Mercedes introduces GLC Coupé with three PHEV versions
Following the generation change of the GLC, Mercedes has presented the new edition of the GLC Coupé. This is to be delivered in the Western European markets from July 2023 – among other things with three PHEV engine versions.
The PHEV variants are the 300 e 4MATIC, 400 e 4MATIC and 300 de 4MATIC. All three PHEV versions use an electric motor with an output of 100 kW and a battery with a nominal capacity of 31.2 kWh, which should enable purely electric ranges of between 113 and 131 kilometres, depending on the variant. The system output is 230 and 280 kW for the two petrol PHEVs, respectively, and 245 kW in combination with the diesel engine. All combustion engines are two-litre four-cylinder units.
Mercedes offers an optional DC charging option for the battery, in which case the battery can be charged with up to 60 kW – in around 30 minutes, according to Mercedes. For AC charging, depending on the market, a three-phase onboard charger with 11 kW is installed.
At 4.76 metres, the new model is 31 millimetres longer than its predecessor and also five millimetres higher – the vehicle width has remained the same at 1.89 metres. As the track has been widened at the front and rear, handling is said to improve. The luggage compartment of the plug-in hybrids is between 390 and 1,330 litres. We have described other innovations that Mercedes has introduced with the new GLC generation in more detail in the article on the GLC SUV.
The Stuttgart company has not yet announced prices for the new GLC Coupé.
At the beginning of this year, Mercedes also revised the larger GLE series. There, too, the three plug-in hybrids with four-cylinder engines, 100 kW electric motor and 31.2 kWh battery are offered in the SUV and SUV Coupé.
