SPY: The 2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W 222) enters FEP stage no. 2
Through time, we have uncovered a large dose of the secrets of the new S-Class, so there is not much to comment about the new generation of the luxury flagship from Stuttgart. The W 222 is already announced as a major revolution in the automotive industry, as this model will introduce a complete array of technological breakthroughs in the areas of active safety, passenger security, ride management, powering solutions and on-board communication & telematics.
Thomas Weber announces the new S-Class will also premiere the first-ever plug-in hybrid Mercedes-Benz version, most likely inspired from the VISION S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID revealed at IAA Frankfurt in 2009. We think there will be more similar versions and not just one. The entry-level variants, probably powered by low-displacement diesel and petrol units alongside the electric motor, will be able to achieve sub-100 g/km values for CO2 emissions.
