On Tuesday, April 25, Mercedes will present the redesigned next generation of the E-Class: There is already a first teaser
Mercedes-Benz will unveil the redesigned E-Class (buy Mercedes-Benz E-Class used cars now) on Tuesday, April 25, 2023. A teaser image gives us our first glimpse of the next-generation sedan, showing a familiar design, but we can only see part of the vehicle.
Numerous Erlkönighunters have already photographed the 214 series in various body variants and equipment during tests. The E-Class will receive an evolutionary design update that, while similar in appearance to the current vehicle, is still new.
The comparison between the teaser and the current model reveals clear differences. The signature line on the side runs above the door handles instead of cutting through them. Also, the line at the front and rear of the sedan is sharper on the new model.
There are also significant changes in the interior, which Mercedes had already shown in its entirety: the driver has his own digital instrument cluster. The model will also have an integrated in-dash infotainment screen, similar to the all-electric EQE.
The E-Class forms the bridge between the C- and S-Class and this mix will be noticeable in the interior. Rumor has it that the C-Class will have the 11.9-inch screen as standard and the S-Class will have the 12.9-inch OLED screen as an option.
However, the layout is not simply a copy of the EQE interior, as Mercedes-Benz has opted for slimmer outer air vents with a curved shape, which are connected to the central main vent.
Details of the powertrain of the new E-Class still remain a secret. They will be electrified in some form, however, as Mercedes says the “consistent electrification” in the new E-Class “sets new standards in terms of efficiency” and enables “locally zero-emission driving”. The AMGs won’t be able to escape this either; some models, like the new C 63, will probably be equipped with plug-in hybrid systems.
Mercedes will unveil the new E-Class on Tuesday, April 25 at 17:00 CEST. We don’t know how much we’ll get to see of the new model, as Mercedes is developing the next-generation E-Class Estate and high-legged all-terrain body, which could debut after April 25. The automaker also has the souped-up AMG variants up its sleeve, but that might not happen until late 2023 or early 2024.
