Like its slightly faster brother/sister vehicle the Mercdes GLE 550e, this vehicle is an extremely fast SUV with a terrific image and bags of style. It will also appeal greatly to company drivers, as its tax-saving CO2 rating just 78g/km – helped by the fact that this car can be driven for short journeys in all-electric mode (albeit for just 18.6 miles). It also comes packed with features such as crosswind assist, and active braking assist with cross traffic function. In our view it’s great looking, high-performance vehicles like this that are hugely helping drive PHEV adoption.
