The 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560e takes everything great about the S-Class and adds a plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
Its 13.5-kWh lithium-nickel-magnanese-cobalt battery mates to a 121-horsepower, 325-pound-foot electric motor to provide up to 25 miles of electric-only cruising.
Along with the electric portion of the drivetrain, there's a 3.0-liter V6 under the hood, putting out 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque on its own.
The S560e will hit 60 mph in a plenty-good 4.9 seconds and keep going until it hits 155 mph.
While the battery has more capacity than in the past, the dimensions of the new battery are actually smaller, allowing the trunk to regain some of the capacity lost to the battery.
MB's new Eco Assist system knows whether it's best to coast without any resistance, or if it's wiser to use brake regeneration to give the battery a bit more juice.
It can tell the driver when to release the accelerator and why it's making that suggestion, whether it's approaching a roundabout or a downhill stretch of road.
As with other plug-in hybrids, the S560e can also condition the interior before anyone enters the car.
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560e will go on sale in the US in mid-2019.
Pricing is still TBD.
