Our Mercedes-EQ range explained.
Explore the different types of electric and hybrid cars we offer to find the one that suits you best.
Mercedes-Benz plug-in hybrid cars.
Plug-in hybrid cars, also known as PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles), are a cross between a combustion engine and an electric battery. This means you have the option to drive fully electric on shorter trips in to the city, or use the petrol or diesel engine for longer journeys.
Mercedes-Benz mild hybrid drive cars.
Mild hybrid drive refers to our Mercedes-EQ mild hybrid drive range of cars. Unlike a plug-in hybrid, the Mild hybrid drive system uses the electric motor and combustion engine in parallel. This means that the electric motor doesn’t operate independently from the combustion engine, but supports it by smoothing the torque curve, creating efficiency and adding more power when needed.
