“e” replaces the words PLUG-IN HYBRID.
Extra impetus for the Mercedes-Benz strategic hybrid initiative: In the run-up to 2017 the company is bringing out a total of ten Plug-In Hybrid models, one new model with high-tech-hybrid drive every four months on average. Following the successful launch of the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID, this month will see the C 350 e, the second model to feature the progressive drive concept, find its way to dealerships. And what might happen next with the strategic hybrid initiative has just been demonstrated by the Concept V-ision e study at the Geneva Motor Show. Under the new Mercedes-Benz nomenclature, an “e” replaces the words PLUG-IN HYBRID.
S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID:
Fuel consumption combined: 2.8 l/100 km;
combined CO₂ emissions: 65 g/km.*
C 350 e:
Fuel consumption combined: 2.4-2.1 l/100 km;
combined CO₂ emissions: 55-48 g/km.*
