You did read it right. It wasn't a typo.
There IS such a thing as a premium executive DIESEL plug-in hybrid. This marvellous machine can be found in the form of the Mercedes E300de Saloon.
With prices starting at £49,230 OTR, the Mercedes Benz E Class Diesel Saloon E300de AMG Line 9G-Tronic Auto - currently on offer from AVC - is more expensive than by quite a way than its main rival, the petrol-electric BMW 530e.
Luckily, All Vehicle Contracts are delighted to be offering an exclusive contract hire and leasing deal that makes driving one of these luxury vehicles a reality. With monthly lease prices on the Mercedes E300de AMG Line Salon starting from £449.91 + VAT per month, this is a deal not to be missed!
But just how good is the Mercedes Benz E Class Diesel Saloon E300de AMG Line 9G-Tronic Auto and what could it offer you?
Let's take a look.
Mercedes Benz E Class Diesel Saloon E300de AMG Line 9G-Tronic Auto review
Proving that Mercedes, at least, don't feel diesel is a dead motor engine fuel, this vehicle marries the marque's smooth 194bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine with a 122bhp electric motor and 13.5kWh battery to give us a diesel hybrid that boasts - in brief - the following:
- 166.2mpg (making the 300de the most economical E-Class by a long stretch)
- 0-62mph in 5.9 seconds with a limited top speed of 155mph
- 41g/km CO2 emissions rating
- Electric-only range of 34 miles
- Significant BIK (benefit in kind) tax benefits for PHEV as a company car
The main differences from the conventionally-powered E-Class AMG-Line models are under-the-bonnet. This is a discreet vehicle that conforms to the usual E-Class design language. It also has all the standard, high-tech standard equipment that is found in in its standard diesel-engine sibling.
