Mercedes-Benz S-Class plug-in hybrid follows standard sedan next year – Roadshow

The PHEV should bow with a turbocharged inline-six engine, one e-motor and a 28 kilowatt-hour battery to provide 62 miles of electric

Curated via Twitter from CNET News’s twitter account….

Mercedes-Benz mentioned an S-Class plug-in hybrid variant coming next year and touted a range around 100 kilometers to boot, or roughly 62 miles.

According to the publication, the S580e plug-in hybrid will sport a turbocharged 3. 0-liter inline-six, which makes up the S500’s base powertrain, but a single electric motor and 28 kilowatt-hour battery will augment things.

Mercedes-Benz USA did not confirm the name or associated reported details, but curiously included dozens of photos of the sedan with the standard S-Class’ announcement.

A Mercedes-Benz USA spokesperson told Roadshow the company hasn’t "communicated anything regarding S-Class plug-in hybrids variants for the US at this time".
