The new Mercedes-Benz M-Class is the third generation of the vehicle that created the SUV segment to be offered for sale. Now, the new model can be ordered, and the first units will be delivered to customers in Europe in November.
“The M-Class has been a big success from the very start,” says Dr. Joachim Schmidt, Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars. “More than 1.2 million units have been sold since the vehicle was launched 14 years ago. That makes it not only the best-selling SUV in its segment, it also has the most loyal customers. The new M-Class will continue this success story and substantially boost our sales in the coming years.”
The prices for this new M-Class start at €46,200 (€54,978 including 19 percent sales tax).
“SUVs from the M-Class segment are becoming increasingly popular worldwide,” adds Schmidt. “By 2015, the world market for these vehicles is expected to grow by about 30 percent. The new M-Class has what it takes to once again set benchmarks in the SUV sector and account for a substantial amount of this growth. On average, the new M-Class consumes 25 percent less fuel than its predecessor . I t will be the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its segment, regardless of whether it is equipped with a hybrid drive or not. At the same time, it boasts first-rate active and passive safety systems as well as a unique combination of agility, comfort, and driving pleasure.”
The two diesel versions ML 250 BlueTEC 4MATIC and ML 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC, thanks to the AdBlue exhaust gas treatment system, already stay well within the EU6 emissions limit taking effect in 2014.
