Hybrid gasoline built on the basis of two-liter turbo engine with power up to 211 horsepower. This motor is not used for the first time the “Mercedes” part of hybrid installation. But thanks to the improvement of design and new electric motor total power increased to 320 forces and 700 Nm of torque. This system is designed exclusively for line of models E-class e 300.
