Reportedly, Mercedes-Benz will bring its Mercedes-Benz, Maybach, Smart and AMG brand models, totaling 38, to the Beijing Auto Show later this month, including three models of the new long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz E-Class that will make their world debut, and three models of the F800 Style Concept, the SLS AMG supercar and the new E-Class Cabriolet that will make their Asia debut this time. The C-Class wagon, as China’s initial model, will also be unveiled at the Beijing show.
The new long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz E-Class model
The new long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz E-Class, to be produced in China, is one of the Chinese consumers’ favorite models; some adjustments have been made to its body length and width as well as the wheelbase. In motive power, the Chinese-made new E-Class will be equipped with two engines which are the 1.8 liter turbocharged engine and the 3.0-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine. The corresponding models are the E200L, E260L and E300L, of which the first two use the same 1.8-liter turbocharged engines and are equipped with Mercedes-Benz’s BLUE EFFICIENCY technology.
Mercedes-Benz F800 Style Concept car
The avant-garde design of the F800 Style Concept car includes snake-eye headlights with air intake all around, trans-rear tail lights, fine radiator fins at the ventilation openings, side-by-side doors, edgy instrument and seats. In power systems, Mercedes-Benz has equipped the F800 with the plug-in hybrid and fuel cell. The former consists of the 3.5L V6 petrol engine and the 81kw motor, whose total power is expected to be over 400 hp and if driving in pure electric mode, could reach about 30 km. Benz has stated clearly that the system will be applied to the next generation Mercedes-Benz S-CLASS.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar
The new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar is powered by the 6.3-liter V8 engine with a maximum power of 571 hp and peak torque of 650 Nm and has an acceleration time from 0-100 km/h of only 3.8 seconds.
Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet
The drag of the new Mercedes-Benz E-class convertible has reached 0.28, and will increase again when the Aircap is raised, and the fuel consumption will increase as well.
