The Mercedes S500e has to be one of the poshest plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) on the market if not, at the time of writing THE most environmentally conscious mainstream luxury car available (leaving aside models like the Teslas of this world). All-electric range is not bad for a car of this size at about 30 miles. But then as you’d expect from sophisticated package like this, the V6 petrol engine takes up a lot of the charging duties as you drive. We believe the battery pack capability will increase over the next year, perhaps allowing all-electric driving for 60 miles between charges. However, for the moment this is a great package for anyone seeking a high-spec vehicle which can arguably also help to save the planet.
