- 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.
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.
