Both the Mercedes-Benz ML 250 BlueTec 4Matic and the B 200 Natural Gas Drive are the new “Autotest Environmental Champions 2014”, according to a ranking that the Autotest product-testing magazine carried out with the ÖKO TREND institute for environmental research.
The institute's assessment is based on information relating to fuel consumption, pollutant emissions, the production process, logistics, recycling and the Mercedes-Benz environmental management systems.

As most of you know, the Mercedes-Benz B 200 Natural Gas Drive runs predominantly on gas, while a small 12-liter gasoline tank is also on board to increase its autonomy and for emergencies. This translates into CO2 emissions of just 115 g per kilometer, as the fuel consumption

The Mercedes-Benz ML 250 BlueTec 4Matic is currently the most fuel-efficient M-Class, until the facelifted plug-in hybrid arrives next year.

Sporting a sequentially-turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 204 hp and a healthy 500 Nm (369 lb ft) of torque, the fuel-sipping M-Class gets by on 5.8-liters of fuel per 100 km (40.6 mpg). Paired with the optional 93-liter tank, this translates into a range of 1600 km (994 miles) without refueling.
