New Mercedes S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID

The hybrid model of the new S-Class, the S 500 HYBRID, sets new benchmarks regard to efficiency as well as and climate comfort. With 69 g CO2 per (3 litres/100 km) the S-Class sets a new for luxury saloons that a few years ago was thought virtually The 80-kW electric drive externally rechargeable battery emission-free driving for about 30 km

It is combined with the new 3.0-litre V6 engine. Mercedes-Benz will the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID at the Frankfurt Show (IAA). The market will be next year.

The S 400 was the first in the world to feature a hybrid drive system lithium-ion battery in 2009. the new S-Class Mercedes-Benz expands the line-up in this model to three models: the S 400 HYBRID, S 300 HYBRID and S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID. All hybrid drive systems the seamless integration into the The combustion engine can be completely from the electric motor.

Further features are the second-generation braking system and the anticipatory HYBRID energy management

#8220;With the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID sets another milestone on the to emission-free mobility on the basis of our hybrid matrix#8221;, explains Dr Thomas Weber, responsible on the Board of Management for Group and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Engineering. #8220;In this way the turns into a genuine car with generous space and drive-system comfort.#8221;

While the of the S 400 HYBRID and S 300 BlueTEC HYBRID as hybrids are charged during or coasting or by the combustion engine, the new lithium-ion battery of the S 500 PLUG-IN has ten times the energy content and the option of being recharged an external source with a socket located on the right of the rear bumper. With the of the electric synchronous motor (80 Nm) the S-Class can thus drive for up to 30 kilometres on electric power

Four hybrid operating can be selected at the push of a button:


E-MODE: electric only

E-SAVE: fully battery is reserved to be able to on electric power alone

CHARGE: battery is charged driving

Under the conditions by the certification rules the S-Class as a hybrid generates 69 g CO2 per kilometre. consumption equivalent to 3 litres per 100 the S-Class sets a new benchmark for saloons that just a few ago was thought virtually impossible. It these top values without in power, passenger comfort or range and offers a high of climate comfort thanks to the climate control functions.

The important benchmark data of the S 500 HYBRID:

Power output of 245 kW of the engine plus 80-kW motor and torque of 480 Nm of the combustion plus 340 Nm of the electric motor

consumption (NEDC) 69 g CO2/km l/100 km)

Operating range on power alone about 30 km

Top 250 km/h, 0-100 km/h in 5.5

Intelligent HYBRID: anticipatory management system

The second-generation hybrids feature an anticipatory management system and thereby energy efficiency. The operating of the hybrid drive system not accounts for the current driving and driver input, but also to the likely route (inclines, stretches, bends or speed for the next eight kilometres. HYBRID uses the navigation from COMAND Online to the charging and discharging of the high-voltage

The goal is, for example, to use the energy of the battery for propulsion ahead of a stretch in order to recharge it going downhill using

Recuperative braking system: the motor as alternator

The largest for lowering the energy consumption of drive systems lies in energy recovery during and braking. Upon depressing the pedal the deceleration is initially by the electric motor and not by the disc The new S-Class is the first to use a recuperative system (RBS) of the second

It ensures an unnoticeable overlapping of the mechanical brakes and the electric performance of the electric motor in mode.

The driver#8217;s desired power is recorded by a pedal-travel The deceleration is dependent on the driving and is split into a recuperative portion and a portion to be supplied by the brakes. The brake pressure on the axle is controlled by the RBS dependent on the recuperation potential of the powertrain.

In addition, the combustion engine is off any time the vehicle is coasting and its torque when rolling is by the electric motor as recuperation However, without depressing the pedal no additional deceleration is provided for charging the battery and the can #8220;sail#8221;. The combustion engine is to be for charging the battery as little as and only at suitable and most operating points.

Hybrid in the luxury segment

The world#8217;s standard-specification hybrid drive lithium-ion battery debuted at as early as 2009: the S 400 HYBRID was the fuel-efficient petrol-powered luxury for a long time. And the most hybrid in its segment: some buyers worldwide opted for the S 400

With the new S-Class Mercedes-Benz now its comprehensive hybrid offensive. In the S 400 and S 300 BlueTEC HYBRID there are two hybrids of the new S-Class to choose

The new S 400 HYBRID burns just 6.3 of fuel per 100 kilometres in the NEDC (combined). This represents a by 20 per cent over the predecessor. CO2 of 147 grams per kilometre also a new record in this vehicle

These exemplary figures go in hand with outstanding potential: the petrol engine 225 kW (306 hp), while the motor adds another 20 kW (27 The torque of the combustion engine is 370 Nm 250 Nm from the electric motor.

In the S 300 HYBRID Mercedes-Benz has combined the four-cylinder diesel engine 150 kW (204 hp) with the powerful module developing 20 kW (27 hp). The torque of 500 Nm produced by the combustion is overlaid by the 250 Nm of peak torque by the electric motor. The S 300 BlueTEC makes do with 4.4 litres per 100 km in the cycle (CO2: 115 g/km) and with the criteria for energy class A+.

Consequently Mercedes-Benz over the course of ten years, cut fuel consumption in the 150-kW class by half.
