The 4-cylinder diesel engine of the E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid produces 204 horsepower, which is combined with a 20 kW electric motor. The result is the most economical luxury-class vehicle in the world.? The powertrain will be offered in both the sedan and Estate wagon.
“With these two E-Class models we are now continuing our comprehensive hybrid offensive. The modular technology opens up a quick way for us to complement other model series with hybrid models”, explains Professor Dr. Thomas Weber, Daimler Board Member for Group Research and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. “With a clear focus on the different requirements of global markets, we are able to offer precisely the models which our customers want. The E-Class hybrids provide a clear reduction in consumption as well as a very impressive driving experience: they represent hybrid motoring at the premium level.”
The new models do not require their passengers to have to compromise when it comes to space, however, whether in terms of the interior or the luggage compartment.
