Mercedes-Benz introduces their new-generation plug-in electric car, the C-Class C350e.
Official performance figures claim 0-62mph time of 5.9sec for the saloon and 6.2sec for the estate, with top speed of 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.
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.
Available to lease from under £300 a month ex. VAT (based on 48 months, 10k annual mileage), in addition to all the other financial and environmental benefits of ULEVs, this has to be one of the most desirable company car options.
