. One of these would be an open-top roadster version and the other would a track-only variant that can’t be legally driven on the road. According to TheSupercarBlog.com, Mercedes was planning to build between five to 10 units of the Project One roadster, as well as between 25 to 50 examples of the track-only version.
Of course, Mercedes really had to look into whether developing two more versions of the AMG Project would bring a good case. These two versions – the Project One roadster and track-only model – were evaluated, but evaluations weren’t so positive for them. TheSupercarBlog.com reported that roadster and track-only versions of the Project One were sent to the trash bin in August.Read the entire article Rumored roadster version of Mercedes-AMG Project One is not coming
For the past years, Mercedes-Benz has been unveiling spectacular concepts or visions. There were the AMG Vision GT and the Concept IAA, as well as the Vision Maybach 6 and the Vision Maybach 6 Cabriolet. Its latest concept, unveiled at the Monterey Car Week, is likewise nothing short of stunning while showing off the carmaker’s glorious past. This concept is the new Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow.
Just by looking at this concept, people can’t help but associate with Mercedes’ Grand Prix racing cars in the 1930s. During this period, Mercedes cars were called Silver Arrows. Actually, the new Vision EQ Silver Arrow is inspired by and pays tribute to the 1937 Mercedes W125 Grand Prix racing car. Driven by the legendary Rudolf Caracciola, the W125 set a new speed record on public roads in 1937 after averaging 432.7 km/h (268.8 mph) on the A5 autobahn between Frankfurt and Darmstadt. This record sat untouched for around 80 years, until it was broken in November 2017.
Just like the 1937 W125, the Vision EQ Silver Arrow features a long and extended front section and short front overhang. The round cockpit glazing of the Vision EQ Silver Arrow -- modeled on a drop of water in terms of outline and cross-section – was also inspired by the W125. Similar to the Silver Arrows, this one-seater concept is wrapped in alubeam silver paint.Read the entire article Futuristic Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow pays tribute to record-setting W125
When the Mercedes-Benz X-Class was unveiled in 2017, it was no doubt a representation of luxury among pickup trucks. While Maybach represents the ultra-luxurious side of Mercedes-Benz, the X-Class isn't one. However, a Polish company that goes by the name of Carlex Design is offering to convert the new X-Class into a Maybach-like pickup in terms of looks and features.
Carlex Design noted that the Mercedes-Benz X-Class deserves to be called as a luxury pickup. Not only that the pickup offers a drive comparable to a sports utility vehicle, it also delivers a smooth comfortable ride. In addition, the new X-Class, in its standard guise, isn't just coz and comfortable, but is also equipped with features found in premium cars. Thus, Carlex Design made the X-Class a subject of a new conversion program that could be availed for as low as EUR105,000. To prove its point, the Polish specialist created an example.
At a glance, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class by Carlex Design is undeniably an X-Class but with a twist. The typical grille of the X-Class has been replaced by that of a Maybach. In particular, this conversion employs a grille from the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz X-Class by Carlex Design offers Maybach looks and interior
Mercedes-AMG only came out with the E43 lineup a few years ago, and already, the said model is ready to retire the badge so they could give way for the arrival of the electrified E53 family. It was first revealed at the beginning of the year during the Detroit Auto Show and came in two body styles, a coupe and a cabriolet. These were then followed by the reveal of the sedan and wagon flavours last month.
And according to the automaker, towards the end of the year, Mercedes will be selling the 2019 model year E53 Sedan in the United States, as a replacement of the E43 Sedan, and it will come along with the more upscale two-door E53 models. To make it clear, the name change is just a minor thing.
The real upgrade is in its performance, as it now packs more power. But instead, the new inline six biturbo 3.0 liter engine has an output of 429 horsepower and 384 pound feet of torque. That’s a noticeable difference compared to the old model that offered the output of 396 horsepower and 384 pound feet that came from the former V6 engine.Read the entire article 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 Sedan will be available in the US later this year
Right now, if you check the Mercedes-Benz G Class configurator online, you will be given two options, namely the G500 and the G63. The G500 first came out in January with the launch of the W464 at NAIAS in Detroit, and the G63 made its first appearance in Geneva a few weeks after the first one. For those of you who are looking for a more low end torque, then you will need to wait until the end of the year to place an order for a diesel powered G in Europe.
If you speak to the guys behind the Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog, they will tell you that the diesel G-Class that takes the shape of the G350d 4Matic model will be available in Germany by December. At the same time, production will begin during this time but deliveries will not begin until March 2019 at the earliest. The report then says that dealers will get the first diesel models for potential clients to try out sometime in spring of next year.
You might be wondering what the original identity of the diesel engine is. Well, it is actually the OM 656 that we saw last year together with the S-Class facelift. This was eventually launched in other models like the CLS. In the S350d sedan, it pumps out 286 horsepower (210 kilowatts) and 600 Newton metres (443 pound feet) of torque. Moving on to the S400d, it has a little more output, at 340 horsepower (250 kilowatts) and 700 Newton metres (516 pound feet) of torque.Read the entire article Diesel-powered Mercedes-Benz G-Class will soon be available in Europe
Mercedes-Benz has been working on refreshing its people-hauling V-Class, which has racked up more than 100,000 deliveries since 2014. But before the new model finally goes on sale sometime next year, the German automaker is giving the current model one last special edition to keep customers interested.
It is called the V-Class Night Edition and it comes with a handful of improvements care of the AMG department. But don’t get too excited because they aren’t doing any improvements to the engine. Power comes from the automaker’s familiar 2.1 liter turbodiesel engine with 190 horsepower (140 kilowatts) and 325 pound-feet (440 Newton metres) of torque. According to Mercedes, the average fuel consumption is between 6.8 and 7.5 liters per 100 kilometers, or 34.6-31.4 miles per gallon with CO2 emissions of 179-199 grams per kilometer.
As for the exterior upgrades, there’s the new AMG front and rear aprons, new radiator grille with two louvres in high gloss black, black AMG sourced 19 inch alloy wheels with seven twin spoke design, Edition badges on the front wings, and tinted rear windows.Read the entire article 2018 Mercedes-Benz V-Class Night Edition model gets AMG upgrades
Mercedes-Benz decides to surprise us with yet another model in the AMG GT lineup by introducing the new GT S Roadster that is positioned between the regular GT Roadster and the GT C version. The newest model will arrive in the United States later this year.
Similar to the other AMG GT models, the new S Roadster comes equipped with a 4.0 liter biturbo V8 that makes 515 horsepower (384 kilowatts) and 494 pound feet of torque (670 Newton metres). In comparison, the standard GT Roadster has 469 horsepower (350 kilowatts) while the droptop GT C packs 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts). All of these have a seven speed dual clutch gearbox.
The S’ capabilities are very much aligned with that of the C’s, thanks to its powertrain. For instance, the S Roadster requires 3.7 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour), only 0.1 second slower than its C counterpart, with a rating of 3.6 seconds. The new model can max out at 192 miles per hour (309 kilometers per hour) versus the 196 miles per hour (315 kilometers per hour) of the GT C.Read the entire article 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster unveiled to join the already formidable GT lineup
For those of you who are not aware, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class is exactly the same model as the Nissan Navara, except it is dressed in fancier clothes while featuring some additional technology too. Also, the X-Class has been offering a more powerful six cylinder diesel engine since March.
Since there isn’t much of a difference between the two, there are some customers who are not willing to spend quite a bit more on the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. Instead, they opt for the more mainstream version. Nonetheless, the world’s largest aftermarket tuner, Brabus, has created a tuning package for this truck that might convince them to reconsider.
Brabus has developed a full-on exterior and interior kit for the X Class, giving it a sportier look while improving on its practicality. Among the add-ons are new LED markers built into the front bumper and another lighting module with twelve diodes on the roof, which is activated with the high beam. The revised fascia then gets a new grille design, and in the back is a set of chrome tailpipes.Read the entire article Brabus tunes the Mercedes-Benz X-Class truck to be sportier, more practical!
Today, we know that celebrity-owned cars aren’t really the most affordable second hand models we could get. But at the same, there are a lot of fans out there who are willing to do anything to get up close with their idols, and for some of them, that means spending more. Wouldn’t you want to buy a car once raced or driven by Michael Fassbender? Well, if you could afford it, why not?
In fact, many celebrity-owned cars have been put up for sale before, including Daniel Craig’s one-off Aston Martin Vanquish. There’s also Elvis Presley’s 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SEL. That’s not all. Even Russia’s leader Putin’s 1995 Mercedes Benz S Class S600 Pullman Guard was once up for sale with a $1,351,740 price tag. We assume this had been purchased already since the ad for it is gone.
But at the time of this writing, there is one high-profile car that really caught our attention. This car had been owned by reigning Formula 1 champion, Lewis Hamilton. It is a 2015 Mercedes-Maybach S600 luxury sedan and its ad is currently up on British used cars listings site, autotrader.co.uk.Read the entire article Lewis Hamilton is selling his Mercedes-Maybach S600
Even when companies say that they don’t care about setting records, they sometimes don’t mean it. For instance, Mercedes-Benz executives just said that they’re not really after record-breaking Nurburgring lap times.
But in contrary to this, they have talked about plans of pushing the Project One hypercar to its limits by taking it to the Green Hell. By doing so, aren’t they trying to prove themselves wrong, by hoping that this could be their fastest car ever? That’s not all, because the automaker also brought in the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe alongside it, which recently finished a near-record time lap.
Mercedes CEO, Tobias Moers, said in his interview with Automobile that the AMG GT Four-Door finished lapping the Ring in “7 minutes 30 something” seconds. Not only does this make it really quick, but that “something” could likely break a record. Even if it doesn’t, it will still be placed at one of the top spots of the leaderboard for four door vehicles, just behind Jag’s newest special edition.Read the entire article Did the Mercedes AMG GT 4-door coupe just break records at the Nurburging?
Mercedes-Benz has published images of the new A-Class hatchback and sedan models, together with spy shots of the B-Class, CLA, GLA and the GLB. But one thing we have not seen yet is the CLA Shooting Brake. While we’ve heard rumours that the swoopy wagon won’t be renewed, we think that the opposite is true.
In January 2017, Autocar heard from Mercedes’ sales and marketing boss, Britta Seeger, that the wagon will be getting a second generation version. There has been no retraction so we take that as a signal that we will soon see a new generation of the CLA SB. Nevertheless, we regret to say that the larger model, the CLS Shooting Brake, has been terminated due to low demand.
It is true that a lot of people have a thing for wagons, but the number of people who are shifting to crossovers and SUVs are significantly more, and really, automakers will just have to head towards the direction where their business will flourish. This is also why we should be glad that Mercedes-Benz is still giving the CLA Shooting Brake a second generation model.Read the entire article X-Tomi’s rendering of Mercedes-Benz A-Class Wagon is a stylish Shooting Brake
The Maybach sub-brand has already come to characterize utmost exclusivity among luxury vehicles. Thus, if Maybach unveils an all-new concept with “ultimate luxury” as part of its moniker, it would only be dutiful to take a peek at this new study. As not to disappoint, a new concept vehicle dubbed as “Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury” has just been unveiled by the sub-brand at the Auto China 2018 in Beijing.
As its name indicates, the new Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury represents how the sub-brand views the future of ultimate luxury, as packed in a shape of a premium crossover. Measuring 5,260 mm in length, 2,110 mm in width and 1,764 mm in height, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is practically a luxurious electric car powered by four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors for a fully variable all-wheel drive configuration.
Total output is pegged at 750 hp (550 kW), with energy derived from a flat underfloor battery with a capacity of around 80 kWh. This battery allows the concept to travel more than 500 km as per NEDC, or over 200 miles as per EPA. The study has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.Read the entire article Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is opulence visualized in a crossover
