The new C-Class BlueTEC HYBRID: Leading innovation in premium cars with the new diesel hybrid engine
The new C-Class BlueTEC HYBRID, latest from the C-Class, enhances the Contemporary Luxury hybrid diesel category’s portfolio. With 2 exciting models; C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID AMG Dynamic and C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID Estate AMG Dynamic, both equipped with HYBRID Technology, the cars come with an excellent power control system which runs on a four-cylinder diesel engine with an electric motor. The automatic transmission ensures smooth driving operation, saving on fuel consumption and reduced pollution every time you slow down or stop the car. The electric motor acts as a generator to convert kinetic energy into electrical energy stored in the lithium ion battery. When energy is required for the motor this is converted back to AC as it leaves the battery. These new vehicles also pass the stringent emission standards for light-duty vehicles (Euro 6).
Both of the new C-Class models also exude a sporty exterior, featuring the AMG Sports Package; the avant garde 18-inch five-spoke alloy grille. Also sporting the AMG Bodystyling, the centre of gravity is lower resulting in sportier driving dynamics. It also features a sporty front grille accentuated by the large central Mercedes star on the front apron, the “twin blade” radiator grille. The high-quality interior features a luxurious yet bold look. The AMG Line multifunction steering wheel comes with flattened lower section.
C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID AMG Dynamic – The interior has been meticulously designed to offer the highest level of luxury and comfort, but at the same time strongly maintaining a sporty finish.

An innovative touchpad in the handrest provides simple and intuitive operation of all head-unit functions, such as the MB Audio 20, through finger movements.
C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID Estate AMG Dynamic is launched for the first time in Thailand.
