The Mercedes C-Class has been a staple for the German brand for a long time now. Offering a smaller, more affordable option than the E-Class, the vehicle is squarely aimed at commuters and business users.
The “e” variant is no different, as it looks to add an extra electric string to its bow. Offering around 33 miles of pure electric driving this premium saloon offers enough will be enough for most commutes and typical weekend driving.
For anything more, the 2.0-litre petrol engine will have you covered.
The pure electric mode makes the Mercedes C-Class even quieter than it already is, meaning it is extremely comfortable on shorter journeys or driving around town.
The interior design is one of the smoothest-looking available, even if some aren’t convinced by the position of the infotainment screen – it still oozes charm and luxury.
Charging will take a measly 1.5 hours if using a dedicated 7.4kW home charge point.
Charging at home
You can find full details of how long it takes to charge this vehicle from empty to full using a 7.4kW home charge point at the bottom of this page.
However, it's important to note that most electric car charging is done overnight when you're asleep (so you wake up to a charged vehicle) and it's very unlikely you will ever need to charge the battery from completely empty to completely full. So, in reality, most drivers will only need to "top up" their car's battery overnight - for example, from 50% to 80%.
We tested how often the average driver would need to charge each week using the Jaguar GO I-PACE app. See how we got on in this video.
