Mercedes-Benz has launched the local production version of the C 300 e PHEV (Plugin Electric Hybrid Vehicle) priced from Bt2.699 million to Bt3.215 million, the company said in a press release on Friday.
They are equipped with a new 13.5 kWh Li-ion battery with 111 per cent increase in capacity compared to the previous battery generation. It takes one hour and 50 minutes to recharge from 10 per cent of battery capacity to full via a Mercedes wall box charger.
Mercedes-Benz (Thailand) Ltd president Roland Folger said by 2030, half of Mercedes global car sales will be made up of PHEVs and BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles).
He said: “This year, we will continue crystallising and integrating concepts of advanced mobility and eco-friendly lifestyles into our products and services.
“In terms of products, we want to reiterate our reputation as a pathfinder in electric vehicle innovations as we continue to offer our customers performance and luxury from Mercedes-Benz, while at the same time, significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions per vehicle.”
