According to the blog site, the model comes fitted with a six-cylinder petrol engine that generates 333 HP (245 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. It is backed up by an electric motor which is powered by a trunk-mounted 8.7 kWh battery. The engine allegedly powers the rear wheels, while the electric motor does the motivation for the front wheels.

This setup would enable 2014 Mercedes S500 Plug-in Hybrid to travel at least 30 km (18.6 miles) on just electricity. If that was not enough, the model will be a 3-liter car which would return 78.4 mpg US / 94.1 mpg UK and have CO2 emissions of less than 75 g/km.
