Production milestone: 500,000 units of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has just announced a production milestone, after the company managed to roll off the assembly line the 500, 000th unit of the current generation E-Class.

According to the car manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz managed to produce a total of 10 million units of the E-Class over the years, but the W212 generation has just reached 500,000 units after it has been in production at the Sidelfingen plant in Germany since 2009. The Sindelfingen is Damiler AG’s largest production facility and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is one of the best sold vehicles of the company unit now, with over 10 million units sold over its 60 years of existence.

Mercedes-Benz says that the E-Class “wearing” the 500,000th milestone number is an E350 4Matic made for a customer in the United States and painted in Arctic White. The car company says that only the sedan versions of the new E-Class have been “counted” into the production milestone over the last three years, excluding the wagon, coupe or cabrio versions. While the Mercedes-Benz E-Class’ current generation is enjoying its success, the company is currently working on a facelift, which will add some interesting features to the model kike the LED headlights, revised suspension, night vision and other things.
