Mercedes-Benz introduces their new-generation plug-in electric car, the C-Class C350e Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV).
Official performance figures claim 0-62mph time of 5.9sec for the saloon and 6.2sec for the estate. Top speed is put at 155mph and 153mph respectively.
The driver can choose between five different driving modes: Economy, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual. On top of this, there are four operating modes: Hybrid, E-mode, E-save and Charge. Each mode varies the energy recuperation, coasting and gearbox characteristics, with E-mode allowing the C350 Plug-in Hybrid to run in electric mode for a claimed distance of up to 19.3 miles on a fully charged battery.
This extended electric range translates to headlining combined consumption of 134.5mpg for both the saloon and estate on the controversial European test procedure, providing the C350 Plug-in Hybrid with respective CO2 figures of just 48g/km and 49g/km.
Energy for the electric motor is provided by a 6.2kWh lithium ion battery mounted within the floor of the boot, reducing capacity by 15 litres (to 335 litres) in the saloon and by 30 litres (to 350 litres) in the estate compared with other C-class models.
Mercedes claims a recharge time of between two hours on regular 240V/13A household mains electricity and 1 hour 45 minutes on a 240V/16A system. The charge status of the battery along with a standard preset air conditioning function can be monitored via the internet.
