Mercedes-Benz S400 BlueHybrid

European manufacturers have been slow to adopt hybrid-electric technology—in part because half the new cars sold there are diesels, which use less fuel to start with. Now Mercedes-Benz has launched its first production hybrid.

It’s a simple “mild hybrid” that restarts the engine after it’s switched off when stopped, as well as adding some degree of electric boost. But the new car comes with a kicker: The Mercedes-Benz S400 BlueHybrid is the very first production hybrid in the world with a battery that uses lithium ion cells, rather than the less energy-dense nickel-metal-hydride found in every other hybrid thus far.
