When it comes to luxury sedans, few lines of cars are quite as reputed as the Mercedes S-Class, and the German automaker's famous car is now set to be made available in the form of an energy-efficient, high-performance hybrid vehicle.

Dubbed the Mercedes S650e, this particular vehicle has all the familiar trappings and features of the regular S-Class, but the difference lies in the fact that it comes equipped with a V6 engine that is boosted by a 90-kilowatt electric motor, allowing the vehicle to sprint from zero to 60 miles per hour on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 155 miles per hour.

Ultimately, this hybrid luxury sedan is a fine example of simplified vehicular innovation that preserves desirable features while adding an eco-friendly engine to suit the modern car-driver.
