The E-Class Saloon and Estate were among the best-selling Mercedes-Benz models in July. The new E-Class Saloon is now available from dealerships around the world and the Estate has been available to order in Europe since last month. In China, the new E-Class Saloon with the long wheelbase should ensure a sharp rise in demand as of the autumn. Like the predecessor model, it will be produced locally.
