A New Advanced Performance with E 350 EQ-Boost from Mercedes-Benz Indonesia
Mercedes-Benz Indonesia launches the new E 350 EQ Boost with a new engine and even more equipment for the E-Class.
With its premier creation in the E-Class, the marque developed four-cylinder petrol engine that boasts the performance of a high-capacity six-cylinder engine. The car has also been brilliantly designed to reduce fuel consumption.
The engine of E 350 EQ Boost generates 220kW/299 hp from a displacement of 199 1 cc and achieves a fuel consumption (combined) of 6.9-6.7 I/ 100 km (combined CO2 emissions: 156 – 153 g/km). Pioneering technologies such as the EQ-Boost Starter-Generator, 48-volt onboard electrical system and a particulate filter for petrol engines contribute to increased efficiency. New highlights of equipment are standard for the E 350 EQ Boost: these include Nappa leather upholstery, Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist.
With its new high-tech combustion engine in the E 350 EQ Boost, Mercedes-Benz is systemically continuing its CASE strategy which through the areas of networking (Connected), autonomous driving (Autonomous), flexible use (Shared & Services) and electric powertrains (Electric) is designed to turn the car into a platform for future mobility concepts and a space that offers a digital experience. A key step in this is the introduction of a new four-cylinder petrol engine featuring a specific output in excess of 100 kW per litre and an intelligent combination of state-of-the-art engine technology and partial electrification through 48 V technology. With an output of 220 kW/299 hp and maximum torque of 400 Nm, it is pushing forward into performance areas which were previously the reserve of our high-capacity, six-cylinder engines. At the same time, it consumes significantly less fuel than corresponding six-cylinder engines. The innovative 9-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission supports both a dynamic and a fuel-saving driving style.
The engine’s special features include twin-scroll turbochargers, belt-driven 48 V starter-alternator (EQ Boost) and electric 48 V water pump. In conjunction with the modern onboard 48 V technology, the starter-alternator enables outstanding efficiency by making hybrid functions available. In practical terms, these are seen in such features as
- Easy start, in which the engine starts and accelerates almost imperceptibly,
- Boost – this function can support the combustion engine in the engine speed range up to 2500 rpm with an additional output of up to 10 kW and 150 Nm of torque from the electric motor,
- Recuperation of up to 12 kW when braking,
- Operation within favourable engine characteristics,
- Gliding with automatic engine switch-off when the driving conditions permit this.
