2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS will also be hybrid

Mercedes is already working at the second generation CLS that will make its world debut during a major car show in late 2010 with sales following in early 2011. Big news is, that next to the standard engine, the future CLS will also be offered as a hybrid.

It will get the same powertrain as the forthcoming S400 Hybrid that will be launched at the end of 2009, which means that the CLS Hybrid will make use of lithium-ion batteries that not only weigh less but also offer more power than the nickel hydride units used in today’s hybrids.

Design will follow the basic shape of the current generation model adorned with styling elements from the German automaker’s newest cars.

I recently read that all Benzes will be electric by 2015. Huzzah!

Cool Hybrid or EMA ???

Does anyone know if this will be a TRUE HYBRID or just a EMA ( Electric Motor Assist ) ?

I don't know for sure, but I think it will be true hybrid. Indeed are rumors that in 2015 there will only electrical vehicles(Benz). Anyway I think it's a good idea. And global warming, pollution, expensive fuel and other, go down.

Too Small

I certainly hope they made the car a little bigger because the current one has no leg space in the back

Yeah, but your already high energy bill will go even higher. When there's a power outage or terrorist attack on a power plant powering a good portion of America (think NY blackout), how are you going to drive yet alone cook?

Power plants generate a lot of pollution and from 100% of the energy that leaves the plant, only 10% is useable (similar to a biology food chain). Most of the energy doesn't even make it to your home. Over 90% of the energy can make it there if the lines have liquid nitrogen surrounding the wires, which is more efficient, but is innitially expensive. NYC currently has this setup.

Global warming isn't neccessarily bad. When a massive volcanoe errupts and spews phosphoric particles into the air that reflect light back into space our world will go into a little ice age for decades. Global warming would help to combat over cooling. And right now after decades of research, GW is still a theory, no one has proven it. Similar to Jesus, it's a belief.

Another words, I think Benz putting all their eggs into one basket is a bad idea. Everything shouldn't run off of electricity because when it goes, we're done. Hydrogen is a great alternative and advancing solar cells is another.
