Good morning everyone and happy Friday. The latest news to hit the web regarding the highly anticipated 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class come from an inadvertent admission by Mercedes themselves during a media presentation. What’s the big news? Confirmation of a plug-in hybrid version of the new S-Class.

The media presentation, held in Sindelfingen, Germany, was hosted with the purpose of showing off the new S-Class’ user interface system. Screenshots of the TFT instrument panel showed an “E Drive” mode along with a battery usage gauge. Also shown off during the presentation was a graphic that showed the S-Class drive-train schematic with an electric motor located behind the engine, with a battery pack mounted in the boot.

Not surprising of course, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class hybrid has yet to be officially confirmed and Mercedes will not comment on whether the photos shown during the presentation signify their intent to produce a Hybrid S-Class. According to spokesmen Jerry Stamoulis, until the S-Class’ official debut on May 15, no drive-train information will be revealed. We can say however with pretty good certainty that Mercedes will have a Hybrid S-Class in the 2014 lineup.
