Following its premiere in the S-Class, Mercedes-Benz is now offering its most advanced hybrid technology yet in the C-Class and, for the first time, also in an Estate model. The dynamism and efficiency of the C 350 e (PLUG-IN HYBRID )make it a convincing proposition in both its Saloon and its Estate guise. With a range of 31 km (19 mi) in purely electric mode, local emission-free driving is now a reality.
Following the C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID, the C 350 e (PLUG-IN HYBRID) is the second hybrid model in the new C-Class and the second Mercedes-Benz model to feature PLUG-IN HYBRID technology. Thanks to the combination of combustion engine and electric drive, hybrid drive systems deliver impressively low consumption, but with high performance. The electric motor is able to replace or support the combustion engine in situations where the combustion engine does not perform quite so well, and makes practical use of energy generated while braking by converting it into electric energy and storing it.
