RecuperationThe recuperation system recovers energy during coasting and braking phases by means of intelligent alternator voltage regulation, and then temporarily stores this energy in the battery. When the vehicle accelerates again, the energy flows back into the vehicle electric system, taking the strain off the alternator and thus saving fuel.
Driver information system with efficiency program The driver information system display concentrates numerous individual displays centrally in the cockpit, and permanently indicates the vehicle’s current operating state. The efficiency program integrated as standard also provides the driver with an overview of consumption data, display of additional loads, an enlarged gear display and fuel-saving tips for particularly economic driving. The integrated attention assist also analyses driving behaviour using a range of sensors and warns the driver if anything indicates that he is starting to become inattentive.
