More than a century after Wilhelm and Karl Maybach started their journey into the automotive segment, the brand produced its first plug-in hybrid vehicle, the Mercedes-Maybach S 580 e.
Based on the same platform as the well-known Mercedes-Benz S Class 580 e, the Maybach version came as a statement for future electrification. Thus, customers who wished to use the vehicle in pure electric mode for their urban businesses were finally able to do that. And, as expected, the car came fitted with all the luxurious features they could hope for.
At first sight, the Mercedes-Maybach S 580 e was not too much different from its non-electrified siblings. But a keen eye for detail could notice the blue shades on the headlights. Also, the massive grille with its 27 vertical chromed slats hosted a similar color for the radar. Another detail that differentiated this model from the rest of its stablemates was the charging-port flap on the right-rear quarter panel.
Inside, the automaker installed all the luxurious items it had in its storage. The leather-wrapped cabin welcomed occupants with comfortable individual seats at the back, separated by a center console extended all the way to the dashboard. For the driver and side passenger, Maybach installed luxurious heated and cooled seats, fronting a high-tech dashboard. The carmaker placed a 12.8” OLED display atop the center stack, while the driver enjoyed a 12.3” 3D display for the instrument panel.
But the most essential upgrade for the car was under its skin. The plug-in hybrid system consisted of a three-liter inline-six gasoline engine that produced 367 PS (362 hp) and an electric motor for a total output of 510 PS (503 hp). The carmaker claimed that the battery pack could provide up to 100 km (62 miles) of pure electric drive, and the car could be charged from either an 11 kW wallbox or, as an option, from a 60 kW DC charger.
