The real-time data provided by CAP even allows a consumer to compare vehicles to their own car. The comparisons can be saved and emailed to users as well.
Data in the comparisons include cost-efficiency, residual value, and optional extras. Sally Dennis of Mercedes-Benz UK said, “We have worked hard at Mercedes-Benz to ensure we are competitive in terms of standard equipment, CO2 emissions, and economy, and are pleased to be able to offer a tool that delivers intelligent analysis and drives consideration for the Mercedes-Benz brand and product offering. We hope this tool will help users see how competitive we are in the market and encourage them to take another look at Mercedes-Benz and see that the numbers work.”
The brand plans to launch new hybrid vehicles, including the S 300 BlueTEC Hybrid and the C 300 BlueTEC Hybrid, this summer.
