2016 Mercedes-Benz E Class Revealed

Carmakers are struggling to keep new cars a secret these days – Chevrolet Bolt EV, Hyundai Ionic, Faraday Future concept, to mention just few early leaks – now the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class photos have leaked before its official unveiling at the 2016 NAIAS.

At this point, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is conventional car, but we present it with confidence that a plug-in hybird version will follow in 2017.

The 5th generation E-Class is a looker, but don’t expect all-electric range to be much higher than 10-15 miles EPA (more under the European NEDC cycle).

“An E350e plug-in hybrid, with a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine and an electric motor, will join the range within a year of launch. It’s said to have an electric-only range of 20 miles. “

The Mercedes GLA

“The best or nothing”

The Mercedes GLA is a luxury SUV unveiled by the German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show.
It was previously unveiled to the public at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2013 as a concept car.
Designed to compete with the BMW X1 and Audi Q3, It slots below the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, renamed GLC-Class from 2015.
The GLA-Class shares its platform with the A-Class and B-Class, with a similar range of petrol and diesel engines.

The measure of a Mercedes-Benz SUV is its well-rounded capability.
So the GLA’s engineers traveled around the globe to cross-train it: 288 sprints around the Nürburgring. 450 Alpine corners, climbing up to 14,000 feet. 1,000 miles at a test site for tanks. The GLA doesn’t just look agile and muscular. The shape you see is the shape it’s in.

Despite the name, drivers tend to expect less sport and more utility from an SUV.
The confident chassis of the GLA does more than its share to set the balance right, and its cockpit follows through. Crisp gauges and precise controls team up for pure driving fun. You’ll still enjoy the GLA’s abundant space.

The history of Daimler-Benz AG

Daimler-Benz AG is a worldwide business now serving more than 200 countries.
Since its beginning in 1886, this automobile company has been making its impact felt in the industry.

Automobiles have been one of the most revolutionary inventions in history, and the pioneers of the automobile manufacturing industry were Gottlieb Daimler (1834-1900) and Carl Benz (1844-1929).

They began their work separately in the late 19th century, each working for his own German company. Though the men never met in person during the early days, they simultaneously developed the world’s first automobiles in Mannheim (Benz) and Stuttgart (Daimler) in the year 1886.

They each created a lightweight engine suitable for a two-wheeled vehicle known as a riding car. Once they managed to do that in 1885, Benz began working on a three-wheeled vehicle; at this time, no steering mechanism had been designed for a four-wheeled vehicle. The result, the three-wheeled “Velocipede,” can technically be called the first automobile.

A mere 100 kilometers away, Daimler created a four-wheeled light coach which is now considered the first four-wheeled automobile. Because he understood the far-reaching implications for his “grandfather clock” engine, Daimler was already considering adding motors to boats, aircraft and rail vehicles.

Both men tried to market their products internationally, but only Daimler had any success. Daimler began to have some success in the U.S. and Canada; Benz later had some success marketing his products in Britain, South Africa, and the U.S.

Both men continued working on improving their engine designs, and gas engines consistently proved to be superior to steam engines. Daimler’s engines, in particular, began to earn a quality reputation. Meanwhile Benz created the double-pivot steering mechanism for four-wheeled vehicles.

One way vehicles gained popularity is through competitive performance, something Daimler soon capitalized on this fact by creating a race car for Emil Jellinek, named after Jellinek’s daughter: Mercedes. The Mercedes 35 hp garnered international attention, and from this point on Daimler and his company (Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft) consistently built race cars and other high-performance vehicles.

Both companies, DMG and Benz & Cie, had similar mottos: “the best of the good” and “the best or nothing.” By 1908 they were producing more commercial vehicles and doing a thriving business. During World War I, their production shifted to meet the needs of the war and both companies became the leading German manufacturers of aero engines.

Both companies also made trucks, and the demand for these increased dramatically during the war, as they were used for transport. During this time of high demand, other companies began manufacturing trucks, cutting into the market for these two leaders of the industry.

The two companies merged on June 28, 1926, creating a super-company named Daimler-Benz AG. The official name for all products produced by this company is Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes C-Class Coupe

Do you like Mercedes?
Today we will talk about one of the most elegant models of the brand Mercedes, the C-Class Coupe.

2014-C-CLASS-COUPE-CH06-D

The Mercedes C-Class Coupe is a sleek and sporty-looking three-door Mercedes that rivals the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5 Coupe.

As you can see, the undisguised front end reveals a similar face to the C-Class sedan, which itself, shares a family resemblance with the S-Class, though the hood on the Coupe appears slightly flatter and more elongated while the headlamps seem to stretch back more.

The C-Class Coupe’s profile, sloping roofline and rear end are all heavily influenced by the S-Class Coupe.

Since it’s based on the C-Class sedan, it will have a similar interior, albeit with a four-seat layout, and engine range of four and six-cylinder petrol and four-cylinder diesel engines (at least in Europe) for the regular models, and a turbocharged 4.0L V8 for the C63 AMG available in two guises, with 470hp (476PS) and 503hp (510PS) for the ‘S’.

In addition, all C-Class coupes offer a choice of either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
