The Mercedes-Benz A 250 e plug-in hybrid is now on sale, with prices starting from £32,990 for the Hatchback and £33,585 for the Saloon.

The A 250 e features a 1.3-litre petrol engine with an output of 160 hp, with an additional 102 hp available from the electric motor. The on-board battery has a total useable capacity of 10.9 kWh, meaning the A 250 e has an all-electric range of up to 44 miles.

The A 250 e hatchback can deliver up to 201.8 combined mpg and emits just 32 g/km of CO2 with the Saloon delivering up to 217.3 combined mpg and emitting just 31 g/km.

An 8G-DCT automatic transmission comes as standard, along with a 7.4 kW AC on-board charger.

AMG Line models come as standard with MBUX multimedia system, including ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice recognition, privacy glass; heated front seats; Thermotronic climate control; 18-inch five-twin-spoke alloy wheels; Artico man-made leather and Dinamica microfibre upholstery.

For an additional £1,500, AMG Line Executive adds smartphone integration; 10.25-inch media Touchscreen display; Parking package; Mirror package; and wireless charging.

AMG Line Premium includes 10.25-inch digital cockpit; augmented navigation; Keyless entry; ambient lighting, with a choice of 64 colours; rear armrest; illuminated doorsills with ‘Mercedes-Benz’ lettering; Mercedes-Benz advanced sound system; and aluminium trim. The Hatchback costs £35,990 and the Saloon costs £36,585.

The range-topping AMG Line Premium Plus adds a panoramic sunroof; Multibeam LED headlights; memory seats with lumbar support for driver and front passenger; and Traffic Sign Assist.

The only standalone option for the A 250 e is the £1,495 Driving Assistance package (available on AMG Line Premium Plus only). Driving Assistance includes Active Blind Spot Assist; Active Braking Assist with cross-traffic function; Active Distance Assist Distronic; Active Emergency Stop Assist; Active Lane-change Assist; Active Speed Limit Assist; Active Steering Assist; Evasive Steering Assist; Pre-Safe Plus; and route-based speed adaptation.

Given the A 250 e AMG Line Hatchback emits just 32 g/km of CO2 (NEDC-equivalent), and has an all-electric range of 44 miles, in the 2020-21 tax year company car drivers will pay only eight per cent BIK*. This means customers could save up to £2,384 in BIK in just the first year, not including the additional fuel savings, compared to an A 200 AMG Line.
