Mercedes-Benz has been building hybrid vehicles for quite awhile. We have sold limited numbers of ML450 Hybrid and S400 Hybrids in the US. Recently Mercedes-Benz has announced that they will be adding to our Plug-In Hybrid choices!
Automotive News Article
““On average we will bring a new plug-in hybrid to market every four months,” said Johannes Reifenrath, head of product strategy and planning at Mercedes-Benz Cars.”
“The S 500 plug-in will offer the performance of a V-8 with the consumption of a four-cylinder engine, according to Mercedes. Additionally, it will give motorists the option to drive emissions free for up to 33 kilometers when its 8.7 kilowatt hour lithium iron-phosphate battery is fully charged, which takes anywhere between two to four hours.”
“Part of the savings from the S-class plug-in comes from its predictive energy management system that uses GPS data and radar sensors to calculate a route-based adaptive strategy for when to best drive electrically, use the combustion engine only, or both in combination.”
More choices is a good thing, right?

This Sprinter began life as a 2015 Passenger Van. We had the factory seats in the back removed and added 6 spacious, comfortable bucket seats! This is the ultimate road trip vehicle! Notice in the picture above that this vehicle fits in a standard parking spot.
The side door slide open for access to the three back rows. The outer seats are equipped the LATCH for child seats and each seating position has a large cupholder and 12V charging port.
The front seats of the Sprinter were designed for high mile drivers. They are comfortable and supportive for hours behind the wheel.
Behind the seating is a large cargo area that could hold piles of luggage. We added a custom box to prevent smaller items from rolling around during daily driving.
The price for all of this space? $60,000! Come take a look and see if it would work for your family, team or organization! You can find out all about the incredible fuel economy of this 4-cylinder diesel as well as all of the other Mercedes-Benz technology at Sprinter online.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 is here! It is not yet officially for sale in the US but our demo model is currently doing laps and taking orders! They should start to arrive for sale in a few weeks.
The most common question about the GLA-Class is “how big is it?” So, for a sense of scale, here is Amara. Amara is our inventory manager. She is 5′ 4″ tall and wearing flats. The seat is adjusted for her driving position.
Amara was very tolerant of my art direction! She currently drives a C350 and kept saying how big the GLA was on the inside. Come by for a test drive soon! I will not make you sit in the cargo area.

I have compared the 2015 C300 to the 2014 C250. I have compared the 2015 C300 to the 2015 S550 and now, here is the 2015 C300 Sport trim vs the C300 Luxury Trim! (There is also a Sport Package available for the C300 that changes the look of the bumpers. I am sure I’ll get to that soon.)

Ask and ye shall receive! I recently posted about the new colors available on the G-Wagen for 2015 and specifically mentioned wanting to see it in Paprika if it was ever built. Turns out there is already a Paprika G63 AMG in the world! It was exhibited at Pebble Beach and the designo Product Manager was nice enough to send me a picture! Enjoy!
