2010 Mercedes S400 World’s Most Efficient Luxury Car

The Press Release

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

in the luxury segment

* S400 the first series-production Mercedes-Benz car with

* hybrid drive and the first car with a lithium-ion

* Additional safety thanks to the driver assistance systems

* innovative design

After years of the current S-Class, is launching the restyled 2010 in August. With the very technology for even greater as well as trailblazing innovations in and drive technology, the Mercedes-Benz is reasserting its leading position as the innovation platform and benchmark for sedans.

In the 2010 S-Class, has improved the renowned safety even further with a combination of innovative camera and driver assistance systems. include Adaptive Highbeam Lane Keeping Assist and the brake system linked to the regulating radar, which autonomously before an impending collision and acts like an crumple zone. Other in the 2010 S-Class include the ASSIST driver drowsiness and Active Body Control automatic crosswind stabilization.

The new HYBRID is also celebrating its As the first series-production Mercedes-Benz car with hybrid drive, S-Class model is the world’s economical luxury car with a engine. Its estimated combined consumption of 29 miles per gallon a new worldwide benchmark in this segment.

The S400 HYBRID is a milestone on our road towards mobility, says Dr. Dieter Chairman of Daimler AG and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Our first series-production hybrid car exemplifies the long-term, sustainability-oriented strategy of Mercedes-Benz, which has a defined aim: economical and compatible premium automobiles, no compromises in terms of safety, and a superior driving experience. The HYBRID is also a trailblazer energy storage is concerned: the new sedan is the first series car in the world to be equipped with the latest lithium-ion battery In this way the S-Class and the Mercedes-Benz are doing important pioneering for the electrification of the automobile.

The new hybrid model combines a low consumption and a high level of compatibility with superior the internal combustion engine and the module develop a combined of 295 hp, and a combined maximum torque of 284 (The electric motor 20 hp and 118 lb-ft to the powertrain).

With units sold world-wide its launch, the W 221-series S-Class is the most successful luxury and seamlessly continues the success of the flagship model in the Mercedes-Benz Since 1951, when the 220 began the direct lineage of the Mercedes-Benz has delivered around 3.3 passenger cars from model series to customers.

The line-up includes the S400 the 382-hp V8-powered S550 and S550 4MATIC as well as the 518-hp S63 AMG. V12 offerings the 510-hp S600 and the top-of-the-line S65 AMG. The 2010 S-Class be in U.S. showrooms beginning in

Unique combination of driver systems

An absolutely unique of ultra-modern assistance and protection is available for the 2010 S-Class. of these systems are also for the new E-Class, which debuts summer. The new assistance systems the models in the E and S-Class into partners for their driver. The car is to see, feel, respond and act autonomously to prevent accidents or their effects. Mercedes-Benz uses cameras in these — these are able to well ahead, monitor the surroundings and interpret typically situations. One example is the optional Highbeam Assist. This recognizes oncoming or leading and then controls the headlamps to the best possible beam without dazzling other on the road.

The Sindelfingen-based engineers have developed Night View further – Night View PLUS is equipped with a pedestrian detection function: as as the system detects pedestrians of the car, they are highlighted on the to make it easier for the driver to see

Lane Keeping Assist is system that looks for even safer driving. The computer is able to recognize markings by evaluating the contrasting of the road surface and the markings. If the leaves the lane unintentionally, the is warned by short vibrations of the wheel. Unlike conventional of this kind, the Mercedes-Benz is able to evaluate the driver’s as well and can reliably ascertain the car is leaving its lane intentionally or Therefore, there is no warning if the accelerates before overtaking or onto a highway, brakes or enters a curve.

Drowsiness on the basis of more than 70

With the driver drowsiness ATTENTION ASSIST, the 2010 has very sensitive monitors for the level of its driver and can warn in time when they drowsy. This innovative continuously monitors more 70 different parameters. Once the steering angle sensor the steering behavior that indicates the onset of drowsiness, a signal is sounded and ATTENTION Time for a break! appears in the cluster.

Mercedes-Benz has also the long and medium-range radar by Brake Assist PLUS and PLUS adaptive cruise Both systems assist the during emergency braking. If the is distracted and fails to recognize the danger of a rear-end collision, the is able to intervene and brake the independently. For the 2010 S-Class the in Sindelfingen have improved system even further: if the fails to react even an acoustic and visual warning, the is able to activate the maximum pressure around 0.6 seconds what is now recognized as an unavoidable — an emergency braking action can significantly mitigate the severity of the The system therefore acts as like an electronic crumple

Detailed fine-tuning has also the 2010 S-Class better dynamics and agility. This is in measure due to the new electro-hydraulic Direct-Steer where the ratio varies the steering angle.

New: Body Control (ABC) for crosswinds

Mercedes-Benz developers also added a crosswind function to Active Body (ABC) suspension. For this ABC uses the yaw rates and lateral sensors of the Electronic Stability ESP® to vary the wheel distribution via the ABC spring struts, on the direction and intensity of the crosswind. enables the effects of crosswinds to be or reduced to a minimum in the case of gusts.

S400 HYBRID: the most economical gasoline-engined sedan

The 2010 S-Class plays a pioneering role its drive system is concerned: The hybrid concept sets the new for efficient, clean and superior pleasure in all vehicle segments, and is a driving force for the premium of the future, says Dr. Thomas the member of the Daimler AG Executive responsible for corporate research and at Mercedes-Benz Cars.

The new S400 is the first car to be designed on the basis of the intelligent modular concept by Mercedes-Benz to give its customers the hybrid solution for their The S400 HYBRID, which is a technological trendsetter with concept, features all the necessary


* a compact yet powerful motor

* the accompanying operating

* a modern lithium-ion storage with a high capacity.

Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid

The hybrid module combines the functions of an automatic start-stop and energy recuperation. In several this means that the HYBRID sets a new standard in its making it the world’s most luxury sedan with a engine. Dr. Thomas Weber: demonstrates that Mercedes-Benz is to combine sustainable mobility the claim of automotive premium — with vehicles are efficient and environmentally compatible, having to accept compromises in of safety, comfort and superior refinement. At the same time the HYBRID dispels the myth sustainable mobility is only with small cars.

The fuel economy for the S400 is estimated at 29 miles per gallon, a increase over the S550.

figure is accompanied by a truly performance potential: the modified gasoline engine develops 275 hp, the electric motor generates 20 hp and a torque of 118 lb-ft.

The new Mercedes-Benz HYBRID is based on a V6 version of the and features an extensively modified train. This encompasses a development of the 3.5-litre V6 petrol an additional magneto-electric motor, the seven-speed automatic transmission configured for the hybrid module, the operating and control electronics, the and a high-voltage lithium-ion battery.

braking the electric motor as a generator and is able to recover energy by a process known as During this process the motor works together with the engine brake of the combustion engine and the conventional brakes. The recuperated energy is by a compact but efficient lithium-ion in the engine compartment and retrieved required. Major advantages conventional nickel/metal hydride include a higher energy and greater electrical efficiency with more compact and a low battery weight. Thanks to installation in the engine compartment, the capacity and generous interior remain unchanged. The hybrid also has a
