Mercedes-Benz has announced the pricing for the 2013 E400 Hybrid.

Revealed at the beginning of the year along with the E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid, the E400 Hybrid is now available for order in the United States, with prices starting from $55,800. The model is motivated by a V6 gasoline engine that generates 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) of torque, along with an extra 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) produced by the 20 kW electric motor.

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz E400 Hybrid is capable of returning 24 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the combined cycle. It needs 6.7 seconds to do the 0-60 mph sprint, on its way to a maximum speed of 130 mph (209 km/h). Unlike the aforementioned E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid which is also available as a wagon, the E400 Hybrid is being sold in the U.S. only as a sedan.

The E400 Hybrid is cheaper than two of its most important rivals, the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 ($61,845) and the Lexus GS 450h ($58,950), but it’s more expensive than the Infiniti M35h ($54,200).

Torque: 273 + 184 = 457 lb-ft. These are AMG, M, RS numbers at 56K with a 2.5 L mileage WOW, still not sold on the hybrid systems yet. But definitely something to consider, as the system gets proven.

The Camaro SS goes faster than 220km/h...almost all American cars can exceed the maximum speedometer rating even though it will not show the actual speed in excess. The manufacturers limit the top speed of the cars in the US and routinely ship downgraded spec vehicles to the US. This is a negative stereotype representing the assumption that Americans want only soft riding, floaty cars. That might have been true a decade or 2 ago but it is not true anymore. The Chevrolet ZR1, Z06, Cadillacs V series cars, Ford's Taurus SHO and Chrysler SRT products all put the lie to that assumption. I dont understand why people hate on American cars in this forum so much and base it on out-of-date information.
