Mercedes will introduce hybrid CLA 250e, CLA 250e Shooting Brake and GLA 250eMarch 3, 2020
According to Mercedes, they will operate on electricity in 90% of cases.
The new Mercedes-Benz CLA 250e, CLA 250e Shooting Brake and GLA 250e expand the transmission capabilities of models by adding a hybrid powerplant with a plug-in module to the lineup. These cars will be available in Europe this spring.
All models are driven by a 1.3-liter internal combustion engine and an electric motor with a total system capacity of 215 horsepower and 450 Newton meters of torque. A couple of the power plant is an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The battery of the hybrid system has a capacity of 15.6 kilowatt hours.
The new Mercedes CLA 250e, according to WLTP estimates, has a range of 60 to 69 kilometers. In the back of the Shooting Brake, the model must overcome 58–68 km on electric traction, and the GLA 250e – from 53 to 61 km. The layout of the PHEV system includes redirecting exhaust gases and changing the location of the fuel to free up the space needed to install the battery.
All new models use the Mercedes Route Management System, which evaluates navigation data and speed limits by changing the drive mode to maximize the use of hybrid technology. Drivers can also force the system to go into driving mode, in which priority is given to electric power, if a person does not press the gas pedal so that the computer decides that an internal combustion engine is necessary. The automaker estimates that 90 percent of daily driving can only be done using electricity.
