Mercedes introduce the new C Class in the form of a hybrid
Electronic vehicles and hybrids have certainly taken the world by storm over the course of the recent few years. We have seen many big manufacturers put some top selling electronic vehicles on sale such as the Leaf from Nissan amongst many more. Without a doubt in our minds, we certainly believe that the EV market will continue to grow over the course of the upcoming years. With such a big selling sector of the car industry comes a big selling manufacturer to join it. That's right, the German manufacturer Mercedes have officially introduced a hybrid vehicle of their own onto the global car market and what better way to make an impact than with this new hybrid coming in the form of a C Class variant.
How will the C Class hybrid effect the EV market ?
Well the C Class was originally introduced back in 1993 and has since then proven to be one of the flagship vehicles made available around the world. It has gained a big following around the world and now with the addition of the hybrid version of the car, we see it gaining even more popularity into the future.
Well if we open up the bonnet and take a look inside, we see that Mercedes have included a 2.1 litre,turbo diesel which joins alongside an electric motor. Between the engine and motor, we see the C Class hybrid produce a grand total of 228 brake horse power. This rear wheel drive variant also comes fully fitted with a seven speed,automatic transmission system which helps the vehicle to reach the 62 miles per hour area from the get go in a time of 6.7 seconds then going onto overall top speeds of 150 miles per hour.
The optional air suspension system also comes along with the C Class hybrid model but it will cost you an added £895 on top of the standard purchase price.
