Third hybrid model from Mercedes revealed: S500
|   Saturday, August 24, 2013
Mercedes has just presented the third hybrid model in the S-Class scope as a competent, yet , fast vehicle returning 94.2 mpg with an emission of 69g/km of CO2. It seems that the new car is also the only plug-in model produced by the company so far. The public expects its public, spectacular release to be held by the Frankfurt motor show in September 2013. Eager Mercedes customers must be really excited.

This new, powerful vehicle is equipped with a 329bhp 3.
liter V6 turbocharged engine which has been successfully matched with an 80 kW electric motor. Regarding the emissions, this car is proud to only emit 69g/km of CO2 while returning 94.2mpg. Another great disclosure is that Mercedes S500 Hybrid is can actually complete 18 miles only on electric power, isn't that absolutely amazing?

The torque of 820Nm definitely makes a good impression associated with the incredible diesel engine and the electric motor and helps this vehicle to achieve 62mph in just 5.5 seconds. However, the maximum speed of Mercedes S500 hybrid has been limited to 155mph. This new model is a lot like the previous S400 and S300 BlueTEC except for the fact that the capacity of its batteries has been increased ten times. What is even more, the batteries of the S500 model will be placed externally and will use a hidden loading socket.

The availability of choosing between several modes of hybrid operating – only electric power, normal hybrid, driving charging modes and electric power – will certainly satisfy a wide range of drivers. Of course, there are a lot of other accessories which will be integrated on the new Mercedes S500: regenerative braking system and engine deactivation while the car is coasting. These elements will participate in recharging the set of lithium ion batteries.

A system which is capable of anticipating the energy level of the car has also been included in the S500 model, it will be able to handle the onboard navigation in order to get the vehicle ready for an accurate driving experience for the next five miles. An intelligent feature will be added to this new vehicle so that it will be able to use the energy that is supplied in the batteries in front of a descending region when the batteries are recharged while the car goes down.

As expected, Mercedes S500 has been classified as extremely economical as it will be able to keep the fuel consumption to an average of just 3.2 liters per 100 kilometers. This was, of course, partially achieved because the car will half run on electric power. Yet another novelty would be that the charging time for the hybrid vehicle will be even less than one hour if the fast charging mode will be used or, the classic way, 4.5 hours.

Regarding the price range, there hasn't been yet any official confirmation but it is assumed that it is going to be a quite an affordable, good balanced price/quality for a vehicle in its range.
