What is BlueTEC® Technology?

January 26th, 2018 by


Mercedes-Benz has been creating innovation in the automotive industry for years, and the latest and greatest piece from the well-known manufacturer is the BlueTEC® clean diesel technology. BlueTEC® models offer high fuel efficiency, low emissions, and deliver incredible performance that make them sought-after by the masses. Using an array of technology, BlueTEC® creates powerful combustion to make it earth friendly everywhere it goes.


While people in Old Bridge have been driving diesel vehicles for years, the BlueTEC® lineup delivers so much more. With an innovative liquid solution known as AdBlue, BlueTEC® vehicles change the way they harness the road. When injected into the exhaust system, the AdBlue converts harmful emissions into non-harmful oxygen and nitrogen, making it better for the world. In addition, BlueTEC® vehicles can use ultralow-sulfur fuels or B5 biodiesel, which is also a great way to reduce the carbon footprint.

BlueTEC® and More

While BlueTEC® will do a lot to change the way Marlboro drivers want to experience a clean world, it’s not the only thing Mercedes-Benz is doing to create a greener planet. In fact, Mercedes-Benz has been breaking the most on eco-friendly cars for quite some time, and the following innovations were designed to prove it:

  • Clear Commitment—keeping drivers in motion through sustainable approaches
  • Fuel Cell Drive Technology—CFC-free cars and low-emissions SUVs
  • HYBRID Drive—various blue-gin hybrid models for high performance
  • Flexible Fuel Vehicles—choose between traditional petroleum or opt for E85
  • BlueEFFICIENCY—a suite of electric vehicles with luxurious style
