Mercedes E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid Travels 830 Miles On A Single Tank Of Fuel [VIDEO]

New Mercedes E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID is the most efficient E-Class ever. Recently the E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid was put to a real-world test with ex-rally driver Mick Linford behind the wheel.

The E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID started its run from the main runway at Newquay Cornwall Airport– the most southern active airport in mainland Britain. Here Mich tested the car’s performance and accelerated from 0-62mph in a little over seven seconds before hitting maximum speed of 136mph.

After that the car was driven normally 830-miles north to Wick Airport in Scotland – the most northern airport in mainland Britain. Over a distance of 830-miles and two days, the hybrid E-Class achieved a peak speed of 136mph and returned economy of 67.3mpg.

In theory the range is in excess of 1,100-miles as there was still quarter of a tank fuel left at the Wick Airport.
