Mercedes-Benz has just told us that the 2010 ML450 HYBRID is now scheduled for release in December. It will be a very limited production vehicle due to the limited availability of the necessary batteries. Also, “In order to maximize availability and ensure that we have a sufficient replacement inventory to guarantee the highest level of customer satisfaction, the ML450 HYBRID will be available as lease only without the ability to purchase.” They expect that the ML450 HYBRID lease payment will carry a premium over the ML350 4Matic of $20-$120 per month. Actual payments will be released when the vehicle is released in December.
The order banks are open and there are currently vehicles available. Now is a good time to get on board if you want to lease one of the most technologically advanced green cars in the market!
