Just a couple of weeks ago, we discussed Mercedes-Benz's plan to retool its popular CL model into a new S-Class coupe. Now we've gotten word that the next-gen S-Class will offer even more features, including a hybrid option on the S-Class sedan. The system will be similar to that shown at Frankfurt last fall in the  Vision S500 Plug-In Hybrid Concept, which paired a 3.5-liter V-6 combustion engine and a lithium-ion battery pack. The hybrid sedan is expected to earn around 70 mpg and hit 60 mph in under six seconds.  For more details, check Viknesh Vijayenthiran's report at MotorAuthority.

  1. Isnt' there already an S class hybrid?

  2. It's been planned for the 2010 model year, though the tech seems to have been tweaked over time: http://blogs.thecarconnection.com/marty-blog/1019925_2009-new-york-auto-show-2010-mercedes-benz-s-class-goes-hybrid
