Mercedes-Benz has recently unveiled its new GLC Coupé edition, which is set to hit the Western European markets in July 2023. The latest version of the popular model is equipped with three PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) engine options: the 300 e 4MATIC, 400 e 4MATIC, and 300 de 4MATIC.
All three PHEV variants come with an electric motor generating an output of 100 kW and a 31.2 kWh battery. Depending on the version, the GLC Coupé can travel between 113 and 131 kilometres solely on electric power. The petrol PHEVs have a system output of 230 and 280 kW, respectively, while the diesel engine version generates 245 kW. All three variants come with two-litre four-cylinder engines.
Mercedes has also included an optional DC charging option for the GLC Coupé’s battery, enabling it to be charged up to 60 kW in about 30 minutes. For AC charging, the model features a three-phase onboard charger with 11 kW, depending on the market.

Mercedes has not yet announced pricing details for the new GLC Coupé. However, the automaker has already updated the larger GLE series earlier this year, featuring the same three PHEV models equipped with four-cylinder engines, 100 kW electric motor, and a 31.2 kWh battery.
The latest generation of the GLC Coupé and SUV boasts several new features introduced by Mercedes-Benz. With its cutting-edge technology and sleek design, the GLC Coupé is poised to set new standards for luxury SUVs in Europe and beyond.
