Mercedes-Benz GLK is ‘M’ in China

Mercedes-Benz GLK is 'M' in China

A Mercedes-Benz GLK with an ‘M’ license plate holder. The owner of the vehicle probably longs for a fast BMW, instead of stumbling around in a square shaped SUV. Or he didn’t know what the weird eMMie meant when he bought his holder. And waddabout Z9..?

Seen in the great village of Huairou some 50 kilometers north of Beijing. The Mercedes-Benz GLK is made in China by the Beijing-Benz joint venture. BMW doesn’t make any M-cars in China.

Mercedes-Benz E-L Class police car from China

A very speedy and very white Mercedes-Benz E-L Class police car, seen in west Beijing by reader Stefan M., thank you for the picture! The V212 Mercedes-Benz E-L is a stretched variant of the W212 E-Class, made in China by the Beijing-Benz joint venture. It was recently replaced by the facelifted 2013 model, which was renamed ‘E Class L’. The lengthy Ee sure makes a fine police car. Steady in the corners and enough space in the back for a whole flock of arrested criminals. The Chinese police likes Mercedes-Benz, earlier on we saw coppers cruising the hood in a Honda’d ML.

New Mercedes E Class L hits the Shanghai Auto Show

This is the very specious and very luxurious back bench on the new Mercedes-Benz E Class L, the China-only stretched Mercedes E. The name is new too, it used to be called E-L Class. The E Class L will compete stretch to stretch with other Chinese-made limousines such as the Audi A6L, the BMW 5Li and the Volvo S80L. Infiniti has a stretched M but that one isn’t made locally and thus too expensive too compete. Read more »
