Report: Mercedes-Benz to Launch a F125!-Inspired S-Class EV?

Electric Car

Mercedes wants to incorporate technology from the F125! Concept into their S-Class by 2020.

The Mercedes-Benz F125! Concept seen at the Frankfurt Auto Show last month may be coming sooner than you might think. The German automaker's S-Class is a big, bulky lineup of cars that may not fit into this tightly-regulated-emissions-levels world we are currently finding ourselves in, however borrowing some technology form the F125 could give the old range some new game.

Daimler AG (Merc's parent co.) R&D head Thomas Weber recently told AutomotiveNews "This is a visionary outlook that's the direction we have to go with large cars. The legendary S-Class will continue into the future." They plan to use some combination of the revolutionary concept's new technology, like the computer-assisted driving, advanced telematics and hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain to give the S-Class some new life. The F125! Also uses another unproven method of power - a lithium-sulfur battery. Weber continued: "The most important key figure was 1,000, a range up to 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) completely emissions free.

That's what we think will be necessary in 2025." As the U.S. and EU implement tighter controls on emissions, the time is right for Mercedes-Benz to implement new technology into their large S-Class lineup if they want to keep them moving forward into the future. A new S-Class is expected to arrive around 2020-2025.
