Mercedes C300 Bluetec Hybrid: price and specs


ThereMercedes C300 Bluetec Hybridit is a 5-seater sedan that uses propulsionhybridto give more grit to the engine without penalizing consumption.

Mercedes C300 Hybrid - Consumption and engine

The engine is a 2,143 cm3 turbodiesel that delivers 150 kW (204 hp) of power, paired with a 20 kW (27 hp) three-phase electric motor. The declared consumption amounts to an autonomy of 27.8 km with only one liter but the road test of Four wheels reveals lower actual consumption: 17.2 km traveled with a liter. As is clear from consumption, in this circumstance the German manufacturer has exploited the hybrid propulsion not to decrease consumption but to increase power.

There Mercedes C300 hybrid has the same consumption of the C class with the simple four-cylinder diesel, the difference lies precisely in the power because while the C220 class has a 170 horsepower turbodiesel engine, the Hybrid C300 it has 61 more horsepower delivered partly by the turbodiesel and partly by the small electric engine, and the additional 250 Nm of torque from the electric motor are also felt.

Despite the overall power and performance that 231 horsepower can deliver, the Mercedes C300 hybrid sees a possession tax (car tax) of around 385 euros and the same consumption as a less brilliant sedan.
