Here is the next S-class drives

Stuttgart, 9. February 2018

Currently, it takes a little bit of fantasy, but rest assured: here are the first spy images of the next Mercedes S-class. The eleventh Generation of the upper-class-seller will come out in 2020 on the market. To the Design nothing Sensible can truly say, except that the basic shape of the previous models is maintained. Presumably the new S will grow-Benz again.

New platform, less weight

That doesn't make the much needed slimming necessarily easier. The use of more Carbon fibre and Aluminium, is likely to help. In addition, the next S-class will use the new rear wheel drive platform MRA, II. The current model (W222) is a revised variant of its predecessor, the W221.

Fully electrified

As regards the motors, is not accurate information is also really possible. With the recent Facelift from April 2017 electrified drives office 48-Volt on-Board network, moved for the first time, discreetly in the S-Benz. This development will be expanded in the successor to W223 sure. The complete electrification of the motor range – whether as a mild-hybrid or Plug-in Hybrid is considered to be. A purely electrical "Standard"S-class we probably won't see that there is finally, the new EQ model number. You can expect quite a large EQS.

How Autonomous it is?

Anyone who knows Mercedes and the S-class in Particular, knows: Autonomous Driving is an extremely high priority. We expect for the 2020s-upper class Level 3 or even Level 4, depending on how far the legislature is until then. For adequate Infotainment and contemporary networking, a fancy tents Version of the (straight in the A-class featured) new IT-system should be used. Further stages of expansion, such as Cabrio, Coupé, long-wheelbase version and Maybach winner of the Nobel version will see each other again. As it is the future of the luxury Roadster SL ordered, remains to be seen.(sw)
