Mercedes-Benz will expand its resurrected Maybach sub-brand which has a super-luxury style of the upcoming E-Class
The brand-new range-topping E-Class, caught here testing in prototype form ahead of a likely unveiling at next year’s Beijing motor show in China, is actually set to form part of a three-style Mercedes-Maybach line-up alongside the recently introduced extended-wheelbase S-Class as well as a luxurious brand-new Range-Rover-rivalling GLS Maybach due for launch next year.
Autocar understands the brand-new E-Class Maybach is actually set to be powered by a 417bhp style of the AMG-developed twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine, as recently launched inside facelifted G500. some other ppowertrain options are also planned, including a petrol-electric plug-in hybrid set-up offering a zero-emissions range of up to 31 miles, according to sources at the German car maker.
Sporting a significantly longer wheelbase than the standard brand-new E-Class, the style will be offered with individual rear seats similar to those inside Mercedes-Maybach S-Class.
Mercedes-Benz has traditionally produced a long-wheelbase style of the E-Class, although up to at in which point the idea has been sold exclusively in China, where the idea is actually produced at Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler’s joint venture partner, Beijing Automotive Industry Corporation (BAIC).
The existing E400 L Hybrid, built by BAIC, carries a 140mm longer wheelbase than standard E-Class versions at 3015mm – or just 20mm shorter than in which of the standard S-Class.
