The German company has officially confirmed the information that has begun work on the next generation of S-Class. The model will be built on a great platform from the future electric vehicle EQ S.

To complete electrification concern Daimler goes in short but convincing steps. The future electric crossover is just an indication of the intention to enter this segment. The main work is carried out through the creation of new power units, including running-in technologies on hybrids.

Thus, the next generation of Mercedes-Benz S-Class is already preparing for release, which was officially confirmed in the company. A feature of the model will be a wide range of hybrid systems, which will later become the basis for the transition to an all-electric sedan EQ S. It is specifically mentioned that the models will be built on different platforms.

 According to preliminary information, the base of the power units will be used new 3.0 – and 2.9-liter engines, as well as a 4.0-liter unit for the “charged” version of AMG. Together with them, electric motors will be installed, which will provide additional power, a great moment, as well as a power reserve of up to 100 km of electricity.

The company also announced a new generation 4Matic all-wheel drive system capable of redistributing all the torque between the axles. It is expected that the new S-Class will use an updated version of the platform MRA.

Meanwhile, the Mercedes-AMG GT R roadster will get an engine for 577 horses. The German insurance company unwittingly declassified the characteristics of a still unreleased roadster.
