Taking over the role of the early 500e from the previous generaqtion GLE, Mercedes-Benz has introduced a new Hybrid model into the new 2020 Mercedes GLE UK model range, this time as a diesel-electric SUV. Called the GLE 350de, it uses the same combination seen in the new E-Class with a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that produces 192 horsepower, backed up by an electric motor mounted in the 9 speed automatic gearbox that gives an extra 134 horsepower for an overall 315 horsepower when both motors run in tandem, and a 0-60 time of6.8 seconds, with a top speed of 131mph. This is a plug in hybrid, so is designed to be charged up at home overnight and has one of the largest batteries ever seen on a hybrid with a capacity of 31.2kWh (some fully electric cars don’t have a battery that big!) and it gives a fantastic electric-only range of around 60 miles, and a top speed of 100mph in electric only mode. It's also got a fast charging facility of 60W so can be used relatively quickly on a recharge at public charge points too. So if you do a lot of commuting at slower speeds where the battery will do all the work, plus some longer journeys, and as long as you have the facility to recharge overnight at home, this could be a great car for you!
