At the vanguard of a huge hybrid model roll-out, the C350e is the most affordable way to own a green Mercedes-Benz.
Following in the footsteps of the S-Class plug-in hybrid, the C-Class executive saloon based model uses a 2.0 litre four cylinder petrol engine alongside a 60kW electric motor for power.
This will give tips on how to save fuel by building pedal resistance when you are about to engage the petrol engine, or by giving a double pulse when the car’s systems reckon you can lift-off and coast to save energy.
Unsurprisingly, considering Mercedes return to focusing on high-level technology systems, the C350e comes across as a micro-S Class when it comes to driving – quite the complement.
Quiet around town, comfortable out on the open road and extremely frugal, the plug-in hybrid Mercedes is intelligently efficient and will help owners become better at frugal driving.
The C350e is ideal for those who spend a lot of their time in or around cities where the electric motor will make a huge difference to running costs.
