A Mercedes-Benz hybrid vehicle, such as S-Class, E-Class, GLE-Class, etc., may not start if the high-voltage battery is discharged. Typically the charge level of the hybrid battery needs to be above 28% to start the engine.
Mercedes hybrid vehicles do not have a starter. The engine is started by the electric motor, powered by a high-voltage battery, not a 12-volt battery.
