The new locally-assembled Mercedes-Benz E 350 e introduced

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia marks a new era in mobility with its latest Masterpiece, the E 350 e featuring the revolutionary Plug-in Hybrid technology. MBM hosted a media visit at its Pekan Production Plant in Pahang to help the media better understand the production process of an EEV, namely the Mercedes-Benz E350e. The E 350 e brings exceptional driving performance with its powerful Plug-in Hybrid module that delivers total system output of 210 kW (286 hp) and a torque of 550 Nm, yet allowing 33 kilometres in all- electric mode and a fuel consumption as low as 2.1l/100 km.

The E 350 e is equipped with product highlights such as AIR BODY CONTROL, Pre-Entry Climate Control system and an advanced energy recuperation mode, adding up to a truly exceptional driving comfort.

The E 350 e AMG Line lends a commanding presence with its distinctive and striking design through the AMG body styling and 19-inch AMG five-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels and the dynamic sporty interior with the AMG sports steering wheel.

The E 350 e Exclusive Line with its classic Mercedes look and an interior appeal that carries the modern luxury hallmark of the Mercedes-Benz craftsmanship, featuring high-grade materials such as Nappa leather upholstery and best in class features including the Burmester surround sound system and Widescreen Cockpit.

Limited to only 60 units, E 350 e Edition 60 features exclusive and luxurious options including 19-inch 6-spoke light alloy wheels, Exclusive Line interior with  designo  piano lacquer in black with flowing lines, designo two-tone macchiato beige and  saddle  brown interior, key in high-gloss white with ornamental surround in matt chrome, and the exclusive Edition 60 badge.

As part of the hybrid offensive strategy, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia today announces the availability of the new Mercedes-Benz E 350 e, its top of the range model with the superior hybrid technology in two variants - AMG Line and Exclusive Line, as well as a limited model, the E 350 e Edition 60.

“We are proud to present the locally-produced E 350 e as a continuation of our hybrid-offensive supporting the government’s initiative in becoming an energy efficient vehicle (EEV) hub. With the launch of our newest technology leader we underline our leadership position in the premium market and  reach  yet  another  milestone  in  superior  hybrid  technology  further  creating  benchmarks  in innovation and future mobility.” says Mark Raine, Vice President, Sales & Marketing Passenger Cars, Mercedes-Benz  Malaysia.

“The nation’s progress in the area of Energy Efficient Vehicles continues to be an area of interest for us and we can assure that Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is excited to continue playing an active role in supporting these efforts,” explains Dr Claus Weidner, President& CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.

The Plug-In Hybrid impresses with its dynamism and efficiency, allowing around 33 kilometres of all-electric and therefore locally emission-free driving. Its four-cylinder petrol engine, in conjunction with a powerful electric motor, gives it a total system output of 210 kW (286 hp) with a system torque of 550 Nm. With this set-up, the E 350 e achieves the performance of a sports car yet consumes less fuel than a small, compact-class car.

The E 350 e comes standard with the class leading AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension with continuously adjustable damping to ensure a very high standard of ride comfort and driving dynamics. The damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation, and can be set for more comfortable or sporty characteristics as required.

Together with DYNAMIC SELECT, AIR BODY CONTROL can be made more comfortable or sporty in the 3 stages "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport+". Thanks to the pneumatic all-round self- levelling suspension, the vehicle maintains a constant level irrespective of the load. In the "Comfort" transmission mode, the vehicle is at the normal level. To increase the ground clearance, the vehicle's ride height can be raised at the touch of a button to up to 25 mm above the normal level with rear- wheel drive and up to 35 mm with all-wheel drive. Once the vehicle speed exceeds approx. 80 km/h, the suspension is lowered to the normal level again. At speeds above approx. 120 km/h, the vehicle body is lowered by a further 15 mm to reduce aerodynamic drag and further improve driving stability. This lowered vehicle level is the same as that activated in the "Eco", "Sport" and "Sport+" transmission modes. Featuring nine forward gears, the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission takes dynamism, efficiency and comfort to a completely new level.

The E 350 e is equipped with enhanced MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, which open up new dimensions in headlamp technology. Each headlamp is equipped with 84 individually activated high- performance LEDs rather than 24, which means that they are exceptionally bright and precise, and automatically illuminate the road surface with a previously unsurpassed, precision-controlled distribution of light - without dazzling other road users. The head-up display shows the driver key information without the driver having to take their eyes off the road traffic conditions.

The E 350 e is also equipped with COMAND Online, which leaves virtually nothing to be desired in terms of infotainment, navigation and communication. Information is shown on the 31.2 cm (12.3- inch) high-resolution media display. Its highlights, alongside the double display, include the touch- sensitive Touch Controls on the steering wheel and the new, intelligent graphic design of the Multifunction Telephony. It allows mobile phones to be charged and, at the same time, connected to the vehicle's exterior aerial – with absolutely no need for cables or a telephone holder.

Burmester® surround sound system is available for superior listening pleasure. It drives 13 speakers with a 9-channel DSP amplifier and a total system power of 640 watts. All the speakers are additionally optimised for performance with the premium sound system.

With Parking Pilot and its inclusion of a 360° camera, all-round vision is made possible by the reversing cameras and three other additional cameras. Observation of the areas to the side and directly in front of the vehicle thus helps during parking and manoeuvring. The information from Parking Pilot and the cameras is graphically presented in full HD on the vehicle’s Widescreen Cockpit.

The E 350 e features a commanding yet sporty appearance that is typical of AMG, with perfectly coordinated equipment – from the dynamic AMG body styling and 19-inch AMG five -spoke light- alloy wheels.

The AMG Line interior differentiates itself from the other interiors in terms of both look and feel. Hallmark AMG features include the multifunction sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section, sports seats with horizontal quilting on the seat cushions and sporty backrest contour and AMG sports pedals.

The E 350 e is available in 2 variants, Exclusive Line and AMG Line, as well as the limited edition E 350 e Edition 60 at market launch.

The E 350 e Exclusive Line features the classic Mercedes look with an interior appeal that carries the modern luxury hallmark of the Mercedes-Benz craftsmanship, featuring high-grade materials such as Nappa leather upholstery and best in class features including the Burmester surround sound system and Widescreen Cockpit.

The E 350 e AMG Line lends a commanding presence with its distinctive and striking design through the AMG body styling and 19-inch AMG five-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels and the dynamic and sporty interior with metal weave trim, and AMG sports steering wheel.

Limited to only 60 units at launch, E 350 e Edition 60 features exclusive features and luxurious options including 19-inch 6-spoke light alloy wheels, Exclusive Line interior package with designo piano lacquer in black withflowing lines, designo two-tone macchiato beigeand saddle brown interior, keyin high-gloss white with ornamental surround in matt chrome, with the exclusive Edition 60 badge featured on the front fenders and centre console.
