The fifth generation of the Mercedes-Benz E350 is to be launched around mid-2016 with a plug-in hybrid E350e version to follow probably in 2017.
Mercedes-Benz E350e is to be equipped with 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine and, as in case of Daimler's other plug-in hybrids, will have only about 20 miles of all-electric range.
20 miles of AER under the optimistic NEDC, of course. That works out to just about ~12 miles in the real world.
One year ago, Daimler announced 10 new plug-in hybrid models by 2017:
