If my driving was all stop start and in traffic I would seriously consider such a car.
But I have the luxury of being able to choose (to some extent) the time I am on the road and most of my driving is at constant speed with little stop/start.
So why would I when I can see figures like this from my S320 CDI “woodburner”?

Will this hydrid not be substancial faster though than a 320cdi.

Ecologically with all these batteries its not a green car, a 320cdi is. I don't buy into the carbon this and global that school of thought tbh, but that aside for the performance it offers the economy will be good.

Both do 250 km/h max speed. S320 CDI LWB is rated 7.8 s for 0-100 km/h. This S400Bluehybrid does it in 7.3 seconds or 7.2 when the electrical motor is also used. Note that this is an improved version of the S350 V6 engine. By the time the Bluehybrid is available, the CDI may have gained more power too, remember the 204 PS 2.2 litre 4 cylinder diesel coming soon.
