Mercedes-Benz launches 2.2-liter hybrid powertrain in flagship car

In its first year the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class line-up features two 2.2-liter hybrid versions, a gasoline model and a diesel variant, which includes the S 400 hybrid, S 500, S 350 BlueTEC and S 300 BlueTEC hybrid.
All models boast class-leading efficiency and up to 20% lower fuel consumption than the outgoing model series. All the engines already meet the requirements of the Euro-6 emissions standard. In addition to this, the S 400 HYBRID and S 350 BlueTEC meet the strict criteria of efficiency class A, while the S 300 BlueTEC HYBRID has an A+ rating.
"The new S-Class achieves consumption and emissions figures that only a few years ago seemed utopian, even for executive cars," says Professor Thomas Weber, member of the Daimler Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Development." Within ten years, Mercedes-Benz has almost halved fuel consumption in the 150kW output category. And this is just the start of our 'Green Leadership' initiative: soon to be followed by the S 500 plug-in hybrid – the first S-Class with a fuel consumption lower than four liters per 100 kilometers." The S-Class line-up therefore includes the full range from petrol and diesel models to gasoline, diesel and plug-in hybrids for the first time.
"Rather than being about safety or aesthetics, power or efficiency, comfort or dynamism, our aspirations were 'the best or nothing' in every respect,” added Dr Dieter Zetsche, chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG
and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “No other car stands for the Mercedes-Benz brand promise more than the S-Class."
