The S500 Plug-in Hyrbid has a combined power output of 442 PS.

The S500 plug-in gets its gasoline power from a 3.0-liter bi-turbo V6 engine producing 333 PS (328.3 bhp) and an electric motor churning an additional 116 PS (114.3 bhp). Combined, the luxury car has 442 PS (435.7 bhp) and 650 Nm of torque. The electric motor gets its power from an 8.7 kWh lithium-ion battery mounted in the boot of the car. As a result, boot space has taken a hit from 530 liters to 395 liters.
