Plug-in hybrids bring customers the best of two worlds: in town they run in all-electric mode, while on long journeys they benefit from the range of the combustion engine. They make the vehicle more efficient overall, because they can firstly recover energy during braking and secondly allow the combustion engine to run in favourable operating ranges.

By the end of 2019 Mercedes-Benz will have more than ten plug-in hybrids in its range an attractive portfolio from compact models to the flagship Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The aim is to be able to offer customers well over 20 model variants in 2020.

With the A 250 e (weighted fuel consumption 1.5-1.4 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions 34-33 g/km, weighted power consumption 15.0-14.8 kWh/100 km), the A 250 e Saloon (weighted fuel consumption 1.4 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions 33-32 g/km, weighted power consumption 14.8 -14.7 kWh/100 km)1 and the B 250 e (weighted fuel consumption 1.6-1.4 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions 36-32 g/km, weighted power consumption 15.4-14.7 kWh/100 km)1, models in the compact car family with third-generation hybrid drive are now celebrating their premiere. They use a hybrid power unit with the 8G-DCT dual-clutch transmission.

In models with a longitudinally installed engine, the electric motor has been redesigned for the 9G-TRONIC plug-in hybrid transmission, and is conceived as an indoor-running, permanently agitated, synchronous motor. The likewise new, significantly enhanced power electronics have allowed significant increases in power and torque density. One of the greatest innovations is the torque converter with an integrated torque converter lockup clutch. The new GLE 350 de 4MATIC (weighted fuel consumption 1.1 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions 29 g/km, weighted power consumption 25.4 kWh/100 km)1 achieves a range of over 100 kilometres with an appropriate driving style, thanks to a battery with a capacity of 31.2 kWh.
