The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class saloon is the successor to a Mercedes model that has been successful throughout the world, and of which more than 1.3 million examples have been sold since 2002. In Germany more than 40 percent of all saloons in this market segment have an "E"in their model plate, and in many western European countries this Mercedes model series is the number one in the luxury class.Since 1947, when the Model 170 V was introduced as the direct ancestor to the E-Class, Mercedes-Benz has produced more than ten million saloons belonging to this series. This makes the Mercedes-Benz E-Class easily the world's most successful business saloon.

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class will appear in the showrooms of the European Mercedes sales and service outlets and dealerships in March 2009.
