Mercedes-Benz S-Class 580e PHEV Launched In Malaysia
Mercedes-Benz S-Class 580 e is a testament to the latest technology and luxury.
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia today announced the highly anticipated arrival of its flagship vehicle, the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class, setting the benchmark of luxury limousines.
This sedan was an immediate sales hit when it beat Rolls Royce and also Bentley for the prestigious award of ‘World Luxury Car 2021’as voted by our 93 distinguished international journalists from 28 countries that make up the World Car Awards jury panel. The votes were tabulated by KPMG.
The latest model features a new generation of plug-in hybrid that offers customers the best of both worlds where it can be driven on battery power alone and on the combustion engine when on a long journey.
By the way, when Mercedes announced recently that they had built their 50th millionth car, it just happened it was this all new S-Class model. Well, they have been around long enough.
The best technologies are the ones that our customers don’t even notice. The S-Class introduces safety innovations such as the world’s first use of a rear airbag in a series-production passenger vehicle.
Next level MBUX: No other innovation in recent years has so radically changed the operation of a Mercedes-Benz as much as the second generation MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). Its voice assistant is now available for each individual seat which is in the back and in also the front. With over-the-air updates and latest technology in artificial intelligence, the MBUX will continue to learn its driver, and passengers over time.
PRESS RELEASE: Michael Jopp, Vice President, Sales & Marketing Passenger Cars, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia said, “The S-Class is the world’s best-selling luxury limousine and we are also pleased that the new S 580 e will be a locally-assembled variant as its predecessor. This is a testament of our commitment to reinforce our local commitment to expand our local foothold in the country.
The vehicle underpins our claim to produce the best automobile in the world. This is where covetable luxury meets the greatest possible safety and highest level of comfort.”
The S-Class is the center-piece of the brand, and stands for the fascination of Mercedes-Benz. It follows a long tradition that extends back to the beginnings of the Mercedes brand in the early 20th Century. Each model has decisively influenced the automotive engineering of its era.
Well before the official designation S-Class, the models in the executive and luxury class were the mainstay of the Stuttgart-based company’s portfolio and have always stood for luxury, comfort, safety and lifestyle. The continuous ancestry of the S-Class begins with the model 220 (W 187) of 1951. The designation “S-Class” was officially introduced with the 116 series in 1972.
