Released some information about the engines of the future S-class. The most powerful sedan will be hybrid and impressively fast.
On the new generation of the flagship sedan Mercedes-Benz sold so many new technologies that the company is forced to declassify the future novelty in parts, consistently talking about the different innovations.
We know, for example, the multimedia capacity of a sedan, about how safe it is and how will take care of the comfort of its passengers. But Mercedes-Benz has not shared the main – what is the engine range has prepared for chetyrehdverki. However, some items on this topic was published by our colleagues from the publication Car, which already had time to get acquainted with a luxury sedan better.
According to the publication, to equip the new generation Mercedes-Benz S-class will be one of the seven power plants. There are two diesel versions S350d and S400d and two six-cylinder diesel motor (such as a sedan will get the indexes, S450 and S500, and the last engine will be able to develop 460 HP and 520 Nm of torque) and petrol V8 for performance S580.
As we already know, a 12-cylinder engine in the Mercedes-Benz decided to keep only version chetyrehdverki from Maybach and he will get more electrical add-on. But the most powerful and fastest sedan – the one that was previously called the S63 AMG will be, according to preliminary data, a full hybrid. To imply it will be the letter “e” in the index.
It is expected that it will be equipped with a pair of 600-horsepower V8 volume of 4.0 l and 200-horsepower electric motor and a set of the first 100 km/h is the flagship will take just 3.5 seconds. Thus, the monumental sedan will be significantly faster than the new Porsche 911 Carrera and only slightly lose the Lamborghini Huracan.
“Civilian” versions of the new S-class Mercedes-Benz plans to declassify on September 2, and shortly after the premiere to bring to market. But the debut of “charged” Mercedes-AMG S 63e will have to wait until next year.
