2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coming With KERS Hybrid System

2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coming With KERS Hybrid System

Borrowing from its Formula 1 racing program, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be available with a 48-Volt KERS (kinetic energy regeneration system) mild hybrid system . The KERS operates by capturing kinetic energy that is ordinarily lost to heat while braking and sends it to a spinning flywheel, which in the case of the C-Class is housed in a hub behind the front disc brakes. Once the energy has been recovered, it can be stored in the flywheel for later use, impacting fuel economy. The KERS system is lighter and less costly than a standard mild hybrid system involving a small battery. The feature will be used with a new modular turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engine family that will power other Mercedes vehicles.
