Shanghai: China Gets a Longer E-Class

Posted by: Shelton Kwan onApril 21st, 2013


Mercedes-Benz is set to introduce a long wheelbase version of the E-Class specifically targetted at the Chinese market at the Shanghai Auto Show. This is in contrast to the long wheelbase Panameras that Porsche also recently announced in Shanghai that will be available for order worldwide. The E-Class Long, measuring 501.9cm in length with a wheelbase of 301.4cm, will offer an additional 14cm of legroom for the rear passengers. Built exclusively in China, the Long features the revised interior and exterior updates of the facelifted E-Class. Engine choices include the 204hp 4-cylinder (E260 L), the 245hp V6 (E300 L), and the 333hp V6 (E400L). Sadly, there is no AMG version available for the E-Class Long.
