our almost 125-year history, we accumulated extensive experience and in the area of electric vehicles, both battery and fuel-cell. knowhow has already provided the for getting two electric cars for use onto the road: the smart electric drive, and the B‑Class The story now continues with our electric car, the A‑Class whose start of production is for autumn this year.

The new car is a electric Mercedes that our portfolio and offers our customers the of driving pleasure, comfort and that they have to expect”, says Dr Thomas the Daimler AG Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars.

Driving with zero emissions

with exemplary safety, comfort and a high level of for daily use, the A‑Class also offers other not always to be found in contemporary cars: agility and driving The features are based on a low centre of partly the result of the installation of the under the passenger compartment, in the structure of the vehicle floor.

This gives the car excellent and sprightly handling characteristics that clearly set the A‑Class apart from other cars, which often heavy and bulky storage located in the boot or by the rear Another benefit from installation location is the provision of protection against the intrusion of components in the event of a head-on or impact from the rear.

is because the batteries are located the vehicle body’s deformation The high-stability characteristics of the sandwich of the floor also provide protection for both battery and in a lateral collision scenario.

electric drive with range

The electric drive of the E‑CELL is a permanent-field synchronous developing a peak output of 70 kW (95 a continuous power rating of 50 kW (68 hp) and a maximum torque of 290 Nm, as expected for an drive, available right the first revolution. This the A‑Class E‑CELL an outstandingly and dynamic performer on the road, just 5.5 seconds to accelerate zero to 60 km/h.

A kick-down is used to deliver maximum according to the current charge and battery temperature. Maximum is electronically set at 150 km/h.

The energy units are two high-performance lithium-ion based on high-voltage technology. The of lithium-ion batteries include compact dimensions and significantly efficiency in comparison with (NiMH) batteries. They 30 percent more energy than NiMH technology, and 50 more power density. benefits include high efficiency and a long service

The combined energy capacity of the two batteries is a total of 36 kWh. fully charged batteries, the E‑CELL has a range of over 200 (NEDC).

Efficient battery cooling

A special thermomanagement system the high-voltage batteries cooled to an optimum temperature window. The system is based on a low-temperature circuit. Fluid cooling a water-glycol mixture ensures a operating temperature supporting the degree of efficiency and the longevity of the storage.

In very high temperature conditions, the battery system is boosted with the circuit of the air-conditioning system. The drive system and two on-board are cooled with a high-temperature circuit. This circuit the units working at optimum temperatures, with maximum delivery from the drive

The car’s power electronics the 12-volt vehicle electrical via a DC/DC converter with current from the high-voltage The electronics system also other functions such as the and air-conditioning systems in order to the load placed on the battery for purpose.

Flexible charging

The batteries of the A‑Class E‑CELL can be replenished at public charging or plugged into an ordinary power socket. A range of options are available, including 230-volt sockets, three-phase in a household wall-box, and public points. Using a single-phase network, it takes around hours’ charging time to the energy required for a range of 100 km

This time is reduced to three hours in the case of from a wall-box or at a roadside point.

Daimler and a number of European automakers and energy have agreed on standardised plugs and sockets, with an aim of worldwide standardisation. This the technology more customer-friendly, and is as a key prerequisite for the rapid spread of mobility.

Intelligent charging management

the smart fortwo electric in its category, the A‑Class E‑CELL is the first vehicle in its class to be with an intelligent charging system based on “SmartCharge Via the vehicle electronics system, all information such as the electricity contract identification data is with the charging point. include a convenient, simple and reliable billing system.

intelligent features of the car include climate control. While the E‑CELL batteries are being at home or at a roadside charging the interior can be pre-heated or cooled to a set by the driver. Another function the driver to monitor charging and therefore the present range via the internet or a smartphone, for example.

The E‑CELL electronics also for proactive control of the charging So if the electric car is parked for a long recharging can be set to take place at when electricity is cheaper, for during the night. The intelligent in the A‑Class E‑CELL provides a of billing, control and monitoring making electric mobility and safe, and therefore very

To make vehicle handling and as easy, safe and transparent as for the driver, the A‑Class E‑CELL has its own and display concept specifically for the requirements of an electric car. The display in the vehicle shows the charge status, trip such as kilometres driven, time, average speed and fuel consumption, along the remaining range and residual energy capacity (SoC = of charge).

Another detail specific to the is a display of the currently available power. Meanwhile, the rev counter to be found on the instrument panel is with an indicator showing the drive power demand or power. Green, white and segments show whether the system is currently operating in economy or boost mode.
