2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA PHEV

After the A 250 e, get ready for a plug-in hybrid CLA to hit the market

The Mercedes-Benz CLA is en route to receiving a plug-in-hybrid variant that would go under the 250 e badging. Info is scarce, but Stuttgart’s compact four-door coupé could be in line for the same powertrain used by the A-Class and B-Class PHEV.

On the design front, changes are to be of minimal impact both inside and out and will be resumed to new badging and the addition of plug-in sockets that would allow users to recharge their cars when not in use. Although there’s no word on a debut date, the 2020 Geneva Motor Show looks like a plausible launch platform for the CLA PHEV. Here’s everything we know so far.

Here’s a good look at Mercedes fastest mid-size SUV

It was only a matter of time before Mercedes’ AMG division had its way with the Mercedes GLE SUV, and that day has come. Unveiled at the 2019 Los Angles Auto Show, the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S comes complete with a Panamerican-style grille, massive corner intakes, and the typical AMG exhaust outlets and diffuser. The interior is as luxurious as it gets in this segment and comes complete with plenty of AMG-specific styling cues like the infotainment system graphics, interior badges, and race-inspired, flat-bottom steering wheel.

Under the hood lurks the same 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 found in the larger Mercedes-AMG GLS 63, and it even delivers the same 602 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. It also has that EQ Boost starter-generator that pumps out 21 extra horses and 184 extra pound-feet of torque. The 4Matic AWD system can distribute torque between the axles as needed, so much so that it can even send 100-percent of the engine’s power to the rear wheels.

The good news here, however, is that the GLE 63 is smaller, so it’s actually quicker in the 60-mph sprint than its bigger brother. While the GLS 63 S does the sprint in 4.1 seconds, the GLE 63 S will get you to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds – supercar speeds not that long ago. We’ve added a beautiful picture gallery to our slider above and the page below, so go ahead and drool a bit as you scroll through our images. Who knows, maybe you’ll find yourself a new desktop wallpaper.

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQS (updated)

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQS (updated)

The German firm is gearing up to deliver a competitor for the Tesla Model S

The Mercedes-Benz EQS is an upcoming all-electric car based on the Vision EQS concept that the German firm unveiled in 2019. Part of the EQ division that handles Mercedes’ electric vehicle operations, the EQS will join the existing EQC, EQV, and Smart EQ city cars. Based on the name alone, the EQS will act as the range-topping model in the company’s electric car range. But it probably won’t be an electric version of the S-Class. Instead, it could have a size similar to the CLS, so it will fit in the midsize market. Either way, it will be Mercedes-Benz answer to EVs like the Tesla Model S, the Porsche Taycan, and the upcoming Audi e-tron GT.

Update 12-4-2019: The Mercedes EQS was spotted doing some cold weather and snow testing – here’s the latest round of spy shots and what we’ve learned.

Mercedes Says Screw Displacement: We’re Putting a Hybridized M139 Four-Cylinder in the 2022 AMG C63

The M139 four-banger is on the verge of reshaping the Mercedes-AMG lineup as we know it

The new M139 four-cylinder turbocharged engine that powers the new Mercedes-AMG A45 is a prime candidate to replace the 4.0-liter bi-turbo V-8 powerhouse found under the hood of the Mercedes-AMG C63 super-sedan, with a little help from the wonder of electricity. As a result, the next-generation 2022 C63 will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbo engine boosted by a 48-volt electric system - and before you start frowning, get this: the new powertrain will be just as potent as the V-8 and then some.

Mercedes Just Broke Up the AMG GLE53 and GLE63 Twins In a Weird Way

Could this strategy backfire on Mercedes in some way?

Mercedes-Benz is not above everyone when it comes to throwing curveballs that no one sees coming. Well, it just landed a heater with the debut of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 580, the new king of the GLE lineup, unseating the Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 for the throne. The new GLE 580 is essentially a non-AMG crossover on steroids. It features Mercedes’ tried-and-tested 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine that’s further boosted by a 48-volt mild hybrid electrical system. It’s the same setup you see in the GLS 580, further expanding the reach of Merc’s new electrically boosted V-8 engine. More importantly, the GLE 580 elevates the ceiling of the GLE lineup.
