STUTTGART: Mercedes-Benz has started production of the new E-Class at its Sindelfingen plant near here.
With a total of over 13 million E-Class sedans and wagons sold, the E-Class is the best-selling vehicle in Mercedes-Benz history.
To mark the official start of production, Mercedes-Benz gathered examples of the nine predecessor model series at the finishing line of the business sedan in Sindelfingen.
“The start of series production in our 101st year continues the Sindelfingen success story,” stated Michael Bauer, Site Manager of the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant.
“The E-Class stands for everything that makes our plant the competence center for upper range and luxury-class vehicles: tradition, innovation and the drive to set standards among the world’s best.”
The new E-Class delivers stylish highlights with its emotive design and exclusive interior. It also marks the world premiere of numerous technical innovations. They enable comfortable, safe driving on a new level plus a new dimension in driver assistance – among other things. The vehicle also comes with infotainment and control systems.
