Here it comes: Mercedes-Benz S 560 e Plug-In Hybrid with 13.5 kWh battery

The new plug-in hybrid S-Class drives further in electric mode

Mercedes-Benz is introducing the third generation of its S-Class hybrid, the Mercedes-Benz S 560 e, which is available for order from October 10, 2018

The new S 560 e is equipped with a higher capacity battery –13.5 kWh (up 55%) for up to 50 km (31 miles) of all-electric range – thanks to 37 Ah lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt (Li-NMC) cells instead of the previous 22 Ah. The dimensions of the new battery are smaller than those of its predecessor.

The previous generation had 8.7 kWh and 33 km (21 miles) NEDC range or 12 miles (19 km) EPA. The new EPA rating could be around 20 miles with this capacity increase.

Suggested retail price in Germany, excluding 19% VAT, starts from €96,065 (over $111,000).
