As Mercedes-Benz has to hit ever increasing emissions targets, they have launched an all new hybrid version of the GLE SUV to replace the previous 500e hybrid seen in the last generation model. This time it's a diesel-electric model that combines the popular 2.0 litre diesel engine seen in the 300d models along with a powerful electric motor that gives a combined output of 315 horsepower - very similar overall output to what you'd get in the 400d. There's a frankly huge battery fitted with a capacity of 31.2kWh that means it will run on electric power along for 55 - 60 miles at speeds of up to 100 mph, which would more than cover most people’s commutes, with the diesel engine kicking in when more acceleration is needed or at higher speeds on motorways etc. If you do a lot of commuting in heavy traffic in city centres etc, and have the facility to recharge at home overnight then this could be the perfect GLE for you, with very low CO2 levels, and could save you considerably in fuel bills compared to the diesel version.
