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.

The tech-laden C350e combines a host of new convenience features, such as the cabin-climate pre-conditioning function, Thermotronic three-zone climate control and 360-degree camera view. The C350e is also the first C-Class sold locally to be supplied with the firm’s ‘Airmatic’ active-suspension system.

The C350e offers four drive modes which augment the performance characteristics of the turbocharged four-cylinder engine and electric motor combo that delivers a total system output 279bhp and 600Nm of torque.

We were treated to a special preview of the locally assembled (CKD) car recently, which will go on sale at an estimated RM299,000, replacing the current top-of-the-line C300 AMG Line - currently priced at RM307,888.
