sgCarMart – We often select desirable traits from different sources and combine them genetically at one spot. Scientists call it cross-breeding.
While there isn't a generic term to coin such method in the automotive world, we seem to have the perfect example - the E300 BlueTEC Hybrid.
For those unfamiliar with the three-pointed star, BlueTEC is another fanciful name (thought out by the marketing people, of course) for its diesel powerplants with emission reducing technologies. And 'Hybrid' simply means that there is a lump of electric motor lying somewhere within the drivetrain.
Unlike the other hybrids we have test driven before, the E300 is the first that uses a diesel engine. With the oil burner sipping less fuel than a comparatively-sized petrol engine, its half the battle won.
And before we carry on any further, the E300 hybrid has already won the 'Most fuel economical car in the luxury segment'. If you ask us, that sounds like some ingenious cross-breeding at work.
