The integrated safety concept from Mercedes-Benz

Safe driving

During an accident

After an accident

To reduce consequential damage after an accident and support the work of the rescue services, a number of different actions are initiated, depending on the type and severity of the accident:

  • Greatest possible protection: The engine can be switched off automatically and the fuel supply cut off.

    Conspicuous lighting: The hazard warning lamps and emergency interior lighting can be activated automatically to prevent follow-on accidents and make it easier to find the accident vehicle.

    Optimum rescue measures: The doors can be unlocked automatically.
