Mercedes-Benz Produces the Best Diesel Cars
Gasoline engines have been the most popular among car manufacturers ever since the combustion engine was used to power the first car back in 1876 by Karl Benz (co-founder of Mercedes-Benz). It is still considered the main choice by many manufacturers despite the fact that the world is transitioning towards electric or gasoline-electric hybrid cars. However, there is another type of fuel that has been alongside gasoline all these years and that fuel source is known as diesel.
Diesel engines are still popular among heavy-duty vehicle industry for trucks and buses, but now this fuel type has moved over to the passenger vehicle market. Many great car manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz always release diesel powered models each car. The reason for that are the advantages of diesel over gasoline. Diesel is more fuel efficient and environmental friendly than gasoline. Although it costs almost same as the gasoline or even more in some states, it makes up to it by all the advantages it has.
Mercedes-Benz has always been an innovative company and has changed the game in car production many times throughout the history. When it comes to diesel engines, they have not held back in this area as well. They have taken the idea of the diesel engine being eco-friendly and maximized the output of that. The introduction of the BlueTEC technology from Mercedes-Benz has taken a huge step into the future of diesel-powered cars.
The BlueTEC models from Mercedes-Benz are one of the most efficient diesel engine powered cars in the world. This technology equips the car with advanced parts that help minimize the NOx (Nitrogen oxide) output from the exhaust. It uses an SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system which with the help of diesel liquid fluid and DeNOx, it reduces the NOx output. The reduction of the NOx is through the specially designed catalytic converter for Mercedes-Benz cars. The output through the exhaust is just pure nitrogen and water particles which is incredibly healthy for environment.
