New C350 Plug-in model addition is ‘plugged-in’ to the latest hybrid technology
The new C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID is switched onto the requirements of customers seeking incredible efficiency
The acclaimed C-Class has already scooped myriad trophies and received much critical acclaim, but with the arrival of an advanced new addition to the range the model is more talented than ever.
Using hybrid technology premiered in the flagship S-Class that showcases the manufacturer’s outstanding research and development into alternative powertrains, the new C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID is switched onto the requirements of customers seeking incredible efficiency yet at the same time offers equally outstanding levels of dynamism and comfort.
Available to order now from L&L Automotive Mercedes-Benz Retailers throughout Hertfordshire, the new C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID returns a staggering 134.5mpg (combined) from its combination of a 211hp four-cylinder petrol engine and 60kW electric motor. Using the electric motor alone, it has a range of 19 miles – making it ideal for local, emission free driving.
CO2 emissions of the C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID are as low as 48g/km and such is the car’s efficiency that both the available Saloon and Estate models are eligible for the Government’s full Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG) of £5,000. For as long as it is available, this significant grant lowers the cost of the C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID Saloon to £32,875 and the Estate to £34,075.
Although the C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID features a complex powertrain, its every day practicality is uncompromised. Thanks to the high-voltage battery that stores its electrical energy being mounted underneath the rear axle, the Saloon still offers a boot capacity of 335 litres and the Estate 350 litres. With the Estate’s rear seats folded flat, the load area increases to 1,370 litres. The intelligent on-board charging system also means the battery can be recharged in circa 90 minutes from a wallbox or at one of the growing number of public charging points, while a conventional domestic power socket can recharge the battery in around two hours.
The New C350 Plug-in; Efficiency, comfort and performance
With standard equipment including AIRMATIC air suspension plus a Pre-Entry Climate Control system that can be controlled via the internet, the C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID is superbly comfortable, but rest assured that it is a car that appeals as much to the heart as it does to the head.
While it is incredibly efficient and offers the ride comfort of a premium saloon, the advanced C-Class also has the performance to eclipse many a fully-fledged sports car. The Saloon can sprint from 0-62mph in only 5.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 155mph, while the Estate goes from 0-62mph in just 6.2 seconds and has a top speed of 152mph.
