In an effort to counter BMW's growing plug-in hybrid fleet, Mercedes has launched three new plug-in, petrol-electric hybrids to the Australian market. The Mercedes C350e sedan (and Estate wagon variant), the GLE500e SUV, and S500e limousine can all have their internal lithium-ion batteries charged from a 240-volt wall plug and have enough range for regular everyday city driving on electric power alone. A future E-class hybrid, too, will be "the most intelligent sedan in its class".
