Mercedes could create an electric S-Klasse

Mercedes-Benz is preparing an electric version of S-Klasse, which will be offered only if customers ill want to buy it.

Thomas Weber, Technical Director at Mercedes-Benz, recently said that they have been studying the possibility of introducing an electric version of S-Klasse. Together with his colleagues, Weber is working on a 100% electric S-Klasse, which will be introduced only if customers will demand it.

Weber said that the change of attitude of the premium manufacturer with the highest CO2 emissions will be made only at the clients’ desire. Until then, the brand’s models will get a “hybridization” to reduce CO2 emissions. As S-Klasse was the first hybrid model in the range (version S400 BlueHybrid), the flagship of the Germans will be the first electric model, when a sufficient number of customers will want this.

Rival manufacturers have applied both downsizing campaigns, as well as a series of technologies designed to reduce the carbon footprint for these models. For example, BMW has introduced EfficientDynamics technology in the F01 Series 7 range and reduced carbon emissions by minimizing the energy consumption of the propellers.

In addition, there is also a hybrid version of the Series7, with several diesel engines. Gasoline engines have also decreased in fuel requirements, but not in performance or dynamic behavior.

Audi have applied a similar strategy in the A8 range, with a hybrid model in the works. Like BMW, Audi’s engines were optimized to provide a lower fuel consumption than the previous generation, while the dynamic skills are at a level higher than the previous generation.

Mercedes-Benz has applied a policy of downsizing. In addition, they launched the first luxury sedan with a diesel engine with four cylinders, a first in the segment.

If the Mercedes-Benz electric vehicles would enter the market, the Germans would have a rival for the future electric Rolls-Royce announced by the British manufacturer. The 102 EX sedan is a future projection in terms of luxury environmental transport, with a model for those wealthy enough not to be disturb by the high cost of batteries or the reduced autonomy of a model.
