GLE and GLC at IAA

Mercedes extends the family of its plug-in hybrids to the off-road vehicles GLE and GLC. As the manufacturer informs, the GLE 350 de and the GLC 300 e will be on display at the IAA in Frankfurt (11 to 21 September). In the dealership they will roll in the next few months.

The GLE uses a 31.2-kilowatt-hour (kWh) capacity battery that provides an electric range of more than 100 kilometers. Together with the 100 kW / 136 hp electric motor, speeds of up to 160 km / h are possible according to the manufacturer.

Power auxiliary engine gives SUV better pollutant balance

The electric drive for the short-haul is completed by a particularly efficient diesel with 143 kW / 194 hp. Despite a system output of 235 kW / 320 hp and a top speed of 210 km / h, the two-tonner therefore comes to a standard consumption of 1.1 liters and a CO2 emissions of 29 g / km, the manufacturer continues.

In the GLC Mercedes, however, is on a more conventional combination: There, the Schwaben put together a 155 kW / 211 hp petrol engine with a 90 kW / 122 hp Stromer and a battery of 13.5 kWh together.

That goes according to Mercedes in the E-mode for up to 49 kilometers and more than 130 km / h. Working both engines in the team, the system performance is also 235 kW / 320 hp, the top speed is then 230 km / h and as a standard consumption Mercedes gives 2.2 liters and a CO2 emissions of 51 g / km.
