Mercedes S400: We Know What It's For

LCT Magazine
Posted on April 12, 2010

BLACK & GREEN REASONS: has an extensive review and photos of the $90,000-plus 2010 Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid sedan, the greener version of the S550.

The reviewer seems befuddled about the reason for such a hybrid vehicle, given its high expense and comparatively lower mileage savings than a Prius or Fusion. As many chauffeured transportation operators will tell you, there is a market among wealthy travelers and corporate clients to be comfortable while appearing green.

Green amenities are more likley to be afforded by the upper-income brackets, so if there are clients willing to spend, there are operators more than happy to collect. -- M.R.
