Benefit from a PPC retrofit now - a highly worthwhile investment!

This innovative system links GPS data and topographic maps with the Mercedes PowerShift 3 system. Gear selection and speed are adapted predictively and fully automatically to the individual road conditions to be encountered by means of cruise control:

The result: an optimisation of fuel efficiency that pays even for low mileages. Calculate your own savings potential here now! Use the PDF provided.

    The principle is incredibly simple.

    PPC uses momentum peaks before climbs, shifts down during the climb, throttles back before crests and allows the vehicle to coast on downhill stretches with minor momentum peaks. With these tactics PPC reduces consumption by up to 5 %!
