Social media erupted a couple of weeks back when the cost of replacing the hybrid battery pack in a Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid or E300 BlueTec Hybrid was posted online and would have swallowed about RM120,000 of any unfortunate owner’s money.

Obviously, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) had to step up and assuage the fears of owners that might come across the scenario during their ownership tenure. They introduced two critical measures aimed at making replacing the battery a more affordable cure or prevent it altogether.

Prices for a replacement battery pack is now RM 50,000 and RM 65,000 for the E300 BlueTec Hybrid and S400 Hybrid respectively.

Prevention is always better than a cure though and in that respect, MBM has introduced a warranty extension program. For just RM 2,688, owners are able to extend the warranty period on the battery pack and all associated costs with repairing or replacing it for an additional four years.

The extended warranty is for E300 BlueTec Hybrid and S400 Hybrid owners. It brings the warranty period up to eight years or 180,000km; whichever comes first of course.

If you’re keen on more info about the warranty or cost, you can contact MBM 1-800-88-1133 during regular business hours or email them at or visit the Mercedes-Benz Malaysia website at
