2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-In Hybrid goes online before the Frankfurt presentation

Hybrid cars are something that holds the headlines lately. There is an entire trend of creating eco-friendly cars in the auto field. There are several reasons why interest in these vehicles convinced even the biggest car producers to enter the trend. Of course, being one of the most complex companies in the world, Mercedes is not an exception to the rule. Although people appreciate the German brand mostly for its powerful engines and then for the stylish looks, the company sticks mulish to the idea of manufacturing eco- friendly vehicles.  Frankfurt Motor Show will be the host of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-In Hybrid which, however, has just been revealed online before the event.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-In Hybrid is powered by a new turbocharged V6 3.0-liter gasoline engine generating 328 bhp (245 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. It works mated to an electric motor that provides additional 107 bhp (80 kW) and 340 Nm (251 lb-ft). This allows a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in just 5.5 seconds and a maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Electric power only will be enough for the vehicle to run about 18.6 miles (30 km). To sum up the fuel consumption, the car has 3 liters / 100 km (78.4 mpg US or 94.1 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 69 g/km.

With a single press of a button, the fortunate owner can choose the driving modes of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-In Hybrid. The options are driving in Hybrid, E-Mode (electric only), E-Save (fully charged battery is kept intact until needed) and Charge(the battery is charged while driving) modes. The third hybrid model of the new S-Class, the S 500 Plug-In hybrid, sets new benchmarks with regard to efficiency as well as drive-system and climate comfort. The hybrid pioneer in the luxury segment will most likely reach dealerships in 2014. Let’s only hope it has the wanted effect on the public.
