The ML is due to be refreshed in 2016 and the company is expected to include a small number of plug-in hybrid models when the revised versions start to arrive.

Mercedes is expected to launch the trio of plug-in vehicle over the next 18 months starting with the S-Class sometime in the spring of 2015. The C-Class will be next, followed closely by the ML. BMW, Volvo, Mitsubishi and Land Rover are all planning plug-in hybrid SUVs.
