IAA: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid needs just 3 liters of fuel for 100 km

Article by Anita Panait, on September 12, 2013

Looking for a car that genuinely allows a driver to travel 100 kilometers using just three liters of fuel? Then the car you are looking for is the all-new Mercedes-Benz S 500 Plug-in Hybrid, which is called a genuine 3.0 liter car in Germany -- thanks to its fuel consumption number of 94.2 mpg and carbon dioxide emission figure of 69 g/km and fuel efficiency of 94.2 mpg.

The hybrid's 80-kW electric drive with externally rechargeable battery allows one to drive emission-free driving for around 18 miles. The electric drive is paired with a new 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged engine.

Mercedes-Benz S 500 Plug-in Hybrid is the automaker’s third offering in the S-Class Mercedes-Benz hybrid line-up that already includes the S 300 BlueTEC Hybrid and the S 400 Hybrid, the first car to feature a standard-specification hybrid drive system with lithium-ion battery in 2009.

All second-generation hybrid drive systems feature seamless integration into the powertrain, although the combustion engine can be entirely decoupled from the electric motor.  The S 500 Plug-in Hybrid features second-generation recuperative braking system and the anticipatory Intelligent HYBRID energy management system.

The S 500 Plug-in Hybrid also features a new high-voltage lithium-ion battery that has ten times the energy content than the batteries of the other S Class hybrids and could be recharged from an external source with a charging socket located on the right side of the rear bumper.

Through an electric synchronous motor (80 kW/340 Nm), S 500 Plug-in Hybrid can go up to 18 miles on electric power alone.  Mercedes-Benz will showcase the S 500 Plug-in Hybrid at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), and roll it out to the market next year.
