Speaking at the Geneva Show, DaimlerChrysler boss Dieter Zetsche said that its Bluetec diesel technology will be available in Europe by 2008 at the latest. The technology will be launched in the US this September when it will appear in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Bluetec is a clean diesel system. Mercedes-Benz CDI vehicles equipped with Bluetec are described by the company as the cleanest diesels in the world.

The company says they have the potential to comply with the most stringent
emission standards anywhere in the world.
