70 g/km of CO2

Rumors say a plug-in hybrid version of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

This frugal S-Class will have CO2 emissions of 70 g/km, just 1 g/km less than the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid which right now is the lowest CO2 emitter in this segment. In the combined cycle, the S500 Plug-in Hybrid is said to return more than 90 mpg UK (75 mpg US or 3.1 liters / 100 km) which is just about the same as the hybrid Panamera.

Power will come from a gasoline V6 engine working together with an electric motor and a battery pack which will be installed in the trunk so cargo capacity will be slightly lower than on the regular model. The car's user interface will include an "E Drive" mode and will sport a battery usage gauge, as seen during a media presentation held in Germany back in March.

An s class doesn't even have more soul then a xj, quattroportte or 7 series let alone range rover. Plus other SUV like a cayenne, discovery or hell Mercedes gl look better then this. The interior is nothing short of a plastic joke compared to a range rover

The only luxury car that has the soul is the Maserati Qurattroporte, No big 4 door saloon has luxury and pure drama from that gorgeous heart under the bonnet blending so well together.

This car has no soul, so lifeless almost boring. Would rather walk on straight to a range rover dealership

Last time I checked they were both LUXURY cars in the same price bracket. That would make them direct rivals

In that case SLS and S class 65 AMG are rivals to, because they cost the same. That is just plain stupid.

S65 is the same car and Sls is a 2 door car. If you knew how to read then you would read how the range rover has been voted the Luxury car of the year against the s-class. Don't remember seeing the Sls as it was being compared to a 911 for some reason

The old Range Rovers definitely had soul, the new ones not so much.
