UK prices for one of the most advanced saloon cars in the world announced today.
In the UK the car will be offered in long wheelbase form and will cost from £87,965 on-the-road and is subject to a BIK rate of just five per cent.
The S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID equipment specifications are based on the conventional S 500 L AMG Line – among the highlights fitted as standard are 19-inch AMG alloy wheels, AMG body styling for the front and rear bumpers, the LED intelligent light system, COMAND Online, noise insulating glass, leather upholstery and the front seat memory package.
Powered by a V6 biturbo petrol engine producing 333 hp and an electric motor developing 116 hp, the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID generates a total of 442 hp and 650 Nm of torque.
Despite this mighty performance, the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID can travel over 20-miles on purely electrical power.
First production of the car starts next month with deliveries in the UK due in late November.
