Mercedes E 300 DE: 1.6 liters of consumption – really? Model should save the diesel – electric car

Mercedes E 300 DE in the test: In order to reduce consumption and CO2 emissions and avoid long-term driving bans, Daimler from the E-Class makes a plug-in hybrid. But how much does it really save? Site and site make the practical test.

The diesel is on the siding. He is not only less CO2 than a petrol engine, but also enormously long-distance. Daimler is now trying to stretch the diesel for the electrical turnaround in the form of a diesel plug-in hybrid.In the Mercedes E 300 DE, an electric motor and a four-cylinder turbodiesel engine share the drive work. On the one hand, this has advantages in pollutant emissions-thanks to the e-module, the car can supplement the phases in which diesel exhaust gas aftertreatment does not work optimally-for example in the heating phase of the catalyst in city traffic. Of course, it also has advantages in consumption and thus with CO2 emissions.

Mercedes E-Class as a plug-in hybrid

There is also a financial advantage. The tax reduction for electric cars in company car taxation also applies to plug-in hybrid vehicles such as the Mercedes E300 de. In addition, there is the state purchase bonus (3000 euros). The dieselectric Benz drives up to 54 kilometers electrically, then it continues with diesel. Together, the electrical and electric engine make a system output of 306 hp possible. The system torque is a whopping 700 Newton meters.

Mercedes E 300 DE: 1.6 liters of consumption - really? Model should save the diesel - electric car-consumption
Cattle man Load indicator in the Hybrid Mercedes E 300 DE: At a normal Schuko socket, only with little power can be loaded, then the load needs more than four hours

In 5.7 seconds from 0 to 100, 700 Newton meters of torque

This means that the hybrid speed reaches 100 in less than six seconds. Mercedes specifies the average consumption with 1.6 l/100 km. In a two -week practical test we achieved the following values:

  • If the battery is fully charged, the total consumption is 3.8 liters on the first 100 kilometers.
  • For the entire period in which the battery was not invited every day, it was 4.4 liters; at least still very economical in this vehicle class, even for a diesel.
  • If the battery supply is exhausted, you do not charge and only continue with a diesel engine – which will be the normal case for long distances due to the long loading times (4-5 hours) – are permanently feasible per 100 km.
  • In practice, however, the pure e-range is a bit disappointing, it is only 35 to 40 kilometers.

There is enough space in the interior of the E-Class, but the battery on the trunk demands its toll, because the luggage compartment shrinks by 170 liters to 370 liters. The E-Class 300 DE costs 55.638 euros, and you can also apply for the state funding bonus (for plug-in hybrids 3000 euros).

  1. Guys, you understand that wrong,
    1.6 liters is the minor consumption compared to a comparable model without hybrid technology. … Then it fits too !

  2. There is a lot of envy here!
    I, workers, make me a fine combination. A 350d. still. The next one will be one with one "E" in name. And yes, it also runs 250. And I drive it even when the route is free. Otherwise I just swim between the other stinkers in traffic. Comfortable. The car does even a little more than half after only one year, if it was in business operation. 41 instead of 80 thousand. Whoever subsidizes that doesn’t matter to me. So now you can bash me… @ MR Viehmann: A hybrid can also load the battery in normal driving mode. Then you use the slightly lower charging coatality for starting and acceleration support.

  3. Everything done right.
    The actual saving advantage lies in the fact that we are released in the battery with the green red light shaft, especially in city traffic.

  4. 1.6 liters are of course nonsense
    I drive a plugin. 3.6 liters in the third mix, 4.5 liters on pure motorway ride (130). Petrol engine. The purely electrical driving style on short distance is very pleasant. The plugin lie from the empty battery and then only the combustion engine is nonsense. The system does not allow this state. A plugin is also a hybrid! Both engines always work in the duo. Only why the diesel should be saved is not clear to me. Diesel are large, heavy, loud, a lot of vibration, expensive in production and maintenance. And drag a lot of exhaust gas cleaning ghosts around with you. I find the modern petrol engine much better in the car sector. As a economical hybrid anyway. No diesel can keep up there. After many years with a diesel I can only say: I no longer need diesel.

  5. To trick car
    The car actually only serves to use tax loopholes. Otherwise, this car has no sensible authorization. The real fuel consumption is too high due to the short range and the outdated plug-in hybrid concept. Many manufacturers are already returning because the advantage can also be realized with a pre -viewing driving style and lighter car. The costs are then less. The German carmakers are massively hanging after the drive. I stick to models from the Far East without fraud cellars like in Germany. There you can already get the follow -up technology and get full equipment in the SUV where you can get the basic equipment here. Car is a means of transportation and not a status symbol.

  6. That’s correct
    not. By burning one liter of diesel, more CO2 is created than by burning one liter of gasoline. So better inform site before you write something like that.

  7. @Alex Pott: misleading statement and therefore wrong!
    The liter incineration comparison lags tremendously. Diesel has a somewhat more higher energy density as a gasoline, but is burned in motors, the strength and performance in the speed cellar are burned and their gearboxes are examined with a correspondingly long leverage effect. With the same displacement, weight and driving conditions, the diesel progresses considerably. The CO2 balance sheet: not to top otherwise

  8. My E 350E needs between 6 and 7 liters
    When I’m on long distances. This is moderate because I’m not a racer either. However, the (petrol) model is already 2.5 years old and the electrical range with approx. 25 kilometers very limited. However, it is usually sufficient for short shopping trips. I have the power closure directly at the storage space and everything is connected within 20 seconds. I would buy such a vehicle again- almost 300 hp overall performance, (almost) everything is fine.

  9. Mercedes does not need to save the diesel
    That will do the blackout. Because as soon as we have survived the first and long overdue, Europe-wide blackout, at least those who have survived will not want to know anything about e-mobility for a very long time and chase everyone from the farm who even takes this word in their mouth. Incidentally, there will be no longer any green voters, because everyone will try to deny that they have a joint responsibility for this devastating event with their carelessly given voice. But the internet forgets nothing and no one, as we learned from Steve Jobs. And that’s just as well.

  10. 1.6 liters?
    1.6 liters of consumption? Who believes it…The calculator was again trying to make the values beautiful on the executive floors.

  11. Good concept
    It shows the potential in the diesel engine. The nitrogen discussion is done and if you know your way around, the CO2 knows hardly any topic in diesel. The German electricity mix in the battery produces a significantly higher CO2 share. Finally city -compatible vehicles with a high range! The German automotive industry still has sustainable concepts in the quiver!

  12. 1.6 liters of consumption
    So this consumption value dreamed by Mercedes is clearly undercut by Tesla in real operation. They offer free charging when buying a Model S. That means 0 consumption for the customer. That should imitate a German premium company.

    One request, check your comments before posting here so as not to be a fairy tale counter! I quote car newspaper 04.01.22 Free loading on Teslas Superchargers is reserved in Germany in Germany and the Model X. Vehicles that before the 15th. January 2017 has been ordered without any additional costs without any free loading free of charge. understood? Over for 5 years!
