How long does it take to charge the Mercedes-Benz C300de?

Charging the Mercedes-Benz C300de takes approximately 1 hour and 49 minutes to charge from zero to full using a typical 7kW home charging point.

However, most drivers "top up" their PHEV, so charging times are often much shorter. Plus, our smart EV chargers let you schedule a charge overnight, allowing your PHEV to recharge its battery while you recharge yours!

Most plug-in hybrids cannot rapid charge however, please check the table below to find out if the Mercedes-Benz C300de is an exception to this rule.

What is the all-electric range of the Mercedes-Benz C300de?

The range of the Mercedes-Benz C300de is 35 miles. This is the WLTP-certified range, which is based on a standardised test all electrhic vehicles go through in Europe.

Just like the MPG figure on a petrol or diesel vehicle, the official range of an electric car should be taken as a guide to help compare with other vehicles rather than a guaranteed range for day-to-day driving. The actual full electric range will vary depending on driving efficiency, speed, temperature, weather conditions and more.  

What is the battery size of the Mercedes-Benz C300de?

The battery size of the Mercedes-Benz C300de is 13.5kWh.

Battery sizes on electric vehicles vary from around 30kWh (kilowatt hours) to as big as 100kWh and higher. The bigger the battery the more range you get generally speaking, although the vehicle's weight and efficiency are huge factors in the actual range available. 

There are also steps you can take to prolong the life of an EV battery. Check out our guide to electric vehicle battery maintenance for tips on keeping your EV in tip-top health.

What happens when an EV battery eventually dies though? Many of the parts can be re-used or recycled - learn more about what happens to an electric car battery at the end of its life.

The company car tax rate (also known as benefit in kind rate) for the Mercedes-Benz C300de is 12%.

How much benefit-in-kind tax you'll need to pay for your electric vehicle will depend on its emissions, its range and its worth. You can check out our guide to company car tax for electric cars to learn more.
