Right from the early development stages, great importance was attached to using materials in the new Mercedes-Benz GLS that are low on emissions and recyclable. The new Mercedes-Benz GLS achieves a materials recycling level of 85 percent and recoverability of 95 percent according to the ISO 22628 calculation model.
Examples of environmentally materials and processes include:
- Energy-saving, highly durable LED technology for numerous lighting functions both outside the vehicle and in the interior as well
- Innovative painting procedures for minimum environmental impact
- Use of materials with very good recycling characteristics and low emissions during production, processing and use
