What is Mercedes-Benz EQ-Boost?

Mercedes-Benz EQ


If you’re wondering what MB EQ-Boost is, it’s a new technology that Mercedes-Benz has developed to provide electric motor support to combustion engines. Sounds like a hybrid, right? The difference here is that EQ-Boost is a very mild version of hybrid technology, only providing an electric force of an additional 21 hp in short bursts to add momentum to your vehicle, allowing it to coast more with less burden on your engine. This helps to improve performance in gas cars while increasing fuel economy. Read on to learn about how EQ-Boost works, and then, apply for financing and test drive a vehicle with EQ-Boost near Oakville at Mercedes-Benz Burlington!

How Does EQ-Boost Work?

Now that Milton drivers know what Mercedes-Benz EQ-Boost is, let’s take a look at the nitty-gritty details and explore its functions. Basically, EQ-Boost uses an integrated starter generator positioned between your transmission and engine. It functions as a starter motor, electric motor, and alternator all in one device. As we mentioned earlier, its main function is to supply short bursts of electric power to cut back on gas combustion and allow your vehicle to accelerate and maintain speeds while coasting off the momentum it generates. It also:

  • Powers a 48-volt system that is used to generate your standard 12-volt power system.
  • Allows your engine block to do away with pulleys and belts, meaning that your engine will be much smaller. This decreases your vehicle weight, which increases your efficiency and makes your vehicle accelerate more swiftly—not to mention, you’ll save on future belt replacements!
  • It recoups energy from your vehicle and supplies its own electric motor battery with kinetic energy.
  • Eliminates turbo lag.
  • Finally, it smooths out the clunkiness of stop/start systems.
