Mercedes electrical S class to show at Frankfurt

Mercedes-Benz is working to develop an electric S-class set, that is to be revealed at the Frankfurt car show in Germany, in September. With the rising, needles to say how much rising, gas prices, hybrid vehicles seem to be the future. Also, environmental issues are starting to put heavy pressure on car makers all over the world to reduce pollution, carbon emissions and even use ecological materials in building cars. But a luxury, Mercedes to run on a petrol-electric engine ?

Mercedes S class

This upcoming S class will see the light of day at the show in Frankfurt, which is sure to be the main car-event of this autumn. Mercedes is obviously trying to stand up to competition, for example the Lexus LS600h,this hybrid-electric limo race for as many buyers as possible has a good part to it. What is this good part? Well, technology that exists for some time now is finally being put to use, and the new ecological S-class is proof.

This hybrid cars will use Mercedes’ fine 3.5-litre V6 petrol technology engine, of a total of 268 hp, but integrated in a system with an additional electric motor, mounted in frond with the automatic gearbox, and connected directly to it. So, to put it in few words, the new pollution-free Mercedes S class is going to burst out at around 300 hp, and reach 62 mph in only 7.5 seconds. Consumption is still pretty high, at approx. 35 mpg.

There are also some rumours that another S-class diesel version will be also launched, with the same low-pollution, as “green” as possible philosophy. The cars will use Bluetec exhaust gas clean-up system, that Mercedes is surely proud of as it won them an award or two. Anyway, the two models are going to make quite an appearance at the Frankurt car show, as this S class and the C class are the only cars made almost entirely of eco material. The S class is supposed to enter production in 2008.
