2015 Mercedes S500 Plug-in Hybrid is now offered on the UK market with a starting price of 87.965 GBP.
The car will be available only with the long-wheelbase variant and will also be equipped with the AMG Line kit. This adds some AMG accesories, LED automatic headlights, leather upholstery and front seats with memory function.
Being equipped with a plug-in hybrid system, the new Mercedes S500 plug-in Hybrid combines the 333 hp offered by a bi-turbo V6 engine with the 116 hp produced by an electric motor. Together they offer 442 hp and 650 Nm of torque, enough for a 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 5.2 seconds and a limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The 8.7 kWh lithium-ion battery pack can offer a 20 miles or 32 kilometers run just on electricity. After that, the conventional engine starts. Even so, the average consumption in the first 100 kilometers is just 2.8 liters/100 km.
The order book is open, but the 2015 Mercedes S500L Plug-in Hybrid will arrive at the end of this year.
