Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid - Click above for high-res image gallery

If you look solely at its U.S. sales figures, you might think that Mercedes-Benz is just barely committed to hybrid vehicles. Combined, total U.S. sales of the Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid and the ML450 Hybrid SUV in 2010 aren't even worth mentioning. However, Dr. Christian Mohrdieck, Daimler's director of fuel cell and battery-drive development, told Hybrid Cars that Mercedes-Benz is investing heavily in hybrids, stating that Mercedes plans to have "hybrid models in all our car lines." Mohrdieck says that the automaker's E-Class, C-Class, R-Class and M-Class models will all feature hybrid variants soon and that diesel-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids will come to the U.S.

While Mohrdieck acknowledges that Daimler has set aside a significant amount of cash to develop battery-powered and fuel cell vehicles, he says that the automaker intends to invest substantially more on internal combustion-engined and hybrid automobiles.
