S 400 HYBRID

Mercedes-Benz has released a short press release about its upcoming S-Class – S 400 Hybrid highlighting the environmentally-friendliness of what is known as the world’s first series production car to feature a hybrid drive system with a lithium-ion battery. Power for the S 400 Hybrid comes from a V6 gasoline engine mated to a compact hybrid module. That allows for a total output of 299-hp with a maximum torque of 284 lb-ft. 0 to 62 mph comes in 7.2 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited). Fuel-economy is estimated at 7.9L per 100 kilometers (30 mpg on U.S. terms). The Mercedes-Benz S 400 Hybrid also features an ECO start/stop system, which automatically switches the engine off when the S-Class comes to a stop. Taking the ‘green’ theme a little further, Mercedes-Benz says that the S 400 Hybrid features a “number of recycled parts and renewable natural materials are used in the production of the S-Class.” 45 of the components of the S 400 Hybrid, such as wiring ducts or underbody panels are made from recycled, high-quality plastics. The Mercedes-Benz S 400 Hybrid is scheduled to go on sale in the U.S. later this year in September. For Hybrid Car accessories go to Juicedhybrid.com
