The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is currently testing out a new version of the C-Class, the Plug-In Hybrid, as the model in question has been caught on camera by our spy photographers.
After showing you the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate just minutes ago, time has come to present another version of the model, the C-Class Plug-In Hybrid. The vehicle has been seen wearing some light camouflage on its front fascia and rear end, wearing a sticker that says “hybrid” on it and coming with several particularities which help it differentiate from the regular versions of the model.
The new C-Class Plug-In hybrid will get a diesel engine combined with an electric motor. The internal combustion unit will produce 204 HP and 27 HP will come from the electric motor. Rumors are saying that the average fuel consumption will stand at 3.9 liters every 100 km, in the NEDC combined mode, but chances are this figure will slightly modify once the model will be in its final version. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Plug-In Hybrid will be officially unveiled later on this year, probably in Paris, in October. Additional details on it remain unknown for the moment.
