S 580 e Plug-in-Hybrid

December 16, 2021 - The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class not only meets the highest demands in terms of safety, comfort, agility, and design, but also shows partly clear improvements with regard to environmental impacts over the entire lifecycle compared to its predecessor.

The production of the new S 580 e (values combined, weighted according to WLTP: fuel consumption 1.0 – 0.6 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions 23 - 14 g/km, electrical consumption 25.7 - 21.3 kWh/100 km) results in a higher quantity of carbon dioxide emissions than its predecessor. This is mainly due to the larger highvoltage battery and the increased proportion of light alloys in the body shell.

Taking the entire lifecycle into consideration, namely production, operation over 300,000 kilometers and recycling/disposal, the new S 580 e causes around 14.1 (EU electricity mix) resp. 36.2 percent (electricity from hydropower) lower CO₂ emissions than its predecessor.

Steel/ferrous materials account for about 35.5 percent of the vehicle weight in the new S 580 e. This is followed by light alloys with 27.1 percent and the polymer materials with 18.3 percent.

In production, the drive components specific to the S 580 e plug-in hybrid require a greater use of material resources. The importance of the car production process therefore increases compared to conventional combustion engines.

In the new S-Class a total of 202 components plus small parts such as push buttons, plastic nuts and cable fasteners with a total weight of 98.9 kilogrammes can be produced partially from less resource consuming materials.

In floor coverings, a switch was made to a new recycled yarn in tuft velour. This yarn with the brand name ECONYL® consists of regenerated nylon. It is manufactured by recovering nylon waste destined for the landfill, for example old fishing nets and fabric remnants from mills and carpets.

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class has received the Seal of Quality from the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF).

The ECARF Seal of Quality is used by ECARF to designate products that have been scientifically tested and proven to be suitable for allergy sufferers.
