Carmakers are struggling to keep new cars a secret these days – Chevrolet Bolt EV, Hyundai Ionic, Faraday Future concept, to mention just few early leaks – now the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class photos have leaked before its official unveiling at the 2016 NAIAS.
At this point, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is conventional car, but we present it with confidence that a plug-in hybird version will follow in 2017.
The 5th generation E-Class is a looker, but don’t expect all-electric range to be much higher than 10-15 miles EPA (more under the European NEDC cycle).
“An E350e plug-in hybrid, with a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine and an electric motor, will join the range within a year of launch. It’s said to have an electric-only range of 20 miles. “
