Mercedes Benz is considered one of the most famous brands in the automobile world. Its line of cars and high-end vehicles have a high position in the market. And now, with new technologies, their cars are more and more sophisticated. Today we are going to talk about one of its best-selling models, the A-Class.
This car is a hybrid, which was redesigned for the market in Europe. What is the most fantastic thing this car has to offer? Your mobility system is now backed by electric power. It represents a hybrid that can be plugged in, following the steps of its older brother, the B-Class.
Within A-Class, we are talking specifically about the A250e model. In addition to electricity, it also operates with a 1.3-liter gasoline engine. These liters are distributed in its four cylinders, which provide their eight-speed double clutch transmission service.
The power of the hybrid car
The Mercedes A-Class has an electric propeller. On this car it must be said that Mercedes also sells the sedan version and the Hatchback version. They are two very competent car models. That demonstrate all the technological and automotive power of the company.
Thanks to its characteristics, this vehicle can reach a power of 217 horsepower. Keep in mind that the sedan version of this car can reach a speed of 100 kilometers per hour in just 6.7 seconds. With a maximum top speed of 240 kilometers per hour.
The Class A Hatchback version has a greater acceleration, from 0 to 100 in just 6.6 seconds. However, the maximum speed is 235 kilometers per hour.
Performance in its electric mode
Do not forget that in relation to the fuel tank, it is located in the middle of the rear wheels. This allows you to have more space. The electrical part is also optimized to function as a starter motor.
Regarding the performance of the electric range, there are talks about a coverage of about 64 kilometers. That was what could be verified during his trial period in the European version. It is suspected that analyzes by the US Environmental Protection Agency may reveal a lower figure.
In electric mode, the A-Class reaches a very limited speed. It barely achieves 140 kilometers per hour. The interesting thing is that this car has a navigation system that allows you to study when you can use electric power. This gives a more reasonable use.
A new era for Mercedes
To recharge this hybrid car it will be necessary to invest 105 minutes, as long as there is talk of an AC charging station at 7.4 kilowatts of level 2. If you have the option of fast charging, you can reach 80% charge in a 25 minute period.
In the future, Mercedes Benz expects to have 20 plug-in hybrid car models. At the moment it is studied to have available the sedans of S-Class, E-Class and C-Class. Mercedes is definitely entering a new era in the electric car market.
