New details on the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C350 Plug-in Hybrid have been recently released, ahead of its sale date which will kick off in early 2015.

The British automotive media has managed to obtain some more interesting details on the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C350 Plug-in Hybrid. The “green” version of the new C-Class generation will come with the same design as the regular model, except for the rear charging port which has been built into the rear bumper, or the active grille shutter, which will improve the aerodynamics of the car when the engine cooling will not be necessary.

Our source is also stating that the new Mercedes-Benz C350 Plug-in Hybrid will be taking its power from a 2.0 liter turbocharged gasoline burner, rated at 208 HP (155 kW). This will be backed up by an electric motor, built into the 7-speed automatic transmission, which will be generating an extra 80 HP (60 kW). The all-electric range of the car will stand at approximately 32 km (20 miles) and this should be more efficient than the S550 Plug-in Hybrid, which is capable of burning 2.8L / 100km of fuel (100.9 mpg UK / 84 mpg US) and it is emitting just 65 g/km of CO2. The Mercedes-Benz C350 Plug-in Hybrid will be revealed close to the end of this year.
