Advance première of the E-Class Cabriolet
Geneva. The motto was "Meet Mercedes": Journalists already had the opportunity to discover the product innovations of Mercedes-Benz Cars on the day before the 87th Geneva Motor Show in a relaxed atmosphere, and exchange views with the company's experts during this casual event. A total of eleven production and concept vehicles from Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG, Mercedes-Maybach and smart were on show at "Meet Mercedes". The main focus was on the new E-Class Cabriolet.
"The passion for extraordinary vehicles, which we share with our customers, is reflected in our new E-Class Cabriolet in a special way. It is a car that lets people enjoy comfort and luxury in the open air", says Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. The open-top four seater is the latest member of the successful model series.
A sneak preview of the new extraordinary variant of the legendary G-Class off-road icon was also on display as part of "Meet Mercedes": the Mercedes-Maybach
G 650 Landaulet (combined fuel consumption: 17.0 l/100 km. CO2
emissions (combined): 397 g/km). With the Concept X-CLASS, Mercedes-Benz Vans is providing an outlook on its new pickup, the X-Class. The "Aesthetics A" sculpture points even further into the future. With it, the design team surrounding Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG, is showcasing a vision of a saloon car in the compact vehicle segment that has been radically reduced to its basic structure.
