The car that was shown during the start of the current year, comes incorporated with a V6 gasoline engine that returns 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) of torque. The 20 kW electric motor chips in with an extra 184 lb-ft (250 Nm).
The E400 Hybrid which will sell in the US only as a sedan, unlike the E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid sibling that arrived in a wagon from too, will do city rides returning 24 mpg and 31 mpg on the highway. On a combined cycle, it would give you 27 mpg.
The car is capable of sprinting from 0-60 mph in just 6.7 seconds and can reach a top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h).
Going by al these the car looks like it is being offered cheaper than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5, which comes for $61,845 and the Lexus GS 450h that sells for $58,950.
