Mercedes-Benz is working on an electric Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
A full electric version of the next Mercedes S-class is not being ruled out, according to the firm’s technical boss, Thomas Weber.
“At the moment, we are looking at customer demand,” he admitted.
The next-generation car will have hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions, though. At the heart of the standard engine range will be Mercedes’ new V6 and V8 MoVe petrol powerplants. Diesel options are likely to include the 201bhp, 369lb ft 2.2-litre, four-cylinder motor from the current S250 CDI, the smallest engine to ever be offered in the S-class.
