To drive, the E 350 e boasts outstanding quietness. It was Toyota’s luxury Lexus arm that spotted the potential of hybrid drive as a way of enhancing refinement and performance rather than just economy, and Mercedes-Benz have been catching up, with hybrid options in the S-Class limo and here in the mainstream E-Class, the car the company has traditionally relied on to make its profits. So for anything up to about 20 miles it can travel silently on its electric reserves, and never does the petrol engine (a refined unit in any case, albeit with just the four cylinders) intrude. The nine-speed electric gearbox is less fussy and buzzy than the constant velocity unit you’ll find in a Prius for example, and is all the better of it. Select “Comfort” mode (there are options from Economy to Sport +), and the air suspension and supportive seats will place you in the company of one of the nicest ways for the upper-middle classes to get from A to B
The plug-in hybrid E 350 e AMG line uses the combination of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an electric motor to deliver a combined peak output of 281bhp and what Mercedes predicts will be official fuel consumption of 113mpg and CO2 emissions of 57g/km.
We know that achieving anything close to those numbers in the real world will mean making extensive use of the ability to recharge the 350 e’s 6.2kWh capacity battery pack using the charging port built into the rear bumper. This can replenish the pack in around an hour and a half using a high-voltage charger, or three hours via a standard domestic socket. The car’s electric-only range is a relatively modest 20 miles, but several different modes allow the assistance to be used or conserved in different ways. These modes are Hybrid, which leaves the powertrain to its own devices; E-Mode, which operates it as a pure EV until the battery pack runs down; E-Save, which keeps the battery level constant, conserving it for use later; and Charge, which uses the engine to replenish the pack on the move. The system also communicates with the sat-nav so that when a destination is programmed it will work out the most efficient strategy over the entire route, for example, running the battery right down if the car knows it will end up at its home charging point.
Most of the driving experience is identical to the very impressive E220 D. The hybrid has an identically nice-feeling cabin, the same dynamic options of near-autonomy and equal high-speed refinement when asked to deal with a motorway cruise.
The electron-fuelled side of the powertrain is very well suited to the urban grind. The E 350 e will try to do its trundling under electric power whenever possible, making it whisper quiet in town. It accelerates surprisingly hard before firing the petrol engine into life, with a haptic throttle making it easy to judge when this will happen – the pedal gets firm when the electric motor is giving its all.
For serious speed leave you in no doubt there’s a relatively small four-cylinder unit under the bonnet. But performance is strong and the throttle response is excellent, with the braking system also blending its regeneration and old-fashioned friction seamlessly.

“After just over 3,000 miles and 10 weeks I’m averaging 166.2 mpg (only filled up once from new).
Car glides along and has drastically changed my driving style from my previous Audi A7 Quattro. But put into sport + with a full charge and it flies along.
I can manage a week of daily commutes without the engine kicking in as I have charge station at home and the office. Charge takes +/-1hour
Max range shown has been 16 miles but even driving frugally it’s fully depleted on the 12 mile journey to the office but often 6/7 mile range left on return home journey (hills drain the battery).
Range anxiety has got me bad
The BIK saving was the sole motivating factor but the e350e is a great car.
Get a e350e and you might even become a safer driver like me”
