Mercedes-Benz Now Accepting Orders For C350 Plug-In Hybrid
Insideevs


The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate, C 350 Plug-In Hybrid, described earlier here and presented at the 2015 NAIAS, is now available for order.

In Germany, the price was set at €50,961.75 (over $57,700) for the Saloon version and at €52,627.75 (over $59,600) for the longer Estate version. All those prices include VAT, so in the US pricing should be much lower.

Dealers will get the first batch of C350 Plug-In Hybrids in March.

Air suspension and pre-entry climate control will be standard, although pre-entry climate control is now standard for almost all plug-ins.

Up to 31 km or 19 miles of all-electric range on a small 6.38 kWh battery pack is not a high value, but European plug-in hybrids typically do not have long electric range.

Could there be a Mondeo Estate Energi plug-inhybrid in the near future for Europe? The current Fusion Energi offers (21 miles) EPA 19 EV miles from it's larger 7.6 kWh battery pack.

Europe is already getting the Mondeo Hybrid, so the Mondeo Estate Energi should be a logical step.

A wagon is still a heavier vehicle and it would come at the cost of cargo space and a flat load floor which is probably the main reason somebody prefers the wagon to the car. This is one of the reasons why we won't see Escapes, Edges, Explorers with Hybrid systems because their utility is so significantly compromised with Ford's bolt-on hybrid approach.

re: this MB
UN-impressive (except that it EXISTS (or will soon)) and OVER-priced
((edit: I didn't see them say "turbo" anywhere but at 211hp assume the not-quite 2-liter must be, no?...))

Nice to see support for my (other) MODES rant tho.

guess MB believes the way to go is the sport-PIH...
...well eventually, when EVERYbody else has one, FLincMoCo might join in
