According to CarAdvice, the Stuttgart-based company has revealed the future to be introduced hybrid S-Class during a media presentation of the luxury sedan's user interface system.
While showcasing the car's TFT instrument panel, German representatives have exposed screenshots showing an "E drive" display icon along with a battery usage indicator. Moreover, a graphic drivetrain illustration depicted an electric motor sitting behind a conventional engine and a battery pack mounted in the boot.
Until we find out more about this vehicle, or get official confirmation from Mercedes-Benz, we can only review that the S-Class Plug-in Hybrid will be based on the concept already shown at the Frankfurt motor show three years ago. The S500 Hybrid Concept was powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a 45 kW motor and had a fuel efficiency of 3.2 liters/100 km.
We should know more about it on May 15, when the German company will reveal the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class in Hamburg.
