Mercedes-Benz hasn’t made a great deal hay with its EQ Electricity line of plug-in hybrid powertrains in the U.S. sector, most a short while ago lobbing batteries at the brief-lived GLC 350e and the S 560e and introducing the 2024 GLE 400e 4Matic. The twin-energy motivations are bigger offers in other markets, hence the introduction of the Mercedes-Maybach S 580e. Maybach’s initial PHEV is the rebranded and extra deluxe edition of the Mercedes-Benz S 580e that released in July 2021. As with the earlier auto, the telltale is the demand port on the driver’s side rear fender. You would need to know your S-Lessons very well, due to the fact the charge port mirrors the fuel filler door on the passenger’s side rear fender.
The superluxe sedan commences the upscale brand’s route to electrification, the 1st battery-electrical Maybach thanks late this year or early subsequent. As a little bit of badge engineering, we are common with the specs. There is certainly a turbocharged 3.-liter inline six under the hood that by by itself makes 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The electric powered sidekick is a one e-motor creating 148 hp and 325 lb-ft, creating the blended powertrain rating 503 hp and 553 lb-ft. The around 5,250-pound four-door gets from zero to 62 miles for each hour in 5.1 seconds and can access a leading speed of 155 miles per hour when utilizing both of those the ICE and electrical hearts. In pure electric powered manner, the 28-kWh battery pack can deliver 62 miles of silent heading and arrive at a leading pace of 87 mph. It truly is feasible to refill the pack in 30 minutes at a 60-kW DC charger, otherwise, the onboard 11-kW onboard charger have to suffice.
There is only a rear-push model for now. Even so, because Mercedes launched the S 580e 4Matic five months immediately after the pusher edition of that motor vehicle, it makes sense to imagine the Maybach S 580e 4Matic is not considerably away. Considering the fact that we nonetheless you should not have the hybrid S-Class, even though, the possibilities of us having this look distant.
