The German car manufacturer indicated that the new version of the famous class is spacious thanks to the wheelbase length of 3.11 meters in the standard model, and the car available in two versions with a length of 5.18 and 5.29 meters is lighter than the previous models.
With the reduction in weight and the streamlined design of the body, the moderate hybrid propulsion system has been relied on with two powers (367 and 435 horsepower) to reduce the car’s fuel consumption, as well as reaching a range of about 100 km. The car has a range of petrol and diesel engines that cover the power range extending between 210 KW / 286 hp to 320 kW / 435 hp.
The car reaches a top speed of 250 km / h, and the most economical version of the car consumes an average of 6.6 liters / 100 km diesel, which results in 163 g / km of carbon dioxide emissions.
The new generation car depends on the MBUX multimedia system, a three-dimensional digital cockpit, a huge head-up screen, and a predictive assistant that recognizes the direction of the driver’s vision and his movement on the mirror he wishes to adjust and activate the relevant key.
The steering of the rear axle allows for a steering angle of ten degrees at the rear, which makes the S-Class more agile when maneuvering. In addition, the car has new comfort and safety systems, including 10 massage programs and a superior audio system with many auxiliary systems that achieve advanced steps towards automatic driving. .
It is expected to expand the range of car models through the introduction of Plug-in versions, AMG and Maybach versions, and prices for the new Mercedes S-Class start from 96 thousand 100 euros.
Good performance indicators
At the end of last October, German carmaker Daimler announced a better-than-expected performance for the third quarter, but said it would be partially compensated for the blow that the coronavirus pandemic dealt with sales by the end of the year.
Parent company Mercedes-Benz now expects an operating profit for 2020 that matches the previous year’s results of 4.3 billion euros ($ 5.1 billion).
The second quarter, which bore the brunt of the coronavirus-related shutdowns and restrictions that affected the economy, put Daimler in the red.
However, the company reported an unexpectedly rapid recovery in demand in the third quarter while also indicating that operations have become more economical in terms of costs.
“With this momentum, we are on the path to making our business more resistant to market fluctuations,” said Harald Wilhelm, Board Member for Finance.
The company sold fewer than 773,000 cars, trucks and buses in the third quarter, down 8% year-on-year.
Revenues decreased by 7% to 40.3 billion euros compared to the same period last year.
