New hybrid can drive 30 km on electricity alone

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its third hybrid version of the new S-Class called the S 500 plug-in hybrid. Mercedes says that the hybrid sets new benchmarks for efficiency, drive-system and climate comfort. The vehicle produces only 3 L/100km of emissions. The vehicle features an 80kW electric drive with an externally rechargeable battery.

The battery pack allows the vehicle to drive 30 km on electricity alone. The hybrid system is combined with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 engine. The official debut for the car will be at the Frankfurt Motor Show and it will hit the market next year.

The S 500 uses a regenerative braking system and anticipatory intelligent hybrid energy management. Power output for the gasoline engine is 245 kW in addition to the 80Kw electric motor. Torque output is 480 Nm for the gasoline engine and 340 Nm for the electric engine.
