Mercedes-Benz E-Class LWB Starts Production in Beijing
“As the first Mercedes-Benz model locally produced in China, since 2006 the E-Class has already made history,” said Hubertus Troska, member of Daimler’s Board of Management responsible for China. “Built in China, for China: The long-wheelbase E-Class is a clear proof of Mercedes-Benz’ commitment to China, developed to exactly meet the needs of our Chinese customers. And with the latest intelligent drive technology and two separate model lines conveying two distinct personalities, the new E-Class will continue its brilliant path in China and plays an important role in the rejuvenation of our product lineup.”
With 14 centimeters added to the wheelbase, the E-Class LWB offers much more leg room and the longest rear seat cushion in its segment. Like in the S-Class Long, passengers in the rear seat can control and adjust the front passenger seat and the panoramic seat electronically. The market launch for the car has taken place at the Chengdu Auto Show.
