Previously unveiled at the Auto Guangzhou Show, the C 350 e Plug in Hybrid will officially be introduced by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia on 5 October. With the C 350 e as the first of Plug in Hybrids, Mercedes-Benz has revealed plans to introduce additional Plug in Hybrid models, from now until next year.
The Mercedes-Benz C 350 e combines efficiency, dynamism and comfort on an extraordinarily high level. The model captivates with the performance of a sports car while nonetheless delivering a certified fuel consumption of just 2.1 liters per 100 kilometers (48 g CO2/km) and up to 31 km of all-electric driving. From a displacement of just under two liters, the four-cylinder petrol engine in the C 350 e produces 155 kW (211 hp) and maximum torque of 350 newton meters. The electric motor has an output of up to 60 kW and delivers torque of 340 Nm. A total system output of 205 kW (279 hp), as well as system torque of 600 Nm, are thus available to be called upon by the standard-fit 7G-TRONIC PLUS 7-speed automatic transmission.
The high overall system output and intelligent engine management give the car the driving dynamics of a sports car. The vehicle combines this with the ride comfort of a premium sedan, along with valid fuel consumption and environmental factors. The C 350e can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and reach .a top speed of 250 km/h, consuming a certified fuel consumption of 2.1 liters per 100 km. This corresponds to CO2 emissions of 48 grams per km. The C 350 e also offers the possibility of driving up to 31 km in all-electric mode, and thus completely free of CO2 emissions locally, for example in the city.
In addition, the C 350 e is equipped with air suspension and pre-entry climate control as standard equipment; already available in the C-Class. Thanks to the AIRMATIC air suspension, ride comfort is enhanced and at the same time, the comprehensive pre-entry climate control system, which can be controlled via the internet, offers a much improved ride and climate comfort.
Depending on the specifications available locally, the C 350 e is supplied with the AVANTGARDE exterior equipment line including sports radiator grille and centrally positioned star. As an alternative, the C 350 e is also valid with the EXCLUSIVE exterior equipment line with a classic radiator grille and three-pointed star on the bonnet.
Further information on the new Mercedes-Benz C 350 e will be made available soon after the launch.
