Mercedes-Benz To Launch ML450 Hybrid

Mercedes-Benz is going to launch its ML450 Hybrid, the first European full hybrid vehicle to be offered in the US, on November 16.

Featuring V8-like power with four-cylinder fuel economy, the ML450 Hybrid features two electric motors and a 275-hp V6 gasoline engine. Both work together to provide hybrid power with fuel economy of 21 miles per gallon (mpg) around town and 24mpg on the highway.

The company said that ML450 Hybrid joins the S400 Hybrid and BlueTEC diesel models in its portfolio of fuel-efficient and environmentally compatible vehicles. It would be offered as part of a special lease only option (no purchase) for a monthly lease price of $659 per month for 36 months and $549 per month for 60 months.

The company claims that the new Hybrid fulfills the same crash test requirements and offers active safety with stability control systems such as ESP, ABS and BAS, as well as 4MATIC all-wheel drive. The integration of the hybrid technology has been engineered to require no additional packaging space that would compromise comfort or functionality.
