Mercedes-Benz teases next-gen E-Class ahead of April 25 unveiling
The car is expected to come with mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains
Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the next-generation E-Class will be unveiled on April 25.
Ahead of its official unveiling, the firm has teased its design, which looks to resemble the silhouette of its larger S-Class sibling, with a longer profile than the outgoing car and a sloping roofline.
It comes after the firm released official images last February showing the car’s interior with the optional MBUX Superscreen installed, which is essentially a digital dashboard resembling that of EQE, with two screens beneath a single sheet of glass.
In addition to the above is a digital instrument panel and an optional head-up display.
Mercedes-Benz has yet to release any details on the powertrain options for the forthcoming E-Class, but is predicted to come with mild-hybrid technology and a choice of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.
Plug-in hybrid versions are also expected, while the range-topping AMG-spec models have been reported to be swapping V8 petrol power in favour of a new, straight-six plug-in hybrid system.
Pricing also remains unconfirmed, but is speculated to start from around £60,000, positioning it in the middle of its smaller C-Class sibling (£45,165) and the flagship S-Class model (£74,345).
