The sixth-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class LWB will be launched in India around H2 2024.
Earlier this week, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the sixth-generation E-Class. The carmaker has now confirmed that the car will be launched in the Indian market in H2 2024.
Speaking of the Indian market, Mercedes offers the long-wheelbase version of the E-Class in India. In fact, it will be the only right-hand-drive market in the world for the new E-Class LWB.
Here’s the official statement from Mercedes-Benz India:
” India will have the LWB version of the New E-Class which will be introduced at a later stage, after the debut of the standard wheelbase. India is the only RHD market for the LWB E-Class, and the market debut is expected only around the second half of 2024.”
The sixth-generation E-Class is based on an updated version of the MRA architecture. The car certainly looks striking with its S-Class-inspired front end and large reprofiled LED headlamps. It also gets flush-fitting door handles and new tail lamps with the 3-pointed star graphic.
Inside, the new E-Class features a 12.3-inch floating digital instrument cluster and a 14.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Customers can also opt for the new superscreen, which adds a display for the front-seat passengers.
The 2024 E-Class will be available with a choice of 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with either a mild-hybrid or a plug-in hybrid system. The standard car packs anywhere from 196 BHP to 375 BHP, depending on the variant, while a 9-speed automatic transmission is offered as standard.
