2019 Mercedes-Benz S550 EV

Right now, Mercedes-Benz does not offer any luxury electric vehicles. In fact, it currently doesn’t sell ANY fully-electric vehicles in the United States, unless you count the Smart Fortwo. It does have hybrid options for the E-Class, GLE SUV, and S-Class, but if you take the engines out of them, they will only last a few miles. The S550e, for example, uses an electric motor, but still needs a 3.0L biturbo engine to meet driver’s expectations. We aren’t sure whether to expect a modification of the S550 or something new altogether. Could it be in line with the S600? We could definitely see this happening.
