Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse

The technical details of the Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse have been released. But for the moment not much body work to reveal. The Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse model will also receive a dedicated eco version of its actual engine in the near future. The B-Klasse will also be fitted with four-wheel drive and a range of alternatively powered engines which will be installed on the future models.

Changes have also been made at the Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse model’s chassis which means that it no longer has sandwich architecture, this allowing the engineers to lower the B-Klasse center of gravity by up to 30 mm. The modification provides a much sportier feel, without losing the comfort that Mercedes owners are used to.

A new “energy storing space” has been engineered into the space between the floor and the under tray of the Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse model, which can be used to store batteries, natural gas tanks and fuel cells. This new feature will be installed on the future hydrogen and hybrid variants, which are scheduled for 2013/2014.

The new Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse  model is equipped with a multi-link rear suspension designed to accommodate the four-wheel drive, 4matic models would be available on more powerful models also on AMG models.

Mercedes-Benz is considering to get benefit from its partnership with Renault in order to develop a range of three cylinder engines, to cover the most efficient range possible for the Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse model. The new powerplant on the Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse model is a direct injection 1.6 litre turbo, and will be available in 2 versions that will produce 123 hp or 154 hp. Special attention has been given to the torque that the engine will have at the lowest revs, so peak shove arrives at a remarkably low 1,250 rpm.

The unveiling of the new B-Klasse will take place at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September, with European sales of the Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse model to start this autumn.

The headlights on the Mercedes-Benz Unimog Cabrio Design monster truck are like stage lights, which focus the beam of light. The lines of the frame have been finished with high-grade trims cut from aluminum blocks, while the four same-size wheels boast a five star alum-rim design.

“The design concept “60 Years Unimog” on the Mercedes-Benz Unimog Cabrio Design monster truck is not however a prototype for a new product range. But it becomes quite clear that the Mercedes-Benz Unimog will still continue to have an innovative character in future and will still possess a high degree of versatility in design and type of construction. It is after all a unique vehicle concept,” a company statement clarifies.
