We’re starting to see elements added to cars that help tell the driver when and how to save gas, rather than having the driver rely on gathering their own tips and implementing them. Nissan’s Eco Pedal is one such gadget. And now Mercedes-Benz has their own.
Their new C-Class will have a C 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Prime Edition that will help drivers save fuel by telling them when to switch gears. A display will inform the driver of the best time to shift to maximize mileage. We’ll be able to see this in action this fall, when about 5,000 of these models exit the factory. The model is part of the BlueEFFICIENCY series that will have various green-ish measures such as reduced weight, better aerodynamics, and improved fuel consumption. All rather ho-hum measures, but it’s something.
