Mercedes-Benz has reportedly announced pricing for the all-new, first ever hybrid powered E-Class sedan, the 2013 E400 Hybrid. Starting at just $56,705, the new 2013 Mercedes-Benz E400 Hybrid costs about $3,600 more than the diesel powered E350 BlueTech sedan, but $4,600 more than a base E350.
Much like the hybrid version of Mercedes’ S-Class, the S400 hybrid, the E400 Hybrid gets the same direct-injected V6 setup complete with the S400’s seven-speed automatic, and an electric motor in between. The ending result is 302hp and 273 lb-ft of torque produced by the V6, while the electric motor ads up to 27hp and 207 lb-ft of torque.
Official fuel economy figures have yet to be released, but the E400 Hybrid is expected to get 24/32/27 city/highway/combined.
