Mercedes-Benz S500

Category: Mercedes | Author: | Date: September 30th, 2013

Mercedes will launch the S500 plug-in hybrid, the third hybrid version of Benz’s sedan. The Mercedes S500 is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 and an electric motor that produces 329 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque.

The electric motor makes 107 horses and 251 lb-ft. The plug-in luxury sedan offers a claimed 0-to-60-mph time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph. The car carries a fuel-economy rating in the European cycle of 94 mpg.

There are four modes: Hybrid, the car chooses the most efficient propulsion strategy and uses the gasoline engine only rarely for recharging purposes , Save-Mode battery charge level is kept high for use in urban areas that give congestion-tax breaks to EVs and plug-ins, E-Mode, and Charge Charge mode forcibly charges the battery while driving, which is inefficient, but more convenient than pulling over and plugging in. The S500 plug-in hybrid can also decouple the electric bits from the combustion engine and “sail” on electrons.

When the car is driving on electric power, the accelerator pedal provides feedback before switching on the combustion engine.

Surely its place is not on our normal roads, simply because the car itself would be in the danger of dying out of boredom. And you’d understand why immediately after you’d find out that the V8 6.3 liter (it’s possible to be upgraded, in the future to a 5.5 litre) has a base of 622 horsepower at 7400 rpm, maximum engine speed being a staggering 8.000 rpm (the car reaches 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds).
