Mercedes-Benz is bringing a game changer based on the immensely popular E-class in the mid-size luxury segment in India. The E class contributes to more than 30% of Mercedes-Benz sales in India and there’s no doubt that it is the most important model for the three-pointed star in India and worldwide.
India will be the first country to get the right-hand drive version of the E-class LWB. To keep the cost under control, Mercedes-Benz is manufacturing the car at their Chakkan plant in Pune. The car comes in both petrol and diesel versions:
- E200 Petrol: 1991 CC, 182 hp and 300 Nm
- E350 Diesel: 2987 CC, 255 hp and 620 Nm
Mercedes-Benz will withdraw the standard variant to prevent in-house competition. For a quick reference, the LWB version has 140 mm and 205 mm more wheelbase and overall length respectively.

More wheelbase has solely been utilized for improving the space at the rear; the LWB has an impressive 50% more cabin room at the rear than the standard model and it also gets a large panoramic sunroof. The rear seats, obviously are luxurious and large with more than enough back and thigh support and loads of legroom. The seats are also reclinable.
