If you’re looking to save money on gas while also helping the environment but also insist on uncompromising levels of luxury and performance, then it’s likely that you’ve checked out the lineup of new Mercedes-Benz plug-in hybrids. The plug-in hybrid takes hybrid technology to the next level with advanced engineering that leads to even more fuel savings. Check out this guide from Mercedes-Benz Burlington of the benefits of plug-in technology, and then make your way to our dealership to check out our plug-in lineup.

What is a Plug-In Hybrid?

Like traditional hybrid vehicles, plug-in hybrids use powertrains that are made up of a traditional combustion gasoline engine and one or more electric motors. What sets a plug-in hybrid powertrain apart is the fact that the electric motor can be charged by plugging it into a power source. This allows these specialized electric motors to run for a period of time without the use of the gasoline engine at all.

Advantages of a Plug-In Hybrid

Here are just some of the reasons to consider a plug-in hybrid for your next fuel-efficient vehicle:

  1. Save More Money on Gas: Perhaps the most obvious advantage of a plug-in hybrid is the fact that you’ll save more money at the tank. Because the electric motor can run independently when charged, you’ll use no gasoline during this mode of operation.
  2. Reduce carbon emissions: The less gasoline you pump out of the tank, the less carbon you’re pumping into the atmosphere. It’s a win, win!
  3. Potentially use no fuel on commutes: The average commute is between just 15-40 miles round trip. If that’s the case for you, then many plug-in hybrid vehicles will allow you to drive your daily commute without tapping into a single ounce of gasoline.
