Hopefully That Graphic Doesn't Come Standard

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-In Hybrid is coming soon, so why not reveal it in all its glory today?

That's exactly what Mercedes has done.

Consider this the official S500 Plug-In Hybrid reveal.

M-B had planned to debut the plug-in S500 at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but the automaker decided to jump the gun.

Here are the juicy details:

  • Fuel consumption of 3 liters/100 km (78.4 US mpg)
  • Emits only 69 g/km of CO2
  • Turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine rated at 328 hp and 354 pound- feet of torque
  • Electric motor adds 107 hp and 251 pound-feet of torque
  • Top speed 155 mph
  • 0 to 62 mph in 5.5 seconds
  • Electric-only range 18.6 miles
More details will surely come out in September when the S500 plug-in hits the Frankfurt stage.

Prcing?  It's a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, so expect it to be through the roof.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid will arrive at dealerships in 2014.
