Nevada (USA) 23. November 2015 – not far from the California barstow we turn on the Interstate I-15 towards the north. Uberland goes into a camouflaged Mercedes E 400 of the upcoming generation W213, a car, the inner brand core of Mercedes-Benz. The W213 will be presented for the first time at the Detroit Motorshow in January 2016 and come to trade almost three months.
Michael Kelz, developing manager of the Mercedes E-Class, pilots the car on one of the weaning testing trips. A second, also the e-grade E-Class model controls his colleague Hubert Schneider. "We wanted to build a small S-Class," delights KELLE’s self-confident of the high-class column of the new model. The quiet interior and the cultured roll-up comfort seem to be confirmed by his words.
From taxi to the AMG model, from station wagon to convertible
Kelz speeds up the 333 hp sedan, which was easier to grow by up to 70 kilograms compared to the process of easily grown dimensions: "We use the new model Mabstabe. But that’s not easy, because the E-Class has a maximum spreading with us. Everyone has to be satisfied from the simple taxi version to the AMG top model."
It is said to be a particularly favorable entry-level model for taxi entrepreneurs, LED headlights, navigation system and animated instruments in the base variant remained in the basic variant, and in the basic equipment, cost-bearing 16-inch rims are mounted. But not only in the equipment, there are rough differences, the model variety is also roughly expanded again in a new generation: In addition to the sedan, as in the process W 212, the derivatives combination, coupe, convertible and the fourth, coupe-shaped CLS will give.
In the area between C and S-Class, the new E-Class should convince with appropriate design and also with a further widewar interior. The seats with air conditioning at the front and rear should set mabstabe as well as the low rush level. Among other among other things, massage functions are relevant and heated panels in turbeln and the center console will be consolidated.
