In September 2017, at a motor show in Frankfurt, Mercedes introduced a hybrid modification of the updated S-Class W222. The resulting S 560 e modification will replace the S 500 e version in the model range. The power plant of the new Mercedes S 560 e 2017-2018 consists of a 3.0-liter “six” with a power of 367 hp, a 122-horsepower electric motor and a nine-band automatic. This filling allows the hybrid sedan to accelerate from one place to a hundred in 5.0 seconds, and its maximum speed is limited to 250 km/h. The hybrid S 560 e requires only 2.1 liters of fuel per 100 km of run, which is 0.7 liters less than its predecessor. If necessary, the sedan can only move on electric traction, receiving energy from lithium-manganese batteries, developed by a subsidiary of the concern Daimler – Deutsche Accumotive. The battery capacity is 13.5 kWh. With its help four-door can travel up to 50 km in fully electric mode. A set of these batteries is slightly smaller, which allowed German specialists to increase the volume of the trunk of the Mercedes-Benz S 560 e to 410 liters (+ 15). In the base the car has a climate system with the possibility of preliminary temperature setting by means of the Mercedes me service, chairs with heating and ventilation, as well as heating the steering wheel and armrests on the center console and doors. Plus, the new model Mercedes S 560 e 2018 is equipped with the ECO Assist system, which analyzes data from navigation, the system of recognition of road signs and radar, offering the driver tips for achieving a more economical driving style.
