Mercedes-Benz will present 11 new and updated models for the yearOctober 29, 2018
The plans of the German company Mercedes-Benz to update the lineup for the next year have become known. The company promises to introduce a new crossover and electric vehicle.
In a report on the sales of Mercedes-Benz this year got a slide with announcements of upcoming new products of the company. All of them will go on sale very soon. Under the covers hid cars that have not yet been officially shown, but which can be bought in 2019.
Among the new products already known to us are the Mercedes-Benz B-class and the GLE crossover, which will appear at dealers in the first quarter of 2019, and the first in the history of the brand EQC and commercial eSprinter.
Among the expected, but not shown until us new products, we see the CLA 4-door coupe, sales of which should begin in the second quarter of next year, as well as the CLA Shooting Brake wagon, stored up, apparently, at the end of the third quarter. Both of these cars do not just fall into the lenses of the paparazzi during the test.
Mercedes-Benz GLC and GLC Coupe only updated. It will happen closer to the middle of 2019. They will receive not only a “facelift”, but also a number of modern options that should spur sales. Following, skipping ahead electrocross, in the sale will go completely new SUV GLS – the main competitor of the recently presented BMW X7.
Mysterious signature “8th compact car” indicated, most likely, the first generation of the crossover GLB. Made in the spirit of the GLK, the new compact model will combine the strength of a powerful G-class with everything that people like in compact A-class cars. The Mercedes-Benz GLB also came to the paparazzi more than once, and the photos show that the car’s interior is quite comparable to the interior of the A-class model. The GLB crossover will go on sale in about a year. Please note that there is no GLA model on the graph – A-class crossover. This means that it will be necessary to wait for the release of the novelty at least until the beginning of 2020.
The Mercedes-Benz V-class will be available in the first half of 2019. Probably, we are talking about an external update and the addition of a pair of high-tech options to the configuration. The fact is that the current generation of the model went on sale only four years ago and it is still too early to release a new generation.
And for dessert – smart. Apparently, the partner of Mercedes-Benz for the project, the company Renault, is not eager to continue working. Nevertheless, the plans of the Mercedes-Benz car is. Recall that by 2020 the model should lose the internal combustion engine and become completely electric. It is rumored that with the release of a new generation, the smart brand may disappear, and the car will enter the Mercedes-Benz model range under a new name. But this is only speculation, not awarded comments of the company.
