Mercedes-Benz GLC gets Plug-in Variant, know how much has changed from before and when will it be launched in India

Mercedes-Benz has launched the Plug-in Hybrid variant of the GLC SUV. A new variant called the Mercedes-Benz GLC350e 4Matic Plug-in Hybrid has joined the GLC portfolio. It will be sold globally by the end of the year.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC350e is available in a total of 3 trims – Standard, Exclusive and Pinnacle. This Plug-in Hybrid variant of GLC looks almost similar in terms of design. It is available in 11 different exterior colour options, while the SUV also gets 8 unique wheel designs.

This lavish SUV's interior is equipped with standard features like heated front seats, adaptive high, blind-spot assist, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, an 11.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, power liftgate, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

In addition, the premium trim includes illuminated door sills, ambient lighting, and a Burmester 3D surround sound audio system. The Pinnacle trim level includes all other features except the upgraded digital light headlamps, noise and heat-insulating glass, and head-up display. There are thirteen different upholstery options available for the new GLC variant.

A 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine coupled to a 24.8-kWh battery pack and an electric motor producing 132 bhp powers the GLC350e 4Matic plug-in hybrid. The maximum power output from the hybrid drivetrain is 308 horsepower, and the maximum torque is 550 Nm. According to the automaker, the electric motor provides 80 per cent of the total torque output at 442 Nm instantaneously. This SUV is said to have a 0-100 kmph acceleration time of 6.6 seconds.

The German high-end automaker has not disclosed an expected arrival date in India. Nonetheless, the hybrid model is anticipated to be introduced here as well, given that the GLC is among the brand's best-selling models in India.
