Mercedes-Benz Malaysia just introduced a new C-Class model on our shores. Locally assembled in Pekan, Pahang, the Mercedes-Benz C350e is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) with a rather respectable 117km electric range on the (stringent) WLTP cycle.

Pricing wise, the C350e is estimated to go for RM355,000 in Malaysia. According to Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, the final pricing of the PHEV is still pending approval, though the carmaker elaborated that this estimated pricing is very close to the actual price tag.

For that kind of money, the C350e offers a combination of a 2.0L turbo engine (204hp/320Nm) and an electric motor (127hp/440Nm) for a total output of 313hp and 550Nm of torque. This is good for a top speed of 245kmph with a 0-100kmph time of 6.1 seconds.

As mentioned, the C350e is a PHEV, and its 25.4kWh high-voltage battery offers up to 117km of all-electric range. The sedan supports up to 11kW AC charging as well, which takes about two hours for a full charge. Unfortunately, the C350e for the Malaysian market (unlike Thailand) does not support faster DC charging.

Nonetheless, the Mercedes-Benz C350e is now available for pre-booking through Mercedes-Benz Malaysia’s official website; local deliveries of the PHEV are expected to begin next month in March 2024. If you’re keen to give the C350e – or other Mercedes-Benz models – a test drive, you can do so at Plaza Arkadia in Desa Park City, Kuala Lumpur until 25 February this Sunday.
