Mercedes has announced two new plug-in options—and one of them runs partially on diesel. The automaker will launch the E300e and E300de in the near future, with the E300e utilizing a gasoline ICE in combination with a plug-in powertrain. The E300de, however, will combine a diesel engine with the plug-in system.
The two Mercedes PHEVs will utilize a 90kW electric motor and 13.5 kWh battery, providing fifty kilometers (31 miles) of all electric range for the E300e and fifty-four kilometers (33.5 miles) of range for the E300de. Read more.
