 You don't purchase a petrol-controlled extravagance limousine with your eco cap on. In case you're keen on sparing nature or need to continue running expenses to a base, you pick a diesel, isn't that so?

Mercedes thinks generally. It has quite recently fitted its howdy tech S-Class with a twin-turbo V6 petrol motor, coupled to a capable 114bhp electric engine. The result is the S500 Plug-In, and its fit for more than 100mpg.

It would appear that whatever other S-Class, beside the Plug-In Hybrid badging and extra filler top on the back guard. It's just accessible in AMG Line trim, however our test auto sat glad on discretionary 20-inch amalgam wheels. Given the auto's energetic styling and twin depletes, there's little to tell this super-thrifty model from the standard V8 petrol form.

Inside you get the same extravagant inner part, with rich cowhide seats and Merc's delightful 12.3-inch TFT color presentation. There's a little catch on the inside support to flick through the different driving modes, yet once more, there are not very many subtle elements around the lodge to indicate the S500's eco accreditations. There's even a couple of directing wheel-mounted oars to control the Plug-In's standard seven-rate programmed gearbox.

Push the starter catch and rather than an enormous V6 terminating into life, you're welcomed by the sound of hush. Placed it into drive, and giving the batteries are completely charged, you can waft in electric-just E-Mode for up to 20 miles.

In any case, when the batteries run dry, or you oblige a sudden surge of force, the petrol motor kicks in consistently.

Half and half mode functions admirably, offering the best of both planets by utilizing the petrol motor as a part of conjunction with the electric engine.

E-Save mode holds the battery's charge for utilization in stop-begin activity, while the Charge capacity utilizes the petrol motor to create power and can top up the battery as you drive along. We discovered this to be especially viable, loading up shockingly rapidly at motorway speeds.

Mercedes says this Plug-In S-Class will do 100.9mpg and radiate only 65g/km of Co2, yet in all actuality it truly relies on upon your driving style, and obviously, your capacity to charge the batteries from the mains.

Nonetheless, there's a lot of sharp tech to guarantee most extreme efficiency. On the off chance that you utilize the versatile voyage control and the S-Class faculties a slower moving vehicle in front, it'll slaughter the motor and coast, before flawlessly building speed again when the way forward clears. Not at all like numerous electric autos and module crossovers, there's no inclination of grabby regenerative brakes, so the S500 feels like an ordinary S-Class to drive.

It feels totally regular and completely unnoticeable. Data from the auto's GPS information is likewise encouraged into a machine to exhaust the battery while driving tough, in the learning that it can energize as the auto drifts back up the other side.

On the off chance that you live short of what 20 miles from the workplace and can charge both at home and at work, you could basically run this extravagance limo while never filling it with fuel.

Notwithstanding, for some, exception from street charge and the London Congestion Charge – itself worth more than £3,000 a year – will be the dealbreaker. Inside four years you'll have recovered the £12,000 premium over the less expensive S350, and that is without considering the cash you'll save money on fuel. Nothing this side of a Bentley or Rolls-Royce can match it for solace and extravagance, and not one or the other of those verge on a Toyota Prius at
