Mercedes Vito and Viano Diesel Maxi Vans Receive Intelligent Alternators
New generator management is said to reduce fuel consumption. Mercedes-Benz Vito and Viano with enhanced BlueEFFICIENCY package will be introduced next month. During braking, the new Alternator management system converts part of the kinetic energy produced into electric energy, which is then stored in the standard battery. Overvolting to store additional energy into the system means that the alternators output can be throttled or cut out completely while accelerating.
