Daimler spends approximately $20 million every day on research and development, about half of which goes towards efforts to reduce CO2. This occurs through investments in hybrid and fuel cell technology, as well as optimising internal combustion engines with greater fuel economy and reduced pollutant and noise emissions.

Environmental protection in product development.

Vehicle development is a standardized process in which the vehicle final specifications and the quality gates (milestones in the development process) form the basic cornerstones. Environmental protection issues and requirements (fuel consumption, emissions,
prohibited or prescribed materials, Life Cycle Assessments, and recycling requirements) are integral parts of the specification book and are taken into account and managed throughout the entire product creation process within the framework of the quality gates. Mercedes-Benz Cars fully complies with the requirement that environmental aspects be included in the product development process in line with the international environmental standard ISO TR 14062 and the expanded criteria of TÜV Management Service GmbH. It also fulfills all of the requirements of ISO 14001 and EMAS concerning the product-related part of the environmental management system.

The recent focus on electric mobility, particularly since the auto shows in 2009, has given many people the impression that the age of electric vehicles has already begun. While it is true that electric vehicles harbor tremendous CO2 - reduction potential and also
boast low emissions and produce little noise, it will take some time before they can be produced on a large scale. This is mainly due to the fact that production costs for appropriate batteries and fuel cells are currently high, as well as the lack of a comprehensive network of battery recharging and hydrogen filling stations. In addition, emission-free mobility would require the widespread availability of energy produced from renewable sources.

Nonetheless, Daimler is already ushering in the future of electric mobility with the smart electric drive and the B-Class F-CELL. With the near-series Concept BlueZERO the company shows a modular drive concept for electric vehicles.
