Standalone, the engine makes 329 horsepower while the electric motor manages 114 horsepower. This powertrain helps the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Plug-In Hybrid cover 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. You can drive the GLE-Class Plug-In Hybrid for 12 miles on the electric system alone, making it good for small trips in the city. Combined, the GLE-Class Plug-In Hybrid achieves an impressive 43 MPGe while getting 21 MPG from the traditional engine alone. With a base price of MSRP $66,300, the GLE-Class Plug-In Hybrid makes a formidable competitor in the midsize SUV segment, competing with the likes of the BMW X5 Plug-In Hybrid SUV, the Volvo XC90 Plug-In Hybrid SUV, and the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid SUV.
