Mercedes-Benz S 500 plug-in hybrid priced from £87,965

The new Mercedes-Benz S 500 plug-in hybrid that is now available to order, with prices starting from £87,965. The S 500 plug-in hybrid is also subject to five per cent BIK rate, exempt from road tax and 100 per cent discount on the London Congestion Charge.

The S 500 plug-in hybrid is based on the standard S 500 L AMG Line with AMG style bumpers, LED intelligent light system, standard 19-inch alloys, noise insulating glass and front seat memory package.

What really gets most people going is under the bonnet. Power comes from a 333bhp 3.0–litre V6 biturbo petrol engine and an electric motor producing 116bhp, for a combined output of 442bhp and 650Nm of torque.

As a result the S 500 plug-in hybrid accelerates from 0-62mph in just 5.2 seconds before topping out at an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. In purely EV mode the range is 20 miles and average fuel economy is a very impressive 100.9mpg with CO2 emissions of just 65 g/km.

Production will start next month with first cars arriving in UK in late November.
