Must Know Details:

Mercedes has integrated electrification technology into the new S63, hybrid system, not only to increase efficiency but also to enhance power figures.

The S63 now produces 613 hp and 1120 Nm of torque from its 4.0-liter V8 engine alone. With electrification, it gets an additional power of 190 hp and 320 Nm of torque, resulting in a combined power output of around 800 hp and 1420 Nm of torque.

The 13.1 kWh battery can give an electric-only range of 33 km. The engine and electric motor are in constant interaction to make the throttle response snappier, resulting in a claimed 0-100 acceleration in just 3.3 seconds.

The S63, being an iteration of the S-Class, also makes it a choice for those who might want to be chauffeur-driven at times. The interior is loaded with all the features and a high-tech user interface. The S63 is topped with the best of the driver aids and active safety features, including a level-2 ADAS.

Our Verdict:

The S63 E-Performance is one of the few machines that provides you with technology, style, sensational performance, and an S-Class level of comfort. It provides more value while buying a car for this price, but the starting price of Rs. 3.30 crore (ex-showroom) is on the higher side and might be a reason for many to go for some other options rather than this long luxury sedan.

Though the amount of power it delivers and one of the last V8 engines, finding a car like this extremely rare in the future, it delivers so well in terms of both luxury and performance.
