All-hybrid S class? U.S. dealers groan


Good Grief - Diesel technology is proven - Urea injection systems make them clean - Mercedes knows the technology and yet they, like most, are drinking the kool-aid - Whether metal nickel hydride or lithium ion - batteries are expensive and unproven - Instead of "jumping the shark" how about technology evolution - The ML450 (hybrid) gets far lower mileage than the ML320 BlueTec and 35mpg is 6 years away.... Play to your strengths
