Mercedes Benz E-Klasse, a Sales Chart Hit
“The new E-Klasse is a great success, setting standards not only for safety, comfort and efficiency, but also for market acceptance. This is demonstrated by the fact that each of the four models- the sedan, the estate, the coupe and the convertible - is currently the world’s best-selling vehicle in its comparative class,” Joachim Schmidt, Mercedes Benz Sales and Marketing vice president said.
“We are delighted about the positive customer response to the new E-Class models since they are essential to the success of Mercedes-Benz.”
According to the German carmaker, the best selling E-Klasse is, of course, the sedan version, with 230,000 people going for one. The estate sold 28,000 units, while the coupe and convertible combined managed to reach 60,000 units sold.
The biggest market for the model is the US, where Mercedes sold about 20 percent of all the E-Klasse vehicles. Germany, the UK and China complete the top four E-Klasse-friendly markets.
The latest release in the lineup, the E-Klasse Cabriolet, was presented at this year's Geneva Auto Show. The vehicle comes with a choice of seven engines, all but one BlueEFFICIENCY models, and a series of interesting innovations: AIRCAP automatic draught-stop, AIRSCARF neck-level heating system and acoustic soft top.
The E-Klasse cabrio retails from EUR47,719 (E 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY 6-speed manual) and reaches EUR71,519 (E 500 7-speed automatic).
