Coming in 2012: A 70MPG Plug-In Hybrid Mercedes S-Class
A full-sized luxury sedan capable of sub-6.0 second runs to 62 mph (100 km/h) and fuel economy of 70 mpg or better may seem a little farfetched but it’s a promise Mercedes-Benz would like to deliver in time for its next-generation S-Class.
Due for sale in 2012, the new S-Class sedan will be offered with plug-in hybrid technology, and eventually this option will be offered across the automaker’s fleet.
The information comes from Mercedes-Benz research and development chief Thomas Weber, who explained to Autocar during a recent interview that it “makes a lot of sense to bundle the high-price tech option to the sort of customers willing to pay for this sort of thing.”
