A Tale of Two Luxury Hybrids: Mercedes Benz E300 & Lexus ES300h
Due to the increasing popularity of hybrid models around the world, more and more people seem to drifting towards these vehicles in order to take full advantage of their low emissions and superior fuel economy. Even brands and manufacturers that are known for developing first-class luxury models have decided to join the party by offering eco-friendly versions of their top-selling models as well. Two of these models – the Mercedes Benz E300 BlueTec Hybrid along with the Lexus ES300h have been able to build a large following in a relatively short period of time, providing high hopes of exponential sales volumes all around the world – especially in Thailand.

Mercedes-Benz E300 BlueTec Hybrid
One of the major highlights of the Mercedes Benz E300 is that it has great gas mileage, but that is actually just the tip of the iceberg. This particular model is powered directly by a 2,143cc four-cylinder turbo diesel engine that is able to pump out well over 200 horsepower along with 500Nm. However, if you decide to go with an electric motor instead you will be able to produce an additional 27hp & 280Nm. With less than 145g/km of carbon dioxide being emitted from this leading model, it is also capable of doing wonders for the environment as well. It has even been reported that under certain circumstances the engine is capable of switching off automatically just so that it can maintain a considerably high level of fuel efficiency.

Lexus ES300h
Along with the Mercedes Benz model, Thailand motors and a host of other car dealerships will be able to sell the Lexus ES300h as well. It has already been launched specifically for the global market but Thailand Motors customers will be able to eventually purchase this car much sooner than they might think as well.
The high level of comfort that Lexus has become known for over the years remains the same with this particular model. There is more than enough space that is provided for the average consumer in the front as well as the rear simply because the overall length of this model has been slightly increased in comparison to its predecessors. As you enjoy a fuel-efficient journey, you can offer a fully serene environment that is quiet and peaceful.

All mirror and seating positioning are memorized to move automatically whenever you are entering or even exiting the vehicle and the Nano-technology makes it easier to keep your skin moisturized as you drive. There is also a regenerative braking system that efficiently works along with the electric motor as an alternative type of generator. This is truly one of the most remarkable hybrid models ever to be designed.

The Bottom Line
You can spend a substantial amount of time researching different hybrid models to try and find the one that is the best deal for the most competitive price. However, instead of settling for low-quality brands and manufacturers, it is good to know that at least now you are able to choose a high-quality luxury brand and still enjoy the same efficiency.
