    Hi All,
    I have just purchased a 2015 C350e. I went for the Premium Plus model and the car is stunning. I love it but the MPG is shocking at the moment.
    The battery on a full charge only reports 11 miles but drops massively once i start moving and the petrol is only giving me between 20 and 30 MPG. This can't be right can it........??
    I would love to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks

    Getting the e version could be the mistake. :D very nice cars but I feel mercedes just havent quite cracked the Hybrid technology. Never as economical as suggested. How many miles does the car have.? :eek:

    Hi all, thanks for all the responses, it looks like this is about right then. The car is on a 65 plate with 62k on the clock. Really thought it would do better but i guess thats just not the case.
    Thanks for the welcome guys.

    You may find things improve a little as the weather gets warmer.

    Let's put it this way - what he saved on BIK Tax he spends on fuel in comparison to the BMW 320d he had before

    Just had a read through this, i thought that it was just going to mention battery running until the end when he also mentioned he was getting 20mpg on the engine. It looks like this engine is ALOT more thirstier than Mercedes first claimed!

    I just had a look at the article as i have the C300h, and their real world figure is spot on to what I get.

    This is very good site for comparing makes and models along with giving all the facts and figures both claimed and real world.
