2021 Mercedes-Benz S580
- Vehicle Overview
The S500 features a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engine, good for 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, while the S580’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 packs 469 hp and 516 lb-ft.
The S580e combines the S500’s six-cylinder engine with a 110-kW electric motor and a 28.6-kWh lithium-ion battery that’s larger than that of many all-electric compact cars. The battery pack alone weighs 531 pounds. A normal AC charger will refill the battery at a rate of 11 kilowatts, but a DC charger can manage up to 60, cutting the recharge time down to just 30 minutes.
