Beginner Driver and Valet Service Mode

Driving modes with reduced acceleration characteristics: Leave your Mercedes-Benz wisely in the hands of other drivers.

  • Beginner Driver Mode: Helps provide a more relaxed introduction to the electric drive by adjusting the output of your vehicle to reach a maximum permissible speed of 75 mph

  • Valet Service Mode: Limits the output of your vehicle to a maximum permissible speed of 50 mph and restricts access to personal profile data when the vehicle is given to other drivers

 

Set boundaries when others take the wheel.

Valet Service Mode limits the power of your vehicle and restricts access to personal profile data when the vehicle is given to other drivers. Available acceleration is severely restricted over the entire speed range. Due to the reduced power, a maximum speed of 50 mph can be reached. The ESP stability program remains permanently activated so that it can support the driver at all times. Sport driving programs are not available when Valet Service Mode is activated. Your routes, addresses and profile data are not accessible to others when Valet Service Mode is selected, as a profile protection is activated for the profile stored in the vehicle. Thus, the data contained therein is protected from unauthorized access.

 

Makes acceleration easier to control.

Unlike vehicles with conventional drives, torque is available at any time in battery-powered electric vehicles. This may initially require drivers new to the vehicle to get used to the system, which can be facilitated by Beginner Driver Mode. Smoother acceleration enables a relaxed driving experience with the usual comfortable driving characteristics. To support beginner drivers, the performance of your vehicle is adjusted so that a maximum permissible speed of 75 mph can be reached. The ESP stability program remains permanently activated so that it can support the driver at all times. Sport driving programs are not available when Beginner Driving Mode is activated. The authorization concept prevents Beginner Driver Mode from being deselected by another user.
