Following its premiere in the S-Class, Mercedes-Benz presenting its most sophisticated hybrid technology yet from the C-Class and, the very first time, and in an Estate model.
The dynamism and efficiency of your C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID turn it into a convincing proposition in its Saloon and it is Estate guise. With a choice of 31 kilometers (19 miles) in purely electric mode, local emission-free driving has become a fact.
Its four-cylinder petrol engine, jointly with an excellent electric motor, makes an overall total system production of 205 kW (279 hp) and torque of 600 Nm. The fresh C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID thus provides the performance of a performance car but without doubt offers certified consumption figures of just 2.1 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (112 mpg US) both as being a Saloon in addition to being an Estate. This corresponds to CO2 emissions of 48 grams (49 grams for your Estate) per kilometer.
Both models may also be equipped as standard with AIRMATIC air suspension as well as a Pre-Entry Heating and cooling system which can be controlled over the internet, accumulated to the truly exceptional degree of driving and climate comfort. The C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID will probably be at dealerships from March?2015.
Following the C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID, the C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID could be the second hybrid model during the new C-Class additionally, the second Mercedes-Benz model to feature PLUG-IN HYBRID technology. Because of mix of combustion engine and electric drive, hybrid drive systems deliver impressively low consumption, but with high quality. The electrical motor is capable of replace or aid the combustion engine in situations the location where the combustion engine does not perform quite so well, and makes practical by using energy generated while braking by converting it into electric power and storing it.
The C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID uses the currently most innovative method of hybrid technology. Its electrical energy unit is often a high-voltage lithium-ion battery which has a total capacity of 6.2 kWh, and this can be charged from another power supply thus makes an effective contribution on the low consumption and emission figures. It is water-cooled, weighs around 100 kilograms and it is mounted in the sheet steel housing underneath the rear axle for you to maximize crash safety, driving dynamics and boot space.
Thanks to a intelligent on-board charging system, electric battery can be recharged in around An hour Forty-five minutes at a wallbox or at on the list of growing wide variety of public charging points (230 V, 16 A, 3.7 kW single-phase), which occasionally offer privileged parking. Alternatively, charging through a standard domestic socket is naturally also possible. According to the connection, an electric power charge duration of around two hours is achievable (with 230 V and 13 A, 3.0 kW).
Despite the area absorbed via the battery, the C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID is still equipped with a boot capacity of 335 liters in its Saloon format and also of 350 while in the Estate model, maybe in rogues case of 1370 liters using the rear-seat backrests folded down and, as it ever was, a level load compartment floor.
PLUG-IN HYBRID in my ballet shoes now with four-cylinder petrol engine
In the latest Mercedes-Benz C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID, this hybrid drive concept is combined in my ballet shoes using an efficient four-cylinder petrol engine. From your displacement of less than two liters, it creates 155 kW (211 hp) and maximum torque of 350 Newton meters. Its direct injection system with spray-guided combustion uses electronically precise controlled multiple injection and fast multi-spark ignition to produce outstanding performance along with best quality and exemplary emissions. The electrical motor with the C 350 PLUG-IN HYBRID carries with it an production of up to 60 kW and delivers torque of 340 Newton meters. An overall system output of 205 kW (279 hp), and even torque of 600?Newton meters, therefore are on the market to be called upon.
7-speed automatic with a lot more clutch
The hybrid module from the standard 7-speed automatic transmission 7G-TRONIC PLUS incorporates their electric motor along with an additional clutch amongst the combustion engine plus the electric motor. When driving in all-electric mode, this decouples the combustion engine from your drive train. This also, however, affords the chance of moving off utilizing the combustion engine though the performance of the wet start-up clutch. The clutch this is a option to the torque converter.
The performance on the sports car
The high overall system output and intelligent engine management provide car the dynamic performance of an nimble racecar. And yes it combines this with the ride ease reasonably limited saloon, along with fuel consumption and environmental compatibility with a level that, until never assume all that long ago, may not need been expected of countless small cars. The Saloon can sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds, although the Estate, at 6.2 seconds, is nearly as quick off the mark. The Saloon can reach a high speed of 250 km/h and also the Estate as much as 246 km/h, in both conjunction with certified fuel usage of 2.1 liters per 100 kilometers (112 mpg US). This corresponds to CO2 emissions of 48 grams per kilometer (49 grams per kilometer for that Estate). Both variants from the C?350 PLUG-IN HYBRID provide possibly driving around 31 kilometers (19 miles) in all-electric mode, therefore totally free of CO2 emissions locally
