Benz goes for the Big E in China
Published on March 22, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter
Beijing-Benz will unveil the China-made E 300L on the Beijing Auto Show in April. Chinese drivers like to be driven, the L’s wheelbase is extended by a whopping 14 centimetre for more space in the back.
Mercedes follows fashion. Audi has an A6L since the year 0, BMW has the 5 series ‘L’ and Volvo the S80L. Audi has a weird looking A4L as well. All cars are made in China especially for the Chinese market. Benz will offer the 3.0 litre V6 first and later likely add the 1.6 turbo four. No word yet on the price, a basic E starts at 400.000 rmb.
