2010 Mercedes Benz

It’s really no surprise an automaker with the technological of Mercedes-Benz has finally come up a car featuring a hybrid gasoline-electric but what is notable is that the vehicle is the top-of-the-line S-Class

Mercedes-Benz reasons that at the flagship end of the range that economy gains can have the effect, even though the big V-8 and models from the Stuttgart have been getting on fuel by the year. And of course, observers will conclude what the company can do at the top of the lineup, can certainly achieve lower when the time comes. wanted to kill forever the that hybrid drivetrains are the province of small cars. As who’s surveyed the market know, the most obvious really only) competitor for model is the hybrid version of the big LS.

As might be expected from the drivetrain in this exciting new car has technology that places engineering elements ahead of experienced hybrid-builders like Lexus, Honda, GM and Ford.

All the cars are being upgraded and for 2010, incidentally, with enhancements, engineering upgrades and more features for comfort, and convenience.

The S400, claimed by M-B to be world’s most efficient sedan with a gasoline uses a 3.5-litre V-6 as the heart of the and it’s aided by a 15 kilowatt motor. The gas engine produces and the electric motor 20-horsepower, up to the car’s overall 299-horsepower. As other hybrids, the electric adds more torque you might imagine because all such power units, the are noticeable right from the go. With the electric motor, you know you’ve got a little torque on hand. The electric is an amazingly compact unit and at one out of the vehicle, it’s hard to it adds a full 20-horsepower.

The result of all this technical is an amazing all- round economy figure as low as 7.9-litres/100 km plus a similarly surprising CO2 figure of just 186-189-grams per Remember that this is a very luxurious, fully- automobile with nothing in the comfort, safety and convenience Transmission, incidentally, is a very and seamless 7-speed automatic.

the most impressive feature of new Mercedes drivetrain is its lithium-ion a pioneering move for the company and the of technology that’s been over many years. The is not one of those trunk-filling contraptions gotten used to in some — it’s a very unit hardly bigger a shoe box. It’s so it actually sits in the engine encased in its high-strength steel As a result, there’s no sacrifice of space at all — you get the same as you would in a non-hybrid S-Class. a huge step forward in the business as far as hybrids (and electric cars) are concerned. It be very easy to use this in the smallest of cars without any or cargo space sacrifice. the brakes are actuated, the battery the energy for later use.

Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid

My first driving experience this car was in Germany and a run to the black on a variety of roads proved it’s a highly- capable automobile that won’t you pulling over for gas every of hours. For a large car, the (whichever model) handles nimbly indeed and clearly, wants it to feel like a smaller car. Not too many will complain about On the Autobahn, the car is up to 220 km/h very indeed and cruises with smoothness. Top speed is given as 250

The ride is especially worthy of — nothing seems to the silky feeling at all, quite rough roads. kind of ride quality is that has evolved with car for many years and has helped it the world’s top-selling model in its for decades. Up to the 2010 refresh, M-B had over 270,000 S-Class (the current one goes to 2005) worldwide — big for a sedan in this lofty segment.

The cabin is a delight to the with beautiful wood and trim to create an ambiance unmatched in the industry. Its complex of controls seems daunting at sight, but most are pretty intuitive. The car bristles with standout features, some in the basic car, others

I’ll mention one feature gives a hint of the kind of that goes on at Mercedes-Benz days. Called “lane assist” by M-B, this wonder scans the road and when you have wandered a dividing line on the road either a lane marker or one the curb. To warn you that a little off course, the sensors a slight vibration in the steering rather like the effect you get those grooved road featured in some parts of So accurate is the sensor that you get a vibration feel with white marker strips you do with short ones amazing technology! There’s never been a better way of a driver that drowsiness is up on them.

So who’s going to buy this new Mercedes-Benz? For sure, even the don’t have smiles on faces when they top up a car at the local gas station and anyone days will be happy to on fuel with their sedan. And for those who’d to make an “environmental contribution” going to a car they can hardly in and out of, the S400 perfectly fits the For me, I’d buy one for its advanced technology For those who have no interest in or “green cars,” the S-Class continues with a range of from the basic V-8 to the awesome AMG version. More on those in a feature.
