2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class features new software, technology that transforms the vaunted midsize sedan.
According to AutoNews.com, the 11th-generation E-Class is built on a modified version of the platform that underpins the C-Class compact sedan and GLC compact crossover.
Mercedes-Benz’s workhorse E-Class sedan, redesigned for 2024, teases the German luxury automaker’s bespoke and in-house-developed operating system.
The midsize sedan arrives in the U.S. in late 2023 with new styling and the latest version of the MBUX infotainment system. Pricing was not disclosed.
Mercedes will ditch the coupe and convertible body styles with the new generation. AMG variants could arrive in the future.
The E-Class is a pivotal piece of Mercedes’ global business. With more than 16 million delivered since 1946, it is the brand’s bestselling model series, according to Mercedes.
Despite being in the final year of its product life cycle, the E-Class, along with the CLS, was Mercedes’ second-bestselling sedan in the U.S. last year.
Mercedes combines the two vehicles in its sales reports. The nameplates accounted for 18,818 sales.
The new-gen E-Class is in production in Sindelfingen, Germany. Output should peak at more than 140,000 in 2024, according to S&P Global Mobility.
