Luxury Mercedes hybrid comes to the UK

The first ever Mercedes-Benz E300 BlueTEC hybrids have arrived in Britain and Climatecars, the green car service that are based in London have become the first car fleet in the UK to run these new and exciting cars. These vehicles will now be the new executive option for those customers who want to travel in luxury but at the same time reduce the carbon footprint they leave behind.

The E300 BlueTEC is a combination of efficiency with its 2.2L 4 cylinder diesel engine and powerful 20KW electric motor. It is capable of achieving an impressive 67.3mpg and has a CO2 emission of only 109 g/km.

Nick Andrews, Head of Fleet at Mercedes-Benz UK, said: “The E300 BlueTEC Hybrid provides both luxury and efficiency, and we are pleased to provide companies like Climatecars the solution to their vehicle needs.”

Climatecars will be offering their new executive service at competitive prices, giving Londoners a guilt-free alternative to other luxury car services, but without charging a premium. Central London to Heathrow for example will be approximately £75, making Climatecars premium service about the same cost as taking a black taxi.

Nicko Williamson, Founder & Managing Director of Climatecars, says: “Climatecars are delighted to be the first in the UK to run the Mercedes-Benz E300 BlueTEC Hybrid vehicles. Our clients have expressed a desire for premium vehicles and now finally we have a luxury hybrid in the E-Class to offer them as an alternative to our standard hybrid. Climatecars is about offering a green alternative with superior service and at no extra cost, so the E300 BlueTEC Hybrid fits our mould perfectly.”
