Combining the best of both worlds, this new S-Class EQ Power Plug-in hybrid offers excellent performance while keeping emissions at a minimum. The hybrid drive system in the S560e L EQ Power combines the 367hp (270kW) of the V6 combustion engine with an electric output of 90kW. Intelligent technology, courtesy of the third-generation hybrid transmission, makes for smooth gear changes.
Meanwhile, ECO Assist promotes anticipatory, economical driving. The S560e L EQ Power has an all-electric range of around 30 miles. Even though the new lithium-ion battery has an increased capacity of 13.5kWh it is smaller than before providing an increase in boot capacity from 395 to 410 litres. In conjunction with a wallbox charger, the car’s 7.2-kW on-board charger allows fast charging of the battery in just two hours.
