Mercedes-Benz presents the new S-class with floor mats made with ECONYL regenerated nylon
The S-Class stands for the fascination of MERCEDES-BENZ: legendary and traditional engineering expertise defines the luxury segment in the automobile industry. The new S-Class can be experienced with all the senses – seeing, feeling, hearing and smelling – while offering numerous innovations that allow humans not only to travel comfortably and work relaxed, but also to feel (thanks to the interior spaces) as in a “third place”, a refuge between home and workplace.

The S-Class is the world’s best-selling luxury saloon. With the latest generation they want to offer their customers innovation, safety, comfort and quality as never before.
More than 98 kg of components made from resource-conserving materials are used in the S-Class. The number of components containing recyclates is now 120 – more than twice as many as in the preceding model. Another 40 kg or so are made from renewable raw materials. The process of environmentally compatible development with specific targets is firmly embedded in the overall development process. Environmental aspects are already taken into account in the conceptual phase.

A new, recycled thread is now used for the floor coverings. This thread is ECONYL®regenerated nylon. It is manufactured by recovering nylon waste destined for the landfill, for example old fish nets and fabric remnants from mills and carpets. These are collected and transformed into a new thread having the same properties as nylon from new raw materials. The recycling process used to produce the thread saves CO2in comparison with new production. It also enables Mercedes-Benz to keep materials in circulation.
