Mercedes has revealed its new A-Class and B-Class cars, which are both plug-in hybrids. Both the A250e and the B250e feature a near-identical design to their combustion engine counterparts. The plug-in hybrids have the same 1.33L four-cylinder engine, but also have a 75kW motor that can increase the car's range by 47 miles.
The A-Class car is currently available in Europe for a $40,980 price point for the hatchback version, and the sedan version is slightly more expensive with a $41,376 price pint. The B-Class model will be available within a few weeks according to Mercedes.
The A-Class vehicle is able to accelerate to a speed of 62MPH within 6.6 seconds, while the B-Class can reach that speed within in 6.8 seconds. The hybrid make of the car will also not restrict the car's cargo space.
