A- Class plug in hybrid to debut in 2019

According to a report from Autocar UK, the A-Class will be receiving a PHEV variant next year. This model is likely going to wear MB news EQ badge and will rival the Audi A3 e-tron. Leaked internal documents have indicated that the car will be named the A 250 e 4matic and will be powered by a 1.3l four cylinder petrol (165hp) and a 67kW (90hp) electric motor. As the name suggests it will have standard AWD, with the combustion engine powering the front wheel and the electric motor powering the rear.

At this rate they are going to either leave no room for meaningful CLA updates or see that both models can exist sharing similar features.
Still, I have a hard time figuring out these model overlaps.

Yeah personally I think MB may have gone a little overboard with all the premium features they've put on the A-Class, pulling the vast majority of them directly from the S-Class. They obviously think this new entry level model is going to bring a lot of newcomers to the brand.

Seems that these days almost anything is possible and what could happen is eventually the CLA stops selling in markets like the U.S. to make way for a stronger and more market-specific product, the A-Class.
However that would be more part of a longer term strategy.
