Wondering about the next Mercedes S-Class? Unfortunately, I don’t know the next S-Class, but I know the S-Class for 2025! Here is the technical information!
It will powered by four electric engines, no internal combustion (unfortunately) and generating total of 231 PS sustained and 313 PS peak. I don’t know the why two engine output is given. Acceleration is 4.9 seconds to 100 kph (62 mph), thanks to lightweight structure that is only 1760kg. Also, it is capable of accelerating from 80 to 120 kph (50 – 75 mph) in 3.2 seconds! As the electric engines need electricity, it is produced by hydrogen. And hydrogen consumption is 0.79kg/100 km and CO2 is zero! Estimated range is 1000 km (620 miles). I hope until 2025, there will be more hydrogen filling stations. I don’t know why, but they also provided the luggage capacity, 470 lt. This hydrogen powered light S-Class is capable of achieving 220 kph (137 mph). Batteries are made from lithium-sultur and contents 10 kWh of energy. So, don’t put your finger or mess up with the batteries. And hydrogen tank is capable of accommodating 7.5 kg hydrogen. I guess, it is enough for
1000 km :)
These figures are amazing, and Mercedes is planning to manufacture this car 14 years later. I am sure that, they are capable of manufacturing this vehicle but I am not confident with the hydrogen filling stations. Still, I don’t see any hydrogen stations are built around or replaced the ordinary stations. And 14 years is not a very long time period for this type of infra-structure change.
In terms of automotive language, 14 years means two generations. Each seven years, every model is renewed and 14 years is too soon for every manufacturer to move hydrogen technology.
