Introducing the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Plug-in Hybrid
EQ Power features in both the immensely popular A-Class Hatchback and the super stylish Saloon resulting in plug-in hybrid vehicles that deliver maximum efficiency and even emission-free driving, when in all-electric mode.
Not only can you save money on fuel and avoid city congestion charges, when in all-electric mode, you also will be able to spend less time at fuel stations; a benefit that is sure to please the majority of drivers.
Badged A 250 e, both the Hatchback and Saloon are available with the choice of four specification models; all featuring AMG bodystyling, privacy glass and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Range and Performance
Compared to rivals, the A 250 e has an exceptional all-electric range of up to 44 miles. Whilst driving in all-electric mode, drivers can enjoy emission-free driving; making the A Class Plug-in Hybrid fantastic for city driving.
Delivering up to 256.8mpg (combined WLTP), the A 250 e Hatchback and Saloon are super efficient and only emit 25g/km of CO2 emissions.
Powered by a combination of a four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor, the A 250 e has a total power output of 215bhp.
Each of the PHEV model lines features an 8G-DCT automatic transmission as standard.
Depleted batteries mean that all-electric mode in the A 250 e is no longer an option until the vehicle is plugged-in and re-charged. Fortunately, being a plug-in hybrid vehicle means the combustion engine will take the lead and enable you to continue on your journeys.
There is more than one option when it comes to re-charging the A-Class PHEV models. If you prefer to charge at home, you can charge the battery to full capacity from 10 percent charge in 5.5 hours, using a domestic plug socket. Installing a dedicated BP Chargemaster wall box, will decrease the charge time to between two and three hours.
In the UK there are many public charging stations, which enable vehicle charging whilst out and about. These charge points are also convenient if you don't have charging facilities at home or work.

It is clear to see why the A-Class is a popular choice and now there is a plug-in hybrid option to appeal to the environmentally-conscious drivers.
