Mercedes’ win this year is a repeat performance for its clean diesel technology following the 2007 World Green Car Award given to the Mercedes BlueTEC E320. The World Green Car competition factored in tailpipe emissions, fuel consumption, and use of a major advanced power plant technology (beyond engine components), aimed specifically at increasing the vehicle's environmental responsibility.
