Mercedes-Benz C350 e Plug-in Hybrid Does Not Come Cheap in Germany
The long-discussed and anticipated Mercedes-Benz C350 e plug-in hybrid version is now planned to be introduced in Germany, with the entry-level C350 e Sedan to cost a rough 50,961 euros, while the Estate would go higher, with a 52,627-euro price.
The model will be soon launched in the United States as well, coming with the same features, like the so called Avantgarde exterior body kit, which consists of the now sportier radiator grille. Apart from the Avantgarde, both the Sedan and the Estate can also be had with the Exclusive exterior body kit.
Since we are talking here about a plug-in hybrid, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C350 e plug-in hybrid will be powered by a conventional 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit, developing a good 208 horsepower. This unit will be backed by an electric motor with 60 kW, hooked to a lithium-ion battery. The Mercedes-Benz C350 e plug-in hybrid will thus come with an overall power of 275 horsepower and an impressive 600 Nm of torque.
This should be enough for the Sedan plug-in hybrid version to score out a good 5.9 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, at a top speed of 250 km/h. On the other hand, the Estate is going a little bit higher, meaning 6.2 seconds for the same mileage.
Another advantage of the Mercedes-Benz C350 e plug-in hybrid is that it comes with an impressive low-fuel efficiency of just 2.1L per every 100 km/h. More than that, the battery takes just 1 hour and 30 minutes for a full recharge.
