The petrol engine works in sync with a 90 kW (122 hp) electric motor to give a system output of 235 kW (320 hp) at 4,500 – 5,500 rpm, as well as a peak torque of 700 Nm. It emits lower than 45 g of carbon dioxide based on a combined driving calculation.

 

The C 300 e accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds, with a top speed of 250 km/h. The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission system ensures an economical energy consumption rate at every move and delivers extra torque when the gear is quickly shifted down upon vehicle overtaking.

 

The C 300 e uses a new 13.5 kWh Li-ion battery with 111% increase in capacity compared to its previous battery generation. This is achieved through a new lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt (Li NMC) battery cell composition. It takes 1 hour 50 minutes to recharge from 10% of battery capacity to 100% if the battery is charged at maximum recharge power by Mercedes-Benz Wallbox charger.

 

The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission system is standard as this latest transmission system ensures an economical energy consumption rate at every move and effectively reduces leaked noise into the cabin.
