S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID: an unrivalled blend of luxury and efficiency
Unprecedented efficiency high
Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire is delighted to introduce customers to one of the most advanced saloon cars in the world – the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID.
Available to experience now at the group’s Retailers in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertford and Stevenage, the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID takes executive motoring to an unprecedented efficiency high.
Already the benchmark in the large luxury saloon sector, the S-Class is now even more impressive with the arrival of this cutting edge model.
Powered by a V6 biturbo petrol engine producing 333 hp and an electric motor developing 116 hp, the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID generates 650 Nm of torque. Not only does the advanced pairing ensure effortless, swift progress with a 0-62mph time of 5.2 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph, but they also enable the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID to return a staggering 100.9mpg and emit a mere 65g/km of CO2.
Most advanced S-Class model also makes it exempt from road tax
The phenomenal efficiency of the advanced S-Class model also makes it exempt from road tax and qualifies it for a 100 per cent discount on the London Congestion Charge. The S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID can travel over 20 miles on purely electrical power and its 8.7 kWh lithium-ion batteries can be topped using external charging devices such as fast chargers. A full charge on a typical public, three phase power point takes around two hours and the car’s technology even works to identify where it can recuperate power and can even gently advise drivers on the most efficient driving style by sending a pulse through the accelerator.
Available exclusively in long wheelbase format, the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID equipment specifications are based on the conventional S 500 L AMG Line. Highlights of the extensive standard equipment include 19-inch AMG alloy wheels, AMG body styling for the front and rear bumpers, the LED intelligent light system, COMAND Online, noise insulating glass, leather upholstery and the front seat memory package.
The model’s pioneering technology isn’t just limited to its advanced drivetrain either. For example, through the innovative Mercedes Connect me system it’s possible to pre-heat or pre-cool the car ahead of your arrival from a tablet or smartphone. The system can also remotely relay information to the driver when away from the car on the charge status, the predicted range and when the next service is due.
For further details and to arrange a convenient test drive, those interested in the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID are invited to contact their nearest Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire Retailer in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertford or Stevenage.
