“Better late than never” should be what the team at Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) had in mind when they unveiled the Mercedes-Benz E 350 e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Edition 60. Launched alongside the regular E 350 e Exclusive and AMG Line, the Edition 60 was introduced in conjunction with our nations’ 60th Independence Day.

Build upon the regular E 350 e Exclusive, the Edition 60 gets unique interior trims as well as small additional details on the exterior. Priced at RM408,888, the Edition 60 carries a premium of RM13k over the E 350 e AMG Line and is limited to 60 units nationwide.
