2024 Mercedes-Benz C350e PHEV launched in Malaysia - est. RM 355k, up to 117 km pure EV range 01

Here's the 2024 Mercedes-Benz C350e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) that's just been launched in Malaysia. Locally-assembled (CKD) in Pekan, Pahang, here's three main things you should know: estimated prices begin from RM 355,000, deliveries begin in March 2024, and it replaces the C300 AMG Line.

The C-Class price range for Malaysia is now as follows:

  • C200 Avantgarde - RM 292,888
  • C300 AMG Line - RM 333,888
  • C350e AMG Line - est. RM 355,000

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1685525140735-0'); });

By virtue of being a plug-in hybrid (PHEV), naturally this is also more powerful than the model it replaces. Under the hood is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 204 PS / 320 Nm, which is then paired with a 129 PS / 440 Nm electric motor to yield a total system output of 313 PS and 550 Nm.

Drive is sent to the rear-wheels (RWD) through a 9-speed automatic transmission.

The all-electric driving portion of the powertrain draws from the 25.4 kWh battery that offers a pure EV range of up to 117 km (WLTP), up to 140 km/h. Top speed is a claimed 245 km/h.

Charging the C350e's battery is via 11 kW AC charging, which takes about two hours to full from a three-phase wallbox.

50 kW DC fast charging is not offered at the moment, based on projected usage of the car (mostly urban miles), but Mercedes-Benz Malaysia will continue to observe market conditions.

Unique to the C350e is also passive adaptive self-levelling rear air suspension, which should aid in comfort and handling chops.
