Fuel Efficiency Rating
From the outside, the GLE550e is virtually indistinguishable from non-plug vehicles in the GLE line. On the inside, the differences start to become more noticeable. Like many vehicles adapted (but not originally designed) to house a battery and electric motor, the GLE plug-in loses cargo space compared to gas-only models. The 8.7-kWh battery pack is placed under the boot floor, and cuts cargo space by either 10 percent or 30 percent depending upon whether the rear seats are down or up. In fact, Mercedes’s smaller crossover SUVs beat the GLE550e in rear storage capacity.
