Mercedes to sell diesel-powered SUVs starting '08
Mercedes-Benz unit will sell diesel-powered versions of its M- R- and GL-Class sport-utility vehicles, beginning in 2008 in the US market.

Mercedes-Benz said its Bluetec technology cuts nitrogen oxide emissions by adding a urea-based solution into the exhaust stream. There were a couple posts about this, including the news that MB failed the test in five states, but we later found out that it was not their goal to reach the strict exhaust standard in the five states (California, Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New York).

The new models will be the first diesel-powered vehicles to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's BIN5 emissions standards for all 50 states, the company said.
