December 02, 2021 by

A prototype of the new Mercedes E-Class has been spotted testing ahead of a possible reveal in 2023. Read on for all you need to know about this all-new upmarket saloon.

  • New Mercedes E-Class spotted
  • Styling cues from the S-Class
  • Updated infotainment expected
  • Plug-in hybrid predicted
  • Possibly on sale in 2023

Spy shots of the new Mercedes E-Class have been revealed. This is an early prototype and its design has been disguised using heavy camouflage.

This alternative to the BMW 5 Series and Audi A6 is expected to be officially revealed in 2023.

New Mercedes E-Class design

The new Mercedes E-Class is still in the early stages of development, so this prototype is well covered up.

Up front, you can just about make out a slim LED headlight design similar to the S-Class. In fact, you can expect the S-Class theme to continue across the car.

Down each side of the new Mercedes E-Class you can see some flush-mounted door handles similar to those on the Mercedes EQS, while at the back there are some new LED tail lights.

New Mercedes E-Class interior and infotainment

No images have surfaced of the new Mercedes E-Class’ interior, but you can expect it to share some design cues with the S-Class.

This may mean a new, much larger screen in the centre of the dashboard and a more minimalist design than the current car.

New Mercedes E-Class engines

Mercedes hasn’t announced any engines for the new E-Class yet, but it’s a safe bet that there will be a selection of petrol and diesel models available, with high-performance AMG versions coming later on.

It’s highly likely that there will be a plug-in hybrid as well, but not an all-electric model. For that, you’ll want to check out the upcoming Mercedes EQE.

New Mercedes E-Class price and release date

With the new Mercedes E-Class still in the early stages of development, no pricing has been announced yet. It’s safe to say that it will be more than the current car, probably around the £45,000 mark.

Mercedes only recently updated the current E-Class, so don’t expect to see this new one revealed until around 2023.
