In a report on sales of Mercedes-Benz this year got a slide with announcements of upcoming new products of the company. All of them will go on sale very soon. Under the covers hid cars that have not yet been officially shown, but which can be bought in 2019.
Of the new products already known to us – the Mercedes-Benz B-class and the GLE crossover, which will appear at dealers in the first quarter of 2019, as well as the first in the history of the brand EQC and commercial eSprinter.
Among the expected, but not yet shown to us new products, we see the CLA 4-door coupe, sales of which should begin in the second quarter of next year, as well as the CLA Shooting Brake wagon, stored up, apparently, at the end of the third quarter. Both of these cars more than once fell into the lenses of the paparazzi during.
Mercedes-Benz GLC and GLC Coupe only updated. It will happen closer to the middle of 2019. They will receive not only a “facelift”, but also a number of modern options that should spur sales. After that, skipping ahead of the electrocross, a completely new GLS SUV will be on sale – the main competitor of the BMW X7 presented the other day.
Mysterious signature “8th compact car” indicated, most likely, the first generation of the crossover GLB. Made in the spirit of the GLK, the new compact model will combine the strength of a powerful G-class with everything that people like in compact A-class cars. The Mercedes-Benz GLB also repeatedly came to the attention of the paparazzi, and the photos show that the car’s interior is quite comparable to the interior of the A-class model. The GLB crossover will go on sale in about a year. Please note that there is no GLA model on the graph – A-class crossover. This means that it will be necessary to wait for the release of the novelty at least until the beginning of 2020.
Mercedes-Benz V-class will be available in the first half of 2019. Probably, we are talking about an external update and the addition of a pair of technological options to the configuration. The fact is that the current generation of the model went on sale only four years ago and it is still early to release a new generation.
And for dessert – smart. Apparently, the partner of Mercedes-Benz for the project, the company Renault, is not eager to continue working. Nevertheless, the plans of the Mercedes-Benz car is. Recall that by 2020 the model should lose the internal combustion engine and become completely electric. Rumor has it that with the release of a new generation, the smart brand may disappear, and the car will enter the Mercedes-Benz model range under a new name. But this is only speculation, not awarded comments of the company.
