GLA, CLA Coupé and Shooting Brake models get EQ power


The Mercedes-Benz plug-in hybrid portfolio has new additions with the GLA 250 e, CLA 250 e Coupé and CLA 250 e Shooting Brake models. For the first time on a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, the combustion engine is started by an electric motor; these hybrids do not have a separate 12-volt starter.

The hybrid system is a combination of a 1.33-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine, the ‘EQ Power’ electric motor, and an 8-speed DCT. The ICE puts out 118 kW (160 hp) at 5,500 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 1,620 rpm. The electric motor offers 75 kW (102 hp) and 300 Nm of torque. The total system output and system torque, however, is 160 kW (218 hp) and 450 Nm, respectively.


All three models have a 15.6 kWh lithium-ion battery pack weighing ~150 kg. The GLA 250 e has a claimed all-electric range of 64-71 km as per NEDC and 53-61 km as per WLTP.


The CLA 250 e Coupé is claimed to get an all-electric range of 72-79 km as per NEDC and 60-69 km as per WLTP.


The CLA 250 e Shooting Brake’s all-electric range is claimed to be 69-76 km as per NEDC and 58-68 km as per WLTP.

All three models have an all-electric top speed of 140 km/h. As for charging, the battery pack can be charged with AC or DC. With a 7.4 kW AC wallbox, a 10-100% SoC (State of Charge) can be achieved in 1 h 45 min. With 24 kW DC charging, the battery can be charged from 10-80% SoC in around 25 minutes, the company said.

The water-cooled battery packs are supplied by Daimler subsidiary Deutsche Accumotive.

    Not sure why the NEDC results are even used as book of fiction results. Even WLTP gives bad results. EPA results would be better but none sold with hybrid engine in the US. You can presume at the most optimistic, the lowest EV range.
