Reports state that China will be the first market for the Maybach S580e, followed by Thailand, Europe and then other international markets.
Maybach, the more premium sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz, has just unveiled its first plug-in hybrid model in the form of the S580e.
The new Mercedes-Maybach S580e carries forward a design similar to the standard models, with very few discreet changes. This includes a hidden charger port door on the left side, blue accents in the headlights and a battery charging indicator on the instrument cluster. Maybach hasn’t revealed any other changes made to the plug-in hybrid variant. The luxury sedan is said to carry forward the features, tech and opulence from the standard trims.
The powertrain on the Mercedes-Maybach S580e comes in the form of a 3.0-litre inline-6 cylinder petrol engine producing 367 BHP and 500 Nm. This is mated to an electric motor which churns out 150 BHP and 440 Nm, translating to a combined power and torque output of 510 BHP and 750 Nm, respectively. Maybach claims the S580e is capable of reaching a top speed of 250 km/h and sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds.
The Maybach S580e comes with a 28 kWh battery pack, allowing for an electric-only range of 100 km (WLTP cycle). The sedan comes standard with a 11 kW charger, with DC fast charging capabilities of up to 60 kW. The fast charger allows the batteries on the S580e charge from 0 – 100% in just 30 minutes.
Reports state that China will be the first market for the Maybach S580e, followed by Thailand, Europe and then other international markets. Prices for the luxury plug-in hybrid sedan will be announced closer to the date of launch.
