The peeps from the Dutch Auto Blog recently had a Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTec Hybrid Estate on their hands and made one of their usual rather “serious sprinkled with funny bits” reviews.

Seen by many - including official statistics - as the official taxi cab of Germany, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class doesn't try very hard to lose this image in the eyes of Europeans, and we sincerely see nothing wrong with that.

Sure, it might take a while until we see a V8 taxi in Europe, since economical four-cylinder diesels are usually the norm in German taxis.

Coincidentally, the E 300 BlueTec Hybrid also has an economical four-cylinder diesel engine, only that it's made even more economical by pairing it with a 27 hp electric engine, which in turn is connected to a few batteries.

Even if you're like us and Dutch sounds like a language from out of space, the following video has English translation captions so it's all good, don't worry.
