TUV Sud is an independent international service corporation that offers inspection services to companies.

Professor Herbert Kohler, Daimler AG’s Chief Environmental Officer, said, “After introducing the S 400 HYBRID in 2009, Mercedes-Benz is now setting new standards for luxury-class business vehicles with the E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid. The modular hybrid technology is opening the way for us to quickly expand other model series with the addition of hybrid models.”

The Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid is equipped with a 201 horsepower 2.2-liter CDI engine. This is paired with the electric motor that is capable of 25 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid is, unfortunately, not available in the United States yet. It is one of the first diesel hybrids to hit the European market and is the first diesel hybrid passenger car released by Mercedes-Benz.
