According tomedia reports, Mercedes announced the addition of three new plug-in hybrids (PHEvs) to its EQ Power Series: CLA 250 e Coupe, CLA 250 e Shooting Brake and GLA 250 e. All three are equipped with third-generation hybrid drive systems, further refinement of the Mercedes EQ Power family.
The three cars have an electric range of 71-79 km, sharing the same performance data in many ways: 75 kW of power output, 160 kW of system output, torque peak 450 Nm, ac charging system with up to 7.4Kw and a DC charging system up to 24kW.
The Mercedes-designed PHEV minimizes the battery’s impact on the load compartment. All three cars have a landscape-mounted engine. The hybrid traction head is designed for an 8G-DCT dual clutch drive. In addition, Mercedes uses a permanently stimulated synchronous motor as an internal rotor and a low-loss wet clutch.
In addition, the total system output of the three vehicles up to 160kW, 15.6 kW lithium-ion battery pack wall charging time is only 1 hour and 45 minutes, if the DC charging station only takes 25 minutes from 10% of the power charge to 80%. The 100 km acceleration time is between 6.6-6.9 seconds, the maximum speed is 140 mph, and the combined fuel consumption is between 1.4-1.6l/100km. The three new cars will be available in a few weeks’ time and will start out this spring at a price of 36,943 euros.
