The 2015 Mercedes C-Class plug-in hybrid has been spied undisguised near the company's headquarters in Stuttgart.
Looking virtually identical to the standard model, the plug-in hybrid variant is distinguished by a rear charging port that is integrated into the rear bumper. The model has also been equipped with active shutter grille that helps to improve the car's aerodynamics when additional engine cooling is not required.
Our spies also snapped an interior photo but it doesn't reveal any changes. However, we can expect a revised COMAND system that shows hybrid-specific driving information.
Mercedes has be relatively tight-lipped about the model but it is expected to use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a 68 PS (50 kW) electric motor. However, there has also been speculation that the model could use a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 instead of the aforementioned four-cylinder.
