Video: Mercedes-Benz C350e (W205) PHEV Explained In Detail


The standard bearer of the Mercedes-Benz (W205) C-Class range, the C350e plug-in hybrid, is scheduled to hit showrooms in very short order – ahead of the much anticipated local introduction, here’s an in-house Mercedes-Benz production about the many thingamajigs that give the car its great appeal.
