Mercedes-Benz A250e PHEV

Mercedes’ first tilt at a small-car plug-in hybrid in Australia was the A250e hatch and sedan (for a $3000 premium), released in 2020.

Powered by a perky and punchy 1.3-litre turbo engine and electric motor combo, over 70km of battery-only driving is claimed to be possible (though unlikely), before switching to petrol motivation.
