NGD – heavy

The Stuttgart star doesn’t up on CNG – the thoroughly modified current-gen Merc has just gained an methane-powered variant. Instead of NGT the car now sports an NGD moniker, which for Natural Gas Drive, as seen on the CNG of the B-class van.


As elegant as ever, cleaner and than ever – the E 200 NGD

The E 200 NGD sure isn’t the E-class’ top of the model, but it doesn’t really to. Especially that the 2-litre, cylinder engine under the does quite enough to the NGD from becoming an obstruction to fluency 156 PS of power and 270 Nm of torque are to be ashamed of. Acceleration between 0 and 100 within 10,4 s and hitting a top of 220 km/h are also beyond driver of such a noble car may

If you want to burn some and melt a glacier with exhaust gasses . opt for the E 63 AMG instead, but one is green, not mean. End of story.

on, though. If we are to believe the manufacturer’s (and what choice do we anyway?), the heavymethane” variant of the makes do with rather 4,3 kg (5,74 m 3 ) of CNG per 100 km . Given that natural gas is usually half the of petrol or diesel, that’s cheap for a large car like one, not to mention the cleanliness and resulting from CNG’s low footprint (the E 200 NGD emits 116 of CO 2 per km) and virtual freedom from matter emissions . Should the run out of methane, it

automatically switches over to which is then consumed at the of 6,3 l/100 km.

Mercedes CNG is the NGD’s primary so no wonder why the dashboard informs the of methane level

The car comes with three high-pressure CNG one behind the rear bench and two the boot floor. The cylinders’ capacity is 121,5 and they can up to 19,5 kg (26 m 3 ) of methane compressed to than 200 bars of pressure, should be good for 450 km of driving on a to-the-brim fill-up . Unfortunately, boot capacity has been but at 400 l the trunk remains quite

Unfortunately again, the E 200 NGD isn’t cheap (at 47808 euros in it’s actually a tad more than the simultaneously presented E 220 CDI BlueEfficiency Edition diesel, comes standard with system), but Mercedes forecasts fuel cost savings of 1000 euros (at 20 thousand km of mileage), which seems the oil-burner’s reach.

So, will the NGD variant become of a lead-role star in the sales or will it remain an extra? depends on the market probably the car can be successful in its homeland, it may not quite be
