MB 2008 C-class KDI EVT technology (Camless)

Hello all -

Mercedes 2008 c-class supposedly had new camless valvetrain engine technology consisting of superchared KDI EVT technology. However, I cannot seem to find any reviews of the vehicle nor have I heard about the technology being used in subsequent mercedes models.

Does anyone know what happened with this technology if anything?

Link is below.

Its a pity that this engine is yet to make it to production. If freeing the engine from the clutches of the alternators and AC compreesor can increase eficiency of it by upto 4 km to a liter, freeing the valve gear functionality from the engine would result in some 10 km to a liter mileage improvement!
Maintaining magnetism required for the solenoid switches at temperatures over 1800 degree C could be the challange.
