MERCEDESBENZ C-CLASS C350 E
PRICE: From £36,980 The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has long been one of the best small executive saloons you can buy, so a fleet-friendly low-emission hybrid is a compelling prospect for potential buyers.
There are a couple of options – the C300 h uses a 2.0-litre diesel engine and electric motor combination, but it’s not a plug-in, so recharging only comes through regeneration.
The C350 e uses a 2.0-litre petrol engine and electric motor and as its plug-in emissions are lower it qualifies for a government grant.
