Geneva Preview: Mercedes GLK Hybrid BLUETEC

In a week#8217;s we#8217;re going to get a second of Mercedes-Benz#8217; VISION GLK Concept first premiered at the Detroit in January. The Geneva Show features a hybrid powertrain combines a 2.2-liter, 4-cylinder diesel engine with an motor generating a total of 224 Hp and 560 Nm or 413 lb/ft of maximum torque.

In of performance, the VISION GLK BLUETEC accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 in 7.3 sec and achieves a top of 215 km/h or 134 mph. these performance figures, consumes an average of only 5.9 lt of per 100 km or 40 MPG. Moreover, according to the VISION GLK BLUETEC HYBRID the world#8217;s lowest CO2 emissions in the SUV with 157 grams per km. #8211;More and pics after the jump


The grand rehearsal at the of this year already heads turn, when the Vision GLK entered the SUV stage and was as a compact character actor a new design approach in this class. At the 2008 Geneva Show, Mercedes-Benz is going a further and adding the Vision GLK HYBRID to the line-up.

This illustrates the possibilities of the TrueBlueSolutions in the compact SUV segment, true to the Mercedes-Benz theme of producing the most efficient and clean systems. The Vision GLK BLUETEC achieved this goal by the new BLUETEC four-cylinder diesel generation with a hybrid This combination generates an output of 165 kW/224 hp, and a torque of 560 Nm.

Superior performance can be taken as in view of these figures. And yet the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID returns a consumption of only 5.9 l per 100 km.

With its strategy, Mercedes-Benz is preparing the way for the of the world#8217;s most economical and vehicles. As in the case of the VISION GLK HYBRID, ultra-modern and efficient engines with innovative emissions control, hybrid and intelligent energy management are the centrepieces of this trailblazing of drive systems.

The study for compact characterful SUV has a combined of 165 kW/224 hp and generates a combined of 560 newton metres, the world#8217;s in this class. This the VISION GLK BLUETEC HYBRID to from zero to 100 km/h in 7.3 its maximum speed is 215 km/h. these performance figures, multi-talented newcomer consumes an of only 5.9 litres of diesel per 100 and achieves the world#8217;s lowest CO2 in the SUV segment, with 157 grams per

In conjunction with highly BLUETEC emissions control and injection, the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID the world#8217;s most stringent emission limits, such as the BIN5 and the European EU6 standards.

With the refinement, driving outstanding economy and effective friendliness that is typical of our the VISION GLK BLUETEC HYBRID represents our ideas on future generations in the world of SUVs, Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the of Management responsible for Corporate and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development.

double: state-of-the-art BLUETEC and hybrid module

In the hybrid a completely new four-cylinder CDI diesel with a displacement of 2.2 litres as the internal combustion engine. In of exhaust emissions technology, to the latest BLUETEC technology AdBlue injection, this engine is already among the very cleanest power

The technical highlights of this compact and refined CDI unit a geared camshaft drive on the flywheel side include common-rail direct injection an injection pressure of 2000 innovative piezoelectric injectors and a turbocharger system. The compact module – a disc-shaped motor between the CDI engine and the transmission – improves the environmental compatibility and the effectiveness of the system. The electric motor as both a generator and starter, and convincingly in two important respects: it contributes decisively to fuel and secondly it significantly enhances pleasure by virtue of the so-called effect.

The electric motor up the internal combustion engine the fuel-intensive acceleration phase by its maximum torque of 160 newton As a result the occupants experience an rush of power right the start. In addition the system a comfortable start-stop function switches the engine off in certain – for example when the car is at traffic lights.

The driver only needs to the accelerator in order to set off again. As the starts within milliseconds, the GLK moves off with no delay. direct starting also to minimise emissions and fuel

When it comes to braking, the are reversed: the electric motor as

a generator, feeding the electrical obtained by what is known as the process into an efficient yet lithium-ion battery. This can be retrieved when needed for the next boost phase, for All these processes take fully automatically, thanks to drive management.

Striking design counters stylistic

With the VISION GLK BLUETEC a distinctive character is entering the SUV whose special appeal in a combination of the four-square original of the legendary G-Class and the typical features of today#8217;s Mercedes-Benz cars. Crisp lines and taut body surfaces together with the bodyshell of practical off-roaders, such as overhangs, an upright front slim A-pillars, a steep and tight roof contours.

For the time, this body enables typical off-roader to be transferred to the more road-oriented, SUV class. An excellent view of the body and good all-round go together with the raised position to enhance day-to-day and ensure relaxed driving in dense city traffic.

The appealing design concept is by the special alubeam blue finish, whose incomparable further underlines the sporty of the bodyshell design. Specially 20-inch light-alloy wheels and wheel arches enhance the aura of the Vision GLK BLUETEC even further.

Interior: atmosphere meets good

Mercedes GLK

The comfortable, high-quality interior of the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID excels a modern interpretation of surface an impressive quality of materials and finishing. The dominant feature is the which visually extends the door panels, lending width to the generously dimensioned An elegant, central section in aluminium trim covers the width and divides the layout three vertical levels.

The section of the dashboard is lined in leather, encompassing the instrument and the fixed COMAND APS central The lower area of the interior and the accentuate the sporty nature of the with leather upholstery and in a light shade of aquamarine, echoes the colour effects of the blue exterior paintwork. piped seams provide a effective contrast.

The driver#8217;s and the COMAND APS controller are located in ideal positions.

The occupants are protected by a comprehensive concept based on an extremely passenger cell and energy-absorbing zones at the front and rear. In to airbags, sidebags and windowbags, the features include a driver and active head restraints.

GLK appointments at the perceived level of the class

This compact vehicle has technical features and which are normally the preserve of vehicle classes. In addition to the safety concept PRE-SAFE and the Light System (ILS), include the infotainment centre APS with HDD navigation, whose follow the tried-and-tested, intuitive logic familiar from the as well as THERMOTRONIC 3-zone climate control.

The extremely bodyshell raises the basic by which comfort is defined to a which is unprecedented in the compact SUV Both handling stability and comfort are absolutely convincing in all

AGILITY CONTROL: Safety dynamic handling and comfort

The CONTROL suspension of the on-road GLK BLUETEC HYBRID substantially the conflicting aims of sporty and handling on the one hand and comfortable, travel on the other. Thanks to damping, the suspension delivers a response during normal on moderately contoured roads or surfaces.

Comfort is maintained when driving more or during avoiding manoeuvres, as the work harder in this to ensure maximum handling At the same time the driver of the GLK BLUETEC HYBRID is assisted by a steering system. Parking and manoeuvring are made much because full servo is made available.

At higher speeds this assistance is reduced in the interests of handling stability.

Latest to the premium SUV segment

Mercedes-Benz has the leading position in the off-road since the introduction of the legendary in 1979.

With the first-generation which was launched in 1997, defined the Sports Utility in its modern interpretation. Together the current model, which its premiere in 2005, sales of model series are rapidly the one million mark, making it one of the most successful premium Since 2006 another SUV Mercedes-Benz has occupied the pole in the SUV world – the GL-Class, occupants enjoy first-class in all circumstances, whether on or off-road.

The GLK BLUETEC HYBRID now demonstrates how performance could be paired minimal fuel consumption in the What is more, this need not be confined to the new GLK-Class, will enter the market in 2008.
