Launched in the 2016 model year, the Mercedes-Benz C350e is the first PHEV offered in the C-Class lineup. Receiving 208 horsepower from its 4-cylinder engine and 80 horsepower from its electric motor, the hybrid version of Mercedes' most popular sedan cranks up 443 lb-ft of total system torque, boasts 20 pure electric miles, hits 60 mph in 5.9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 130 mph. Combined fuel economy is approximately 112 mpg.

Car And Driver calls it “A green machine with real-car credentials.” The transmission is Benz’s proven 7-speed automatic. But instead of a torque converter, the luxury sedan’s gearbox uses the electric motor bolted up to a wet clutch, offering torque-converter smoothness and directly coupled efficiency.

Four drive modes (Eco, Comfort, Sport, and Sport+) mate with a quartet of electricity-management selections (Hybrid, E-mode, E-save, and Charge), adapting for specific road conditions – hillside climbing, congestion-zone cruising and long road trips. The sporty interior offers optional Heads-Up Display via COMAND® interface and a touchpad for the central display unit. Pre-Entry Climate Control allows the interior conditions to be remotely prepared via the Internet. Standard safety features include COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST®, which provides collision protection at speeds above 5 mph, Autonomous Braking at speeds up to 65 mph and ATTENTION ASSIST® that warns you when it detects fatigue or inattentiveness.

C350e comes with a sophisticated, Internet-compatible multimedia system with mbrace® and apps, hands-free Bluetooth® interface, hands-free phone usage, and audio streaming with cable-free playback. A smart gas pedal lets your foot know when you are about to engage the gasoline engine, and the ECO Assist™ function pulses two times to signal decoupling of the gas engine for all-electric operation. Elegant design and blue-chip materials create a posh, comfortable, supportive interior cabin. The intelligent engine management system of the C350e works in the background to select the ideal combination between the combustion engine and the electric motor.

MSRP for the base model starts around $46,050.
