The New Standards are summarized under 3 main headings:
- New Safety Standards
- New Comfort Standards
- New Economic Driving Standards
1. New Safety Standards
Turning Assistant (Side Guard Assist): Thanks to this equipment that contributes to the safety of both the driver, pedestrians and other drivers, while the buses turn right and while driving; Safer overtaking, reduction of the risk of accidents during take-offs and low-speed rides, and better perception of pedestrians and vehicles waiting at traffic lights.
Attention Assist: This equipment, which aims to increase driving safety by warning drivers who are driving without rest, monitors driver behavior while cruising above 60 km / h and recommends the driver to take a break with visual and vibration warning in careless driver behavior.
Turn Light: The new headlights, which provide increased turning safety, are activated at speeds less than 40 km / h or when the signal is activated. At these moments, the fog lights turn into turning lights. While the lighting effect is increased, the driver can maneuver safely and practically.
Stop & Go Assistant: This equipment, which can be described as one of the stages on the road to autonomous driving, contributes to driving comfort and safety. The vehicle can re-move automatically after being stationary for less than two seconds. When the standstill time exceeds two seconds, driving is restarted if the driver presses the accelerator pedal or the function button on the steering wheel.
In addition to these equipment in Mercedes-Benz buses; Parking Sensor / Assistant, which gives visual warning with colored LED lights on the side view mirrors, and Hill Start Support, which prevents unwanted forward and backward shifts and makes taking off and maneuvering more comfortable, are also offered as standard.
In all Mercedes-Benz intercity buses manufactured as of 2021, high-performance particulate filters with new antiviral effects are offered as standard against the Covid-19 epidemic, while a new air conditioning system is offered as an option. Thanks to the new air conditioning system, the air inside the buses can be completely changed every two minutes. Thanks to these equipment, which can be added to existing buses in addition to new bus orders, safer and more peaceful journeys can be made. The new equipment was developed as a result of the collaboration of Mercedes-Benz Türk Hoşdere Bus R&D Center with teams in Germany. Software updates are available for passenger bus climate control, which can further increase the rate of clean air. This additional fresh air content of the air conditioner demonstrably reduces the risk of infection for drivers and passengers. The multi-layer, progressively structured high performance particulate filters also have an antiviral functional layer. Active filters; It can be used for ceiling air conditioner, recirculation air filters and front box air conditioner. Active filters, which are suitable for intercity and city buses, can be applied to existing vehicles optionally. Vehicles equipped with active filters are also marked with a sticker on the passenger doors that the passenger can see.
2. New Standards of Comfort
Developing new equipment according to the demands from the market, Mercedes-Benz adapts its global products to local needs in 2021 and offers more comfort equipment not only for passengers but also for everyone in the bus.
USB units are offered as standard in all passenger seats, marking a first in the bus industry. The tools can be charged. Thanks to the fabricated USBs compatible with the electrical infrastructure of the buses, the safety and comfort level of the vehicles increases. In double seats, dual USB ports are located in the middle of the seat, while in 2+1 seats, USB ports are positioned on the side wall. Lighting is also provided at the USB ports, providing easy access during night trips.
Thanks to the new seat rail system offered for businesses that will prefer a new Mercedes-Benz bus in 2 + 1 seat layout, it is easier to reposition the seats and prevent loss of value.
3. New Economic Driving Standards
Mercedes-Benz buses, which set a new standard in the sector with the new economical driving package; With its predictive driving system, automatic body lowering, tire pressure monitoring and Eko driving assistant, it provides fuel savings of up to 4+ percent. Powershift automatic transmission is offered as standard in this new economical driving package. MB GO 250-8 Powershift works as an 8 forward 1 reverse automatic transmission system. Thanks to the gearbox, which reduces fuel consumption with fast and optimum gear shifts, the clutch pedal is also eliminated. With the new transmission, the driving condition of the driver increases and thus more contribution can be made to traffic safety.
Thanks to the Predictive Driving System (PPC), Mercedes-Benz offers fuel economy and comfort. Using digital road maps and GPS information covering 95 percent of European and Turkish highways, gear shifting zamThe system, which optimizes gear selection with its moments, contributes to fuel savings.
The Predictive Driving System can go above or below the speed recorded in the cruise control system by a certain tolerance. When this system is used with all its functions, it not only saves fuel but also zamIt also eases the burden of the driver.
With the automatic body lowering feature, when the vehicle reaches a speed of 80 km / h, an advantage in air friction is achieved thanks to the body that lowers 20 mm. This system, which has a positive effect on fuel consumption, works automatically. When the speed of the vehicle decreases again below 60 km / h, this time the body rises 20 mm and becomes its standard position. The automatic body lowering system makes a significant contribution in the fields of economy, environment and safety.
