2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class to be sold as hybrid for the first time

Hot on the heels of the just released new generation C-Class (the fourth with this name), we also found out that among the drive trains that would become available is a new hybrid one, bringing the C in line with the S and E counterparts.

As in the S and E-Class, Mercedes-Benz will additionally be offering a diesel engine combined with a hybrid module. The model will bear the moniker C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID and will be equipped with a four-cylinder diesel engine and a compact electric motor. The duo generates an output of 150 + 20 kW (204 + 27 hp) and runs on only 3.9 liters of diesel per 100 km in NEDC combined mode (provisional figure).

Later on, without revealing though any details, Mercedes-Benz also promises to unveil an enhancement of the hybrid model that would feature – just like the S-Class flagship – plug-in technology, but this time the electric motor would be coupled to a petrol engine.

Besides the future hybrid installments, the new W205 generation will also be equipped with the standard range of powertrains: at market launch early in 2014 we could get home the C220 diesel or the C180 and C200 petrol. Next up will be a new small diesel engine with a displacement of 1.6 liters, which generates 115 or 136 hp and delivers 280 or 320 Nm of torque. The diesel range would then span from 115 to 204 hp.

Also, in the petrol range, five four-cylinder units rated at 156 to 238 hp will also be available. These will include the special C 180 ECO Edition model, which qualifies for efficiency class A as the BlueEFFICIENCY Edition. A six-cylinder petrol engine rated at 245 kW (333 hp) will follow in due course, to satisfy the dynamic enthusiasts.
