Mercedes confirms all-electric 2025 Mercedes-Benz S-Class [video]
The all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has just been launched, but the new-generation 2025 luxury sedan is already planned and it’s going to be fully electric. It may seem a bit early to be talking about the 2025 Mercedes S-Class, but the Stuttgart automaker already has the luxury saloon planned out 11 years ahead of time. The 2025 Mercedes-Benz F125! is more than just a dream, this luxury coupe has already made its appearance at the Frankfurt International Auto Show in 2011. Mercedes calls it a research vehicle, but it shows what the German automaker has planned for the all-new 2025 S-Class.
This future luxury saloon will be fully electrically powered and emission free by the year 2025. The 2025 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will see the same innovations that the F125 Concept car has now. It will feature new futuristic lightweight materials, experimental operating concepts, innovative drive technology and a new design idiom. While it may seem too far out in the future to even talk about, Mercedes is planning well ahead and knows what the 2025 S-Class will feature.
Mercedes tells us all the materials and technology exists for this luxury saloon today. Prof. Herbert Kohler, responsible for Group Research and New Drive Technologies at Daimler confirmed the existence of the 2025 S-Class technology and plans. He said, "All of the material, drive and operating concepts exist already."
