Mercedes has announced that it will field its new 2017 Mercedes-Honda Civic Hybrid at the upcoming 2018 World Motor Sport Council in Barcelona.
The new hybrid has been developed by the German company and is the first fully electrified production car in its new line-up, which also includes the Renault Clio and Honda Civic Type R.
The first Civic Hybrid will be introduced in 2019.
Mercedes’ new hybrid, which will also be available in 2020, is expected to have a range of 100 km (62 miles) with a top speed of 217 km/h (163 mph).
In addition to the 2017 Mercedes Hybrid, Mercedes-Benz has also announced the launch of the new 2017-20 Civic Type S.
The Civic Type-S is expected in 2021, but will be followed by the new Civic Type X and the new Mercedes-AMG GT.
The Japanese manufacturer also announced a new, turbocharged V6-powered, front-wheel-drive coupe, the M3.
The M3 will be available to the public in 2021 and will be offered with a range between 300 and 350 km (186 to 203 miles) on a full charge.
In addition, Mercedes will also unveil the new DTM class racer, the Mercedes-Daimler-Benz GLA.
The Daimler GLA will be the only vehicle in the Mercedes GLA class to feature a new turbocharged engine.
The engine, which is based on the same 3.0-liter V6 found in the 2017-2020 M3, will produce 1,500 hp and 1,200 lb-ft (1,100 to 1,250 kW) of torque.
This new powertrain also will be powered by a four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, while the front axle will be upgraded to a rear-wheel drive layout.
It will be produced in the same vein as the current GLA sports car, but with a larger displacement, which Mercedes says will produce more torque than the previous model.
