Makati Shangri-La, Manila Offers An Environmentally Friendly Transport with the Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid Vehicles

MB Hybrid

Makati Shangri-La, Manila pioneers a green transport alternative with the addition of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class S400 Hybrid in the hotel’s fleet of vehicles.

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S400 Hybrid uses technology to create an environmentally compatible vehicle that runs on an electrically charged (lithium-ion) battery, reducing fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions – a notable decrease in the environment’s pollution. In line with Makati Shangri-La’s strong corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment to the environment, the S400 Hybrid perfectly syncs with the hotel’s core initiatives. This is a benchmark in the automotive industry because it incorporates the technology of saving fuel to a highly sophisticated luxury vehicle without having to compromise its performance, comfort or style.

Guests may further enjoy the S400 Hybrid’s elegance and comfort with the vehicle’s state-of-the-art interior and exterior design.  An innovative lighting technology is in place to guide the driver and passengers even when in transit at night, and guests may sit back comfortably with ergonomic active seats and air conditioning that may be finely adjusted to the passenger’s needs.

Highly commended as luxury for the environment, the S400 Hybrid is available to guests of Makati Shangri-La for their transportation needs when going to and from the airport, or simply when going around. For further inquiries, please call Makati Shangri-La, Manila at 813 8888 or e-mail slm@shangri-la.com.
