The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class still offers dual appearance for consumers to choose from.

The 3D ring grille of the new car echoes with the daytime driving lights, and a black highlight panel is added between the grille and the headlights, which complements the grille design elements of Mercedes-Benz pure electric models, reflecting the new E-Class car embracing the concept of electrification.

As the most representative product of luxury medium and large cars, Mercedes-Benz E-Class has become the benchmark of luxury car market after 10 iterations in more than 70 years. It is not difficult to see that the new car has not jumped out of the impression of Chinese consumers on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, regardless of the appearance or interior design, the car still retains a strong Mercedes-Benz flavor, but in addition, it is not difficult to find that it has begun to integrate into the electric era, and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is undoubtedly the beginning of the transformation of traditional luxury car companies from fuel cars to electric cars.
In recent years, more and more overseas car companies begin to speed up the transformation of electrification, but still can not change the slow pace of electrification. Until today, whether Mercedes-Benz EQ series, BMW I series or Audi e-tron have failed to catch up with the electrification of their own brands in the Chinese market, which may be the most confusing place for many overseas car companies. Of course, if traditional car companies are directly allowed to abandon the existing fuel car market and take a big bet on pure electricity, it is not only a negation of their past achievements, but also a "false proposition" that is impossible for giant elephants to turn around.
Generally speaking, the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class carries on the intelligent blessing to it on the basis of maintaining the fuel vehicle foundation, which is undoubtedly a measure to strengthen the product power competition. of course, whether this change can be recognized by consumers still needs to be seen step by step.

According to statistics, in 2022, Mercedes-Benz E-Class sold 123900 vehicles, BMW 5-Series 154000 and Audi A6L 117700. It is worth mentioning that the new generation of BMW 5-Series will also be launched globally in May, and the domestic long-axle version will be released this year.
