Mercedes E300 Hybrid 1

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) has been appointed the official transport provider for the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2015 (LIMA’15). The annual event will take place in Langkawi from March 17-21.

MBM’s fleet for LIMA 2015 will be 450 strong, with models ranging from the E250 Avantgarde to the latest E300 Hybrid ferrying guests and delegates. This year’s LIMA show is expected to feature over 500 exhibitors and have an estimated attendance of 168,500 visitors over five days.

“We are proud to be selected for this prestigious internationally acclaimed exhibition. Mercedes-Benz represents the best-of-the-best in technologically innovation and safety. This is what we have in common with LIMA as they showcase the best in maritime and aerospace technology,” said MBM president and CEO Roland Folger.

Launched last month, the Mercedes-Benz E300 BlueTEC Hybrid is the first diesel hybrid to be commercially available in Malaysia. Thanks to excise duty exemptions for CKD hybrids, the RM348,888 W212 variant undercuts the previously baseline E200 but is kitted out like an RM493,888 E400.
