Mercedes-Benz will be launching ten new Plug-In Hybrid models until 2017 - on average one new model with this high-tech hybrid drive every four months. After the successful launch of the S 500 PLUG-IN HYBRID, this month will see the
C 350 e, the second model to feature the progressive drive concept, find its way to dealerships. And what might happen next with the strategic hybrid initiative has just been demonstrated by the Concept V-ision e study at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Mercedes S Class Plug-In Hybrid system is based on the company's modular parallel hybrid system. The common system-specific feature is the additional clutch integrated between the combustion engine and the electric motor. On the one hand this decouples the combustion engine during purely electric operation, while on the other it allows the vehicle to use the combustion engine to move off, drawing on the performance of a wet start-up clutch.
Thanks to Mercedes S Class "Intelligent Drive", vehicles from Mercedes-Benz are already able to detect many hazardous situations in road traffic and react as the situation demands. Mercedes S Class COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST is on board as standard from the A to the S-Class, for example. This radar-based assistance system warns the driver when a risk of collision arises. And the more advanced Mercedes S Class COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS system, becoming available over all models from Mercedes-Benz, is even able to carry out autonomous braking: if the driver fails to act when a risk of collision is detected, despite the warning lamp in the instrument cluster and the intermittent acoustic alert, the Mercedes S Class system will automatically trigger braking.
Beyond this, from the C-Class through to the Mercedes S Class there are already Mercedes-Benz models driving semi-autonomously on public roads today, equipped with features such as Mercedes S Class DISTRONIC PLUS with Mercedes S Class Steering Assist and the Mercedes S Class Stop&Go Pilot for semi-autonomous traffic jam following. Active Mercedes S Class Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC allows automated parking with active steering and brake control in both parallel and end-on spaces.
With its autonomously driving research vehicle F 015 Luxury in Motion, Mercedes-Benz provides an idea of what form "Intelligent Drive" might take in the future. The car's role is evolving from merely a means of transport towards that of a comfortable retreat, too. Drivers can choose at any time whether they wish to drive themselves, with support of intelligent systems or whether the car is to take them to their destination in autonomous mode.
Time spent in the car thus acquires a totally new quality – as a result of the freedom to concern oneself with matters other than steering, accelerating and braking.
The Mercedes S Class W222 is the current version of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the successor of the Mercedes S Class W221. The Mercedes S Class W222, designed during 2009 by Robert Lešnik, has a similar design theme to the CLA-Class and Pre-Facelifted E-Class (W212).
In Europe, sales of the Mercedes S 400 Hybrid, Mercedes S 350 BlueTEC, Mercedes S 350 BlueTEC Hybrid, and Mercedes S 500 began in September 2013. US sales of the Mercedes S 550 also began in September; the Mercedes 4Matic four-wheel drive model went on sale in November, 2013. Additional models, including Mercedes V12 models and those from Mercedes AMG are expected in 2014.
An autonomous car, also known as a driverless car, self-driving car and robotic car, is an automated or autonomous vehicle capable of fulfilling the main transportation capabilities of a traditional car. As an autonomous vehicle, it is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. Robotic cars exist mainly as prototypes and demonstration systems. As of 2014, the only self-driving vehicles that are commercially available are open-air shuttles for pedestrian zones that operate at 12.5 miles per hour (20.1 km/h).
