Mercedes-Benz unveiled at the 2015 New York International Auto Show the new GLE, of which a 550 e version will be offered with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain.

Steve Cannon, President of Mercedes-Benz USA said:

“The GLE 500 e 4MATIC is the first Mercedes SUV with plug-in hybrid technology. This high-tech drive combines the highest level of energy efficiency with outstanding performance and excellent road manners.”

Mercedes-Benz believes that the 8.8 kWh battery will enable up to 30 km (19 miles) of all electric range. More info can be found here.

The style of new GLE reflects changes implemented earlier in the smaller GLE Coupé, which premiered at the Los Angeles Motor Show.
