The New Year is a time to say goodbye to the past and look forward to the future. Mercedes-Benz is doing so by constantly striving to introduce ground-breaking designs that will bring viable sustainability to the forefront of the luxury vehicle industry.
Here at MB Star Motors, we are familiar with every Mercedes model and passionate about the future of the prestige brand. Our trained specialist technicians work hard to remain informed on the latest innovations.
Part of the challenge of increased sustainability is delivering environmentally friendly designs without losing the exquisite control and performance parameters Mercedes-Benz is renown for.
The team at MB Star Motors are following these developments closely. We will always be focused on delivering the best possible care and maintenance for the evolution of the Mercedes-Benz range.
Eye on The Future
Mercedes-Benz has been built on an ability to envision potential in the automobile industry. An example from the archives: Did you know in 1981 Mercedes-Benz were the first to produce a front passenger airbag in a series-production car?
Sustainability in Business
Mercedes-Benz is constantly improving their sustainability practices. In 2019 Mercedes-Benz AG and Amazon founded the Climate Pledge, with the aim of contributing to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement ten years earlier than scheduled.
A Carbon Neutral Goal
In 2019, Mercedes-Benz announced they aim to have a carbon-neutral new passenger car fleet by 2039. The next two decades looks set to be an exciting time for Mercedes-Benz technological developments that minimise environmental impact.
Carbon Neutral Production
From next year, Mercedes-Benz plants in Germany are scheduled to operate carbon neutral plants. This means in 2022, the electrical energy needed to run the plants will be obtained from renewable sources.
Carbon Neutral Supply Chain
As posted in December by PR Newswire almost half of Mercedes-Benz suppliers have signed an “Ambition Letter of Intent” with a commitment to supply only carbon neutral parts in the future.
Mercedes-Benz has its eye on dominating the electric car market over the next few years, with multiple releases added to the electric vehicle range in 2021. The goal is to have at least half of sales electric by 2030, according to SP Global.
Battery Recycling Research
This interview with Manuel Michel gives an insight into the extensive research currently taking place in regards to the future of batteries used in Mercedes-Benz vehicles including potential recycling processes.
CO2 Offset Projects
Where carbon emissions can’t be avoided, Mercedes-Benz compensates with offset projects that meet the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and the additional gold standard.
The Future is Bright
In half a decade, Mercedes-Benz AG will celebrate a century of ambitious design and engineering that has culminated in some of the greatest high-performance luxury vehicles ever created.
