Looking very much like other non-hybrid C Class (with the exemption of the Mercedes-AMG-tuned variant), the C 350 e plug-in hybrid does not shout its green credentials brashly. Among the quiet proof of its eco-friendliness are its silent running and fewer trips to the petrol stations.
A generous helping of leather, aluminium and wood trimmings give the C 350 e a premium and feel-good experience inside while keeping the traffic hustle and bustle outside.
Full electric drive
The C 350 e’s hybrid battery has enough power to go 31km on a full electric charge. On electric vehicle mode, the car can go up to speeds of 130kph, which is very much faster than non-plug-in hybrids.
Fast and frugal
Even with a low fuel consumption of 2.1 litres per 100km, the C 350 e is sports car-like fast with a 0-100kph acceleration of 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 250kph.
Full use of boot
Clever partially-raised flat boot layout (to accommodate the hybrid battery) ensures you still have enough room for luggage and other stuff.
