What do you think of the A250e hybrid?

What does everyone think of the upcoming A250e plug-in hybrid? I wonder if it will be available in North America along with Europe?

Apparently it "will be powered by the same 1.3-liter turbo gasoline engine on the A200, which delivers 161 horsepower (120 kiloWatts) and 184 pound-feet (250 Newton-meters) torque. However, a gearbox-mounted electric motor will support the setup, adding 101 hp and 221 lb-ft. To withstand the high torque output, the transmission is said to be facilitated by an eight-speed setup found on the GLB-Class SUV.

It will also have an electric range of over 37 miles which is pretty handy.

A GLA Hybrid might be better given all the GLA sales so far which only suggest people want more but aren't seeing it yet from Mercedes.

Yeah I'm surprised a A Class hybrid was announced before a GLA hybrid. You'd think it would be the other away around.

MB has so much overlap going on that it doesn't matter much.

My guess is before the year is out, we'll hear about a hybrid GLA which is likely to get the same hybrid configuration as the A-Class.
