Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: Mercedes Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid

After the prior online reveal, Mercedes-Benz has officially launched their new S500 hybrid, which this time features a plug-in system and slots above the S400 hybrid.

Under its hood we have the new turbocharged V6 3.0-liter gasoline engine delivering 328 bhp (245 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. Of course, he is not there alone, as his partner is an electric motor that offers an extra 107 bhp (80 kW) and 340 Nm (251 lb-ft).

“With the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID Mercedes-Benz sets another milestone on the road to emission-free mobility on the basis of our modular hybrid matrix”, explains Prof Dr Thomas Weber, responsible on the Daimler Board of Management for Group Research and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Product Engineering. “In this way the S-Class turns into a genuine three-litre car with generous space and superlative drive-system comfort.”

While the batteries of the S 400 Hybrid and S 300 BlueTEC Hybrid as autonomous hybrids are charged during braking or coasting or by the combustion engine, the new high-voltage lithium-ion battery of the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID has ten times the energy content and offers the option of being recharged from an external source with a charging socket located on the right side of the rear bumper.

The S500 hybrid is good for about 30 kilometers on electric power alone and with an average consumption of equivalent to 3 litres per 100 kilometres the S-Class generates 69 g CO2 per kilometre. All the while still offers a solid performance, with 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h.
