German luxury automaker, Mercedes-Benz launched its fifth-generation C-Class in India last year. The new C-Class is available in three variants, C200, C200d & C300d with a choice of petrol and diesel powertrains. We drove the C300 diesel this week, and here is what we think about it
A 6.1 kWh battery pack and electric motor are included, providing enough power for around 12 km of the electric-only drive. Yet, according to Mercedes-AMG, the car can reach speeds of up to 130 kmph when operating solely in the electric mode
