Mercedes-Benz is extending its S-Class lineup for 2015 with a module mixture rendition, joining the S400 hybrid and the S300 BlueTEC . The S550 Module Crossover gimmicks a compelling level of specialized advancements all cooperating to create the most effective driving knowledge while as yet offering all the opulent purchasers anticipate from Mercedes. 

The car utilizes a twin-turbocharged, V-6 motor and a high-voltage, 8.7 kWh lithium-particle battery to spur the auto. A super-minimized electric engine fits set up of the seven-speed programmed's torque converter, taking into consideration simple fitment under the S-Class' floor dish. 

Four commute modes permit the driver to picked between Crossover, E-Mode (electric just, E-Save (less electric, more gas) and Charge (charges the battery while driving). The S550 Module Cross breed likewise utilizes recuperative slowing mechanism to moderate the auto. The sytem attempts to wipe out the perceptible move between the routine brakes and the electric engine in generator mode. 

On top of recuperative braking, the S550 Plug-in Hybrid  satisfies its name by offering a repository in the back guard for charging from a force source. Also, Mercedes is working nearby BMW on a remote, inductive charging framework. Mercedes hasn't uncovered when inductive accusing of be accessible, yet expect it later on.Things are pretty standard here, as the S550 Plug-in Hybrid shares the same architecture and design as the conventional S-Class sedans. The only major difference lies on the right side of the rear bumper, where Mercedes located the charging port. A locking mechanism keeps the charging cord secured to the vehicle during operation, preventing it from theft or unintentional unplugging.

Looking like a conventional S-Class isn’t a bad thing. Stretching 206.5 inches in length, the S-Class is a commanding vehicle. It’s large grille and LED headlights give it an intimidating appearance. Things get a little swoopy out back, with the C-pillars rolling into the truck lid. The line continues past the taillights and into the rear bumper.

Besides the small door for the charging port, the only identifier of this car’s electrification is the “PLUG IN HYBRID” badge running across its trunk.The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has put other automakers on notice with its forward-thinking design. A massive digital dashboard shows nearly every conceivable bit of information about the car while diamond-pattern quilting graces the heated and cooled power seats.

Perhaps the most innovative feature the S550 Plug-in Hybrid offers is the Pre-Entry Climate Control system. Program the car with your next departure time, and it will begin cooling off the interior using only electricity. That’s thanks to the HVAC system being fully electric. Even the seats will heat or cool to your set preference. On cold days, the steering wheel and armrests will preheat as well.

Rear-seat comfort is at a premium, with the S550 offering tons of leg, hip, shoulder, and headroom for even the tallest passengers.Here’s where things get interesting. The S550 Plug-in Hybrid carries a 3.0-liter V-6 sporting two turbochargers. By itself, it makes 329 horsepower between 5,250 and 6,000 rpm and 354 pound-feet of torque between 1,600 and 4,000 revs. Add to that the 85 kW electric motor that’s good for an extra 114 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque. With gas and electric combined, the S550 Plug-in Hybrid generates 436 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.

At full grip, the Benz will hit 62 mph in only 5.2 seconds on some way or another to a 130-mph top velocity. On the expressway, the S550 Hybrid can journey up to 87 mph in electric mode and gets a 2.8 l/100km (84 mpg U.S.) rating on the EU's joined cycle. That number will probably fall in the EPA's testing.

Completely charged, the S550 Plug in Hybrid Mixture offers a 20-mile, completely electric reach. Assisting with that range is Mercedes' shrewd working procedure. The auto attempts to guarantee the battery is completely charged before entering a urban zone. This methodology takes into account the most extreme separation conceivable in full electric mode. This framework is particularly convenient considering the few places in Europe where gasoline motors are confined in urban territories.
