Reiner Vorderradantrieb – 4MATIC nicht verfügbar

Der Antrieb für den EQV erfolgt ausschließlich über die Vorderachse mittels Elektromotors (als Teil des elektrischen Antriebsstanges eATS) mit 150 kW Leistung. Der E-Motor mit 3 Phasen und 6 Polen ist dabei ein asynchron drehende Induktionsmotor, welcher als Motor oder als Generator betrieben werden kann. Der Stator wird durch ein Wasser/-Glykol-Kreislauf gekühlt. Die Dauerleistung liegt bei 70 kW, die Peak-Leistung bei 150 kW. Der Serviceintervall im EQV liegt bei 40.000 km oder bei einem Jahr.

Der EQV 300 verfügt über eine Batteriekapazität von 100 kWh, wobei die nutzbare Batteriekapazität bei 90 kWh liegt. Die Lithium-Ionen Batterie ist im Unterboden verbaut, das Gewicht – mit Crashstruktur – beträgt rund 700 kg. Ein wasserbasiertes Thermomanagmentsystem hält die Batterie möglichst im Temperaturfenster von 25-35 Grad Celsius.

Über das kombinierte Ladesystem kann das Fahrzeug mittels Wechselstroms (AC) sowie Gleichstrom (DC) per Typ 2 bzw. CCS2-Stecker geladen werden. Die AC Ladeleistung liegt bei 11 kW, bei DC bis zu 110 kW. Somit kann das Fahrzeug innerhalb von knapp 45 Minuten von 10 auf 80 % SoC (für 90 kWh) geladen werden. Eine Batterieerweiterung für erhöhte Reichweite ist nicht möglich.

Für die Batterie wird ein Batteriezertifikat mitgeliefert, was eine Leistungskapazität von mindestens 180 Ah nach 8 Jahren oder 160.000 km Laufleistung garantiert.

Ab einer Restreichweite von unter 50 km wird die Reservewarnlampe aktiviert, unterhalb von 20 wird die Vortriebsleistung (Ansprechverhalten des Gaspedals) reduziert. Ab einer Restreichweite von unter 10 km wird keine Restreichweite angezeigt.

Der EQV 300 ist mittels entsprechenden Ladekabel in Deutschland über 3 Phasen mit je 16 A aufladbar (3 Phasen x 16 A x 230 V = 11 KW). Im Fall eines 1-phasigen Netzanschlusses kann bis zu 32 A geladen werden, sofern der Netzanschluss entsprechend abgesichert ist. Ab Werk liefert man ein Ladekabel Mode 3 (Typ 2, 3 x 20 A) mit 5 Meter Länge mit.

As at us the first pictures of the facelift the E-class Cabriolets are made, and marveled, saying to us quickly about the whereabouts of the old touchpad with a rotary push plate in the interior – even if the open version can already obtain IT and it is installed in the coupe counterpart, according to the new Generation of the touchpad.

Image material for the E-class Cabriolet is correct

In a telephone conference last Wednesday, Michael Kelz, the chief engineer of the Mercedes-Benz E-class – again, on the special facts of the old touchpad with a rotary push plate, a went. Therefore, the old Generation is here in front of all of the certification reasons, especially since there is a fixed target, where the control unit must be positioned for the convertible top. For a new design of the center console in addition, a new Test would have been necessary. As a result of a other roof operating unit in the E class Cabriolet in spite of its in addition, no gesture control would be possible, have you determined that the previous controls here maintain.

Why the touchpad with a rotary Pushbutton in the E Cabriolet is a verb love is

MBUX goes well with rotary-Push button the old COMAND Generation

Unconfirmed remains, of course, that saves money the old Touchpad mainly, especially as a new certification run would have had an effect not only in time but also financially set for life. So, the E-class Cabriolet is now a unique model, which receives the new MBUX infotainment system, but with the (quite comfortable) rotary push plate for the old COMAND-Generation support – but, unfortunately, with the old (and significantly worse) Touchpad has to do.

Already in the early days of the automobile, British racing driver and journalist Dorothy Levitt gives your Leserinenn advice: motorists should always have a hand mirror at the ready on Board, in order to him “to hold up and to see what is behind You”. The actual rear-view mirror has set only after the First world war.

The recommendation of the British jockey and author Dorothy Levitt

With the advice of Dorothy Levitt “to occasionally hold up to see what is behind you“was asked, the hand mirror should be “quite large to bring in order to really Use and the best one to handle: “should be fairly large to be really useful and it is better to have one with a handle“. Exactly the hand mirror looks within the exhibit series “33 Extras” of the Mercedes-Benz Museum.

The tip can be found in Levitts book “The Woman and the Car: A Chatty Little Handbook for All Women Who Motor or Who Want to Motor”, the 1909 appeared. It is a Council with a great practical relevance is. The 1882-born Englishwoman who paved the way for the car driving women as long been a successful racing driver. In April 1903, she participated as the first woman in Britain to a car race and wins in the following years, many race and class wins in the whole of Europe.

Solid mounting makes sense

The denser and faster the traffic is, the more useful a mirror is for looking back. Instead of him only from time to time in the Hand, was a fixed installation, however, make more sense. At the beginning of the 20th century. Century, many ideas on how this can be a rear-view mirror permanently in or on the automobile mount. As the first driver to use in the competition, built-in rear-view mirror, is called the American Ray Harroun. Using the innovative Details he wins the first 500-miles race at Indianapolis in 1911. Through the rear-view mirror, he can do without as the only racer in the field on a passenger who holds, at the time, usually to the rear of the lookout.

Rear-view mirror only after the First world war

The rear-view mirror is, however, only after the First world war. There are two different variants: in the Cockpit-mounted interior mirror and the side mirror caused. The current placement is developed only with time. So the 300 SL “Gullwing” (W 198) the interior mirror is not found in the presented in 1954, Mercedes-Benz at the top of the windshield, but it is mounted on the dashboard – as with the eponymous racing W 194) cars (from the year 1952. And in the case of the “tail fin”upper class limousines of the series W 111/112 (1959 to 1968) there are side mirrors on both the front fenders and the doors.

The exterior mirrors to improve first, only the point of view of the driver. Long you serve but also to the better: So the 220 model series in 1998 in the S-class in the Housings of the side mirrors LED turn signal Premiere. The light-emitting diodes are arranged so that they are flashing both to the front and to the side.

The rear-view mirror: the mirror to the camera

Due to its safety for the road transport legislation for the rearview mirror to be placed. Since 1925, the exterior mirrors are in Germany on the driver’s side for the load prescribed by the car. The combination of Inner – and side-view mirrors makes the German road traffic licensing regulations for passenger cars starting in 1956, to the condition, in the UK it is mandatory since 1978. But a second mirror is an integral part.

The rear-view mirror: the mirror to the camera

Development of technical solutions

Tricky the back view when reverse Parking a car is because of the angle of the rear-view mirror allows a detailed view on the distance between the Rear of the vehicle to any obstacles. Here, innovative solutions to remedy the situation. The PARKTRONIC by Mercedes-Benz measures the distance when Parking with ultrasound, you will be presented in 1995 and in the S-class of the 140 series Premiere. In 2005, the reversing camera comes in the S-class model series 221 – your image will be displayed directly on the screen in the Cockpit. This is significantly easier than the handle of the hand mirror of Dorothy Elizabeth Levitt.

In the United States of America and in Canada, rear-view cameras are for 2018 for new passenger cars required. And in Japan already in 2016 will adopt a law that allows during travel, the orientation on the camera and the screen instead of the classic rear-view mirror. Mercedes-Benz shows camera solutions for both Indoor and exterior mirrors back in 1996, in the F 200 Imagination research vehicle. In the new Mercedes-Benz Actros 2019 as a series solution of the MirrorCam Premiere. For the first time in a Truck series from loose moderately cameras and screens the classic mirrors.

Another mirror in the modern automobile is concealed in the sun visor in front of the passenger seat: He is not to be used, however, the orientation of the road, but the seated passenger can see themselves in it self. From this “personal use” (“strictly personal use”) of the hand mirror is by Dorothy Levitt, 1909 discourages your readers, however, during the journey.
