Ahead of its launch in September, new details on the Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid have emerged.

Originally Mercedes anticipated the hybrid would consume 3.0L / 100 km (78.4 mpg US / 94.1 mpg UK), but that figure has been improved, now consuming only 2.8L / 100 km (84 mpg US / 100.8 mpg UK). According to Mercedes, this will enable the massive sedan to become the “first luxury sedan with a certified consumption below three liters per 100 km.”

Mercedes’ electric-only range has increased from 30 km (18.6 miles) to 33 km (20.5 miles) and the 0-100 km/h sprint time has go down from 5.5 to 5.2 seconds.

The Mercedes-Benz S 500 Plug-in Hybrid will be fitted with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine and a 107 bhp (80 kW) electric motor, for a combined maximum output of 435 bhp (325 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque.
