Introducing the Mercedes-Benz GLE Plug-in Hybrid
Immense is a fantastic word to describe the Mercedes-Benz GLE Plug-in Hybrid; immense power, immense space and immense all-electric range.
Just like the conventionally powered GLE, the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model offers either five or seven seats, luxurious comfort and striking exterior looks. It further adds the ability to drive in pure electric mode for up to 66 miles, whilst producing zero tailpipe emissions.
Although efficiency has been enhanced, power certainly has not been compromised in this large family SUV, with the driving experience being equally as impressive in this plug-in hybrid model.
Range and Performance
Take the powerful 2.0-litre diesel engine, found in the GLE 300 d 4MATIC, and combine it with an electric motor to get the efficient, yet powerful, GLE 350 de 4MATIC Plug-in Hybrid.
Producing a colossal 395bhp, whilst returning up to a seriously impressive 403mpg, the GLE Plug-in Hybrid is a remarkable vehicle offering a truly fantastic driving experience that happens to also be kinder to the environment.
Impressive figures do not stop there as the GLE PHEV model boasts a very generous all-electric range of up to 66 miles on a single charge, that is one of the highest you will find across plug-in hybrid cars.
Considering the exceptional all-electric range in the GLE PHEV, the majority of drivers will not need to charge the vehicle that often. However, eventually the vehicle will inevitably require recharging.
Multiple charging options are available with the GLE PHEV model, with some methods being more convenient than others. If you have off-road parking at home or at work, the GLE 350 de 4MATIC can be recharged using a domestic plug socket, which will take 11.5 hours to charge from 10 percent to full capacity.
Installing and utilising a dedicated wall box will dramatically reduce charging time to just over three hours to reach an entire charge from 10 percent.
Alternatively, there are thousands of public charging stations located around the UK to use whilst out and about or if you do not have access to off-road parking.
Test drive the Mercedes-Benz GLE Plug-in Hybrid
A luxurious family SUV with endless potential, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Plug-in Hybrid is a tremendous vehicle formed on a perfect concoction of power and efficiency.
Whether completing short journeys in all-electric mode or tackling longer treks utilising a combination of the diesel engine and the electric motor; the GLE 350 de 4MATIC ensures a pleasant and enjoyable drive.
