The press service of the German automaker has published the final teaser for a completely new generation of the Mercedes-Benz S-class executive sedan. This time, the video shows the new body and elements of its interior.

We have seen many teasers dedicated to the new generation of S-class, many “spy” pictures from testing camouflaged prototypes of the new executive class and heard all kinds of rumors about the S-class 2021 model year. Regardless, there is still a lot we don’t know about the brand’s big flagship sedan. This new teaser video is a resume of sorts, focusing not on a specific aspect of the car, but on the inside and out.

We see fantastic new LED ambient lighting, a giant central infotainment screen, a digital instrument cluster, quilted leather folding rear seats and even a key fob.

If the information we received is correct, the new S-class will be the first production car to offer Level 3 autonomous driving capabilities. The so-called conditional automation, that is, the driver can entrust the car to control the movement itself, but still must be ready to take control.

According to insider reports, Tier 3 autopilot in the all-new S-class will apparently only be available on some roads in Germany – at least initially – and only on sections of roads with relatively low speeds and heavy traffic. … In addition, other parameters, such as weather, will affect the usability of this technology. The autonomous driving system is reportedly still in need of government approval, but it will reportedly be available on S-class sedans at the start of sales, which is scheduled for spring 2021.

The official debut of the new generation Mercedes-Benz S-class will take place on September 2 this year and will be broadcast live.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class will no longer be produced in coupe and convertible bodies. This will happen very soon – after the change of generations of the luxury car. Thus, 2021 will be the last year for the S-Class coupe and convertible.
