The new Mercedes-Benz E300 BlueTEC Hybrid is on sale now priced from £39,645.00 OTR for the saloon and £41,435.00 OTR for the estate. It is designed to be capable of combining performance and efficiency, in standard form it can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 7.5 seconds. It can achieve a maximum speed of 150 mph and can return 67 mpg while emitting as little as 109 g/km of CO2.
This extraordinary economy is made possible through a hybrid system linked to the efficient four-cylinder diesel engine; an electric motor is mounted within the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission. The gearbox substitutes a torque converter for a wet clutch system, therefore allowing for the internal combustion engine to be disengaged entirely via the clutch and for electric-only drive to be maintained for short periods, boosting economy. The system is intricately packaged within the vehicle so as not to impact on the load capacity of the E-Class in any way.
Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels the 16-inch wheels can be fitted as a no-cost option to achieve the lowest possible CO2 and economy figures. Also included is leather upholstery, Becker Map Pilot Navigation and LED daytime running lights. The new Mercedes-Benz E300 BlueTEC Hybrid is available to order now.
