5 things carsifu likes about the Mercedes- Benz C350e

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - SNAPSHOTS -

Un­der­stated el­e­gance

Look­ing very much like other non- hy­brid C Class ( with the ex­emp­tion of the Mercedes- AMG- tuned variant), the C 350 e plug- in hy­brid does not shout its green cre­den­tials brashly. Among the quiet proof of its eco- friend­li­ness are its silent run­ning and fewer trips to the petrol sta­tions.

Full use of boot

Clever par­tially- raised flat boot lay­out ( to ac­com­mo­date the hy­brid bat­tery) en­sures you still have enough room for lug­gage and other stuff.

Plush in­te­rior

A gen­er­ous help­ing of leather, alu­minium and wood trim­mings give the C 350 e a pre­mium and feel­good ex­pe­ri­ence in­side while keep­ing the traf­fic hus­tle and bus­tle out­side.

Full elec­tric drive

The C 350 e’s hy­brid bat­tery has enough power to go 31km on a full elec­tric charge. On elec­tric ve­hi­cle mode, the car can go up to speeds of 130kph, which is very much faster than non- plug- in hy­brids.

Fast and fru­gal Even with a low fuel con­sump­tion of 2.1 litres per 100km, the C 350 e is sports car- like fast with a 0- 100kph ac­cel­er­a­tion of 5.9 sec­onds and a top speed of 250kph.
