The time is now. Mercedes declared the S 580e 4Matic is here at a price tag of $122,500. Increase the $1,200 place charge and purchasers need to shovel more than $123,700 in advance of solutions. That can make the hybrid sedan $1,500 a lot less expensive than the variation with the twin-turbo 4.-liter V8. The hybrid’s much more powerful than that V8 as effectively.

The boast about trunk place on the new auto will come partly from the actuality that the new S-Class’ load place is about a few cubic feet smaller sized than the preceding S-Course trunk, at 12.9 cubic feet, instantly creating space for the battery.
Even so, the 21.5-kWh battery in the new auto is greater and is stated to double the all-electric powered driving assortment.
