Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG, the renowned German automobile firm, has rolled out the all new S-Class, a vehicle described as a luxury in style.
According to the Chairman of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG, Ola Källenius, “The S-Class is the world’s best-selling luxury saloon. With the latest generation we want to offer our customers innovation, safety, comfort and quality as never before.”
“The new S-Class underpins our claim to produce the best automobile in the world,” said Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG.
He is responsible for Daimler Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars COO.
“This is where covetable luxury meets the greatest possible safety and highest level of comfort.”
The new S-Class has just been unveiled for orders in Germany since mid-September 2020, and will be in the dealerships in December 2020, the company said.
The six-cylinder in-line petrol and diesel engines in various output classes are the first engine variants for the new S-Class.
It is mounted with a V8 engine with an integrated starter-generator (ISG). However, a 48-volt onboard electrical system will be available soon.
A plug-in hybrid with an all-electric range of around 100 kilometres will follow in 2021, the manufacturer said.
Here’s more to this luxury on wheels!
Innovation: The S-Class stands for the fascination of Mercedes-Benz: legendary and traditional engineering expertise defines the luxury segment in the automobile industry.
The new S-Class can be experienced with all the senses – seeing, feeling, hearing and smelling – while offering numerous innovations in the areas of driver assistance, protection and interaction.
Mercedes-Benz is shaping the next generation of individual mobility for our times with innovations that place the focus on people.
The new S-Class uses digitisation for a car that responds empathetically to the needs and wishes of its driver and passengers.
You’re in a lounge: Modern luxury attains the next level in the interior of the S-Class.
The designers have created a feel-good ambience with lounge character marked by elegance, high quality and lightness.
The feel-good aspect goes even deeper: with high ride quality and low noise levels as well as an extensive range of Energizing Comfort programmes, the S-Class looks after the well-being of its passengers.
Experience the MBUX: No other innovation in recent years has so radically changed the operation of a Mercedes-Benz as MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience).
In this second generation in the new S-Class, brilliant displays on up to five large screens, in part with OLED technology, make the control of vehicle and comfort functions even easier
Voice assistant: “Hey Mercedes” is all you need to say and it is even more learn- and dialogue-capable by activation of online services in the Mercedes me App. Certain actions can be performed even without the activation keyword “Hey Mercedes”.
Automated driving: Working from home will soon be mobile – including for people behind the wheel, in the new normal era of COVID-19.
For Mercedes, it is a reality as it brings about the technical realisation and safe operation of an S-Class driving in conditionally automated mode and to meet the exacting legal requirements for what is known as a Level 3 system*.
It is expected that from the second half of 2021 the S-Class will be able to drive in conditionally automated mode with the new DRIVE PILOT, in situations where traffic density is high. By taking pressure off the driver, this allows them to undertake secondary activities such as browsing on the internet or dealing with emails in the In-Car Office, and so win extra time.
Sit, relax: The seats literally invite the occupants to sit down and relax.
The flowing, three-dimensional layer design theme gives an impression of lightness.
Five different rear seat variants make it possible to configure the rear of the S-Class as a working or rest area.
One new feature is the heatable additional cushion for the head restraint, which is available for the two electrically adjustable rear seats.
