The development of efficient, safe, and affordable battery technology is crucial to the all-round electrification of the drive system. Daimler is therefore developing state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries.
    • 4 The battery is the key to electrification of the drivetrain. Daimler is therefore developing state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries, and is thus the world’s first carmaker to develop and – as of 2012 – to manufacture and distribute its own batteries for automotive use.lithium-ion battery

Daimler is developing state-of-the-art Together with its partners, Daimler lithium-ion batteries. is leading the way in automotive battery technology.

    • 8 Hybrid drives are a significant component of Daimler’s strategy for sustainable mobility. For example, they combine an internal combustion engine and an electric motor; these can be operated either individually or in tandem. To this end, Daimler has developed a modular plug-in hybrid unit suitable for all hybrid drive variants.hybrid module

In 2009, Daimler became the first European manufacturer to launch a volume-produced hybrid car in the shape of the Mercedes- Benz S 400 HYBRID. The modular concept implemented in this premium passenger car for the first time shows how it possible to realize hybrid drive solutions in a wide The modular hybrid system highlights innovative approaches range of configurations efficiently and in to drivetrain electrification. line with demand. The Mercedes-Benz Vision S 500 Plug- in HYBRID points the way ahead for the modular hybrid system. Its hybrid module even allows purely electric driving. The more powerful electric motor differs only slightly from the hybrid module in the Mercedes-Benz S 400 HYBRID and, like its counterpart here, is disc-shaped and integrated in the 7G-TRONIC housing.
