Plug-in charging
Basically, a plug-in hybrid can be charged at any household power socket. A much quicker alternative, however, is the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox.

This will bring your vehicle back to full charge as quickly as possible. If you are not at home, public charging stations are also an option for "filling up" your vehicle with power.

Lithium-ion high-voltage battery
A lithium-ion high-voltage battery, which can be charged from an external electric power source, is used for storing the electric power.

This type of battery combines high power density with high durability while taking up relatively little space. It is charged via a charging socket in the side wall or in the rear bumper of the vehicle.

Drives including electric motors.

The electric motor can be used either as a motor or as a generator. When operating as a motor it serves as the drive; while in overrun mode and when braking, the electric power is recovered and used to charge the lithium-ion battery.

The electric motor is able to make its maximum torque available as soon as the vehicle moves off, which makes for particularly powerful acceleration from a standstill. The highly efficient torque converter means that start-up comfort is just as good in hybrid operation.

Recuperative brake system
Recuperation is about converting kinetic energy into electric power in order to recover some of the braking energy in overrun mode.  

This energy can be stored in the lithium-ion battery for later use by the electric motor for drive power and auxiliary uses in the vehicle (e.g. the climate control system).

Internal combustion engine
Depending on the model, high performance spark-ignition or diesel engines are combined with hybrid modules and batteries with different performance ratings.

When required, the output of the combustion engine is supported by the electric motor – for an extra boost when accelerating. The result is a performance that combines driving pleasure and comfort with reduced consumption and lower local emissions.

    Maximum flexibility with electric motor and combustion engine.

    The image shows the Mercedes-Benz GLA from the front.

    The strength of the EQ Power models is their versatility. They combine virtually silent, locally emission-free electric driving in towns with the flexibility and independence of the combustion engine on long journeys.

    Locally emission-free driving.

    The image shows the Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupé at an angle from above.

    Plug-in hybrids are an important milestone on the road to emission-free driving. Mercedes-Benz is consistently continuing to develop its EQ Power models for greater electric ranges, so as to create persuasive products in all segments with locally emission-free driving over daily distances.

    Intelligent operating strategy with recuperation.

    The image shows a diagonal view of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class from the rear.

    The intelligent, route-based operating strategy activates electric driving mode for the appropriate sections of the journey. It takes into consideration navigation data, topography, speed limits and traffic conditions for the whole route. The ECO Assistant helps the driver save fuel.

    Reduced consumption through targeted charging.

    The image shows the Mercedes-Benz S-Class from the side.

    The electric ranges of the new Mercedes‑Benz plug-in hybrid models make it possible for driving in town to be mainly in electric mode, thus reducing consumption levels. The more often you charge your vehicle and consciously use the intelligent operating strategy with recuperation, the greater your electric driving advantage and the more you reduce your consumption.

    Plug-in hybrid diesel.

    The image shows a close-up of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 de model badge.

    The latest diesel technology combined with the latest new generation hybrid drive. Locally emission-free mobility becomes an emotive experience, hand-in-hand with greater efficiency, exceptional driving comfort and the impressive range of the diesel engine. And the onboard charger doubles the charging capacity.

    Comfortable driving dynamics


    The time is ripe for new experiences: emotion and intelligence.

    The time is ripe for new experiences: emotion and intelligence.

      Dynamic driving experience.

      The image shows a diagonal view of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class from the front.

      Experience the electric driving experience with immediate response and maximum torque from the first rev. You’ll get used to this new dynamic right away and you’ll never be able to manage without it again. Not, at any rate, once you have felt the power of the two hearts accelerating together.

      Familiar reliability.

      The image shows a diagonal view of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class from the front.

      EQ Power uses our plug-in-hybrids to combine the best of the two worlds of the combustion engine and the electric drive system. Through the intelligent interplay of the technical components, in conjunction with the safety which is typical of Mercedes-Benz, all of our vehicles are living up to our claim:

      silent electric driving.

      The image shows a diagonal view of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Saloon from the rear.

      Enjoy the new driving experience with spontaneous, powerful acceleration and near-silent driving Start your day in a relaxed frame of mind, with just the electric drive and no engine noise.

      Pre-entry climate control as standard, managed via an app.

      The image shows a visualisation of the pre-entry climate control using an app.

      Enjoy your feel-good climate when you enter the vehicle. Simply set the time and temperature for in-car ventilation, and even for the seats where available – either via Mercedes me or the head unit. If you charge them simultaneously, the battery power is retained until you start your journey.

      Fewer braking interventions because of intelligent recuperation.

      The image shows the energy flow on the media display in the Mercedes-Benz GLE.

      With each braking action you gain some electric range. In deceleration or braking mode the kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy and used to charge the battery (recuperation). By reinforcing recuperation, the intelligent operating strategy supports the delay in traffic situations requiring braking.

      Many routes to power – charging options

        Overview of charging options.

        The image shows a diagonal view of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class from the front.

        Plug-in hybrids can be charged at any household socket. A faster alternative, however, is the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox. This will bring your vehicle back to full charge as quickly as possible. There are public charging stations en route where you can “fill up” with electricity.

        Electric and conventional range.

        The image shows the digital instrument cluster in the Mercedes-Benz GLE.

        The intelligent route-based operating strategy achieves the optimum combination of the electric and conventional ranges. Depending on the driving situation, it selects either electric or conventional drive in order to achieve the greatest efficiency. It takes into consideration navigation and traffic data, as well as speed limits for the whole route.

        What impacts the range?

        The image shows the Mercedes-Benz C-Class from the side.

        The electric range until the combustion engine kicks in varies depending on driving behaviour, route profile and environmental factors. There is also anticipatory driving with Eco Score display, radar-based recuperation and sail function. Auxiliary equipment (e.g. climate control system) also has an impact on the range.

        Charging with Wallbox and Mercedes me Charge.

        The image shows the Mercedes-Benz Wallbox Home.

        The Mercedes-Benz Wallbox Home is a charging station that allows fast, safe and convenient charging at home. And Mercedes me Charge gives you access en route throughout Europe to an extensive network of public charging stations located at shopping centres or at motorway services, for example.
