The plug-in hybrid Mercedes S-550e is a five-person luxury sedan. It teams an 85kW electric motor with a V6 biturbo gas engine for an exceptional 436 hp (combined). An E-BOOST feature lets the electric motor raise total torque up to 479 lb-ft. It can rush from 0 to 60 in just 5.2 seconds, or return up to 63 MPGe on the highway with a fully charged battery. The advanced lithium-ion battery can be charged by the gas engine while driving, at public charging stations, or at home.
2017 Mercedes S550e Plug-in Hybrid offers four drive modes: The intelligent HYBRID mode optimizes use of the gasoline and electric motors for the conditions, terrain and even navigation data about your route. All-electric E-MODE offers up to 12 miles of locally emission-free driving around town, with 479 lb-ft of smooth, instant torque. E-SAVE mode conserves battery power on longer highway trips and CHARGE mode, which maximizes battery replenishment.
