Intelligent energy management

Significant savings can also come from a series of small contributions. With the aim of making the GLK more fuel-efficient, the Mercedes-Benz engineers examined all the main components with regard to their energy usage and found ways of getting them to work more economically.

The efficient energy management at a glance:

  • Efficient alternator management: the kinetic energy from braking and coasting is used to charge the battery.
  • More efficient fuel management: the pumping pressure of the fuel pump is based on the precise amount of fuel needed at the time.
  • Air conditioning only as required: if not required, the compressor is automatically decoupled from the engine's belt drive.
