Hands-on review: Mercedes-Benz GLE 500e, Merc's new plug-in monster

Merc's first hybrid SUV can propel the family from 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds, as well as return a budget-pleasing 76.4mpg

Leon Poultney

Leon has been writing about automotive and consumer tech for longer than he cares to divulge. When he’s not testing the latest fitness wearable and action camera, he’s out in a shed fawning over his motorcycles or trying not to kill himself on a mountain bike/surfboard/other extreme thing. He's also a man who knows his tools, and he's provided much of T3's drills coverage over the years, all without injuring himself.
