Together with the A250e, the B250e model is also getting the EQ Power label for the first time ever. By embracing this technology, Mercedes-Benz reaching an important milestone in catching up with the latest automotive trends and the movement towards emission-free transportation.
The joy of driving such a compact vehicle as the A-class really comes from a high system performance achieved by the shy 1.33-liter 4-cylinder combustion engine combined with an electric motor. The exact figures of the system output can be seen below.
Looking at the electrical part of the drivetrain only, it is capable of speeding up to 140 km/h, while, at the same time being able to drive 70-75 kilometers with 0-emissions from a single battery charge. That is a lithium-ion battery having a total capacity of nearly 15.6 kWh which can be charged at a 7.4 kWh Wallbox with either alternating current (AC) or with direct current (DC).
Auto Trendy’s take:
It is a little strange to see a compact car like the A-class getting the hybrid drivetrain after a large SUV like the GLC. However, it is better late than never and maybe better of the company’s future. Once a power unit configuration has been tested on the largest vehicle of the lineup, it would be a sure thing to work for the smaller ones. We, at Auto trendy, have never doubted Mercedes-Benz and its innovative power and thus, we are eagerly waiting for more great news soon.
