The new voice of Mercedes-Benz is Jon Hamm, the Golden Globe winning star of the hit series Mad Men. Hamm made his debut — or at least his voice — on the Academy Award Oscars show, in a commercial featuring the new Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid luxury sedan.
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz 2010 S400 Hybrid luxury sedan is the world’s first production vehicle powered by sophisticated new lithium-ion battery technology that is more compact and more energy efficient than conventional batteries.
Mercedes has a second hybrid model, the hybrid version of the ML SUV, plus three clean diesel BlueTEC models. And a fleet of vehicles powered by fuel cells is in the works.
