Mercedes Benz Classe S: plug-in hybrid with all-wheel drive trazione integrale

More sustainable mobility and a completely leather-free interior available for the first time for the Mercedes Benz S-Class
First plug-in hybrid in this segment with all-wheel drive can be ordered now. With the zero layer, the most important information is always at the top level of MBUX. Completely leather-free interior available for the first time for the Mercedes Benz Classe S.
A few months ago, the fourth generation of the hybrid drive celebrated its premiere in the new S-Class. Now, for the first time, with the S 580 e 4MATIC (combined fuel consumption, weighted: 1.0-0.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions, weighted: 23-16 g/km; combined electric energy consumption, weighted: 25.5-21.9 kWh/100 km) there is also a plug-in hybrid with all-wheel drive in this segment. The new model is available with a short or long wheelbase and can be ordered immediately at prices starting at 132,125.70 euros.

With an electric drive output of 110 kW/150 hp and a purely electric range of over 100 kilometres (WLTP), the S 580 e 4MATIC can in many circumstances be driven without using the combustion engine. The basis for the hybrid drive system is provided by the six-cylinder in-line M 256 engine with 270 kW/367 hp from the current generation of Mercedes Benz engines. The high power density of the hybrid traction head is achieved using a permanently excited synchronous motor with internal rotor. The peak torque of the electric motor, at 480 Nm, is available right from the start, resulting in high agility when moving off, along with dynamic driving performance. The top speed in the Electric drive program is 140 km/h, after which the speed is softly limited. The high-voltage battery is now even better integrated than in the predecessor model: the luggage compartment no longer has a step and offers a through-loading facility.
An 11 kW charger is on board as standard for three-phase charging from the AC mains network. A 60 kW DC charger is available for fast charging with direct current. Even an empty battery can be fully charged in around 30 minutes.

In the electric luxury saloon EQS, Mercedes Benz has taken MBUX operation to a new level. In future, drivers of a Mercedes Benz or Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will also benefit from the latest version of this adaptive system: with the zero-layer design, the user does not have to scroll through submenus or give voice commands. The most important applications according to the situation and context are visible on the top level in the direct field of vision.
With adaptive software, the display and operating concept adapts completely to its user and makes personalised suggestions for numerous infotainment, comfort and vehicle functions. This relieves the driver of quite a number of operating steps. More than 20 functions – from Energizing Comfort to birthday reminders and suggestions for the to-do list – are automatically offered, with the help of artificial intelligence, when they are relevant to the customer.

The new label meets customers' desire for more individuality. Selected materials, which are predominantly handcrafted, exclusive paintwork options and high-quality finishes in the interior offer a wide range of choices. For the Mercedes Benz S-Class with short or long wheelbase, a completely leather-free interior is available for all markets for the first time (price on request). The seats in this case are upholstered in fabric. Door trim, instrument panel, centre console and steering wheel rim are in Artico man-made leather. The impact absorber in the middle of the steering wheel is also completely vegan. With the option of a vegan interior ex factory, Mercedes Benz is offering customers the greatest possible freedom of choice: they can order an interior entirely according to their own wishes, ideas and values. The company's claim to offer sustainable mobility also includes the conservation of resources and the use of recycled materials wherever possible. Those who opt for genuine leather receive a material that is also characterised by sustainability along the entire supply chain
