Hi

So i was today old, that I found out Mercedes Me just launched a new app called Eco Coach. It can basically make your electric driving into an achievement game and you can compete with the average Mercedes electric car fleet And it seems you can win prizes even though they doesn’t look like you get an individual interest, but instead you can add you points to some kind sustainably projects which Mercedes have already chosen.

how many of you have this available in the app or play -store?

Seems to be available in some countries such as Germany, France, recently UK seem to be confirmed. Surprisingly not in Ireland at the moment (Android attached).


Here is some advice -


I have enjoyed the car's luxury and performance so haven't been the most efficient so far, but the car apparently has it's own mini "apps" in some countries, like "ECO display" menu lights up bars depending how efficient you drive and has a "Bonus from start" kilometers-saved number.

And if you select a destination in Mercedes navigation, plus you are in D-Auto "gear" and choose "ECO Assist" menu, it prompts you when to lift accelerator (probably earlier than you might otherwise). And if you select "Eco" dynamic mode instead of "Comfort" then you might find acceleration slower unless you really floor throttle.

For extreme efficiency, you would need keep to a low steady speed like under 40kph but keeping to this road speed may not be legal or considerate on most roads so I wouldn't take it that far! And you would need avoid using ac and (possibly) keep climate control at setting 1 fan speed to avoid window and mind fogging up too much and (possibly) set to a low temperature! You would still need use ac (maybe) once weekly to keep it functioning well! And ideally you would travel when around 22c celsius temperature outside and maybe high above sea level for reduced wind resistance and probably use narrow 19" tyres etc

As dar says it is available in France and I am an avid user. Since getting my car mid Sept I have acquired 126,525 points plus another 29,000 points already redeemed for a 5euro voucher to use on Mercedes’ me charge. As yet I have not used public charges but I am going on a trip tomorrow for a few days when I will so I will report back on if how the voucher was redeemed.
My big takeaway using the app is how much they want you to restrict the level of charge of the battery with suggestions you only use fast charging if necessary and keep the battery 80% or below most of the time. As a result I tend to keep mine at 50% in general and plug in when at home to top up and it works a treat. it has some good data re efficiency, how many kwh you have used over 5 days, 5 weeks and 5 months And how your efficiency compares to the group. I would strongly recommend the app to anyone who can download it.
