Efficiency Can be This Beautiful

GENEVA, March 3 -- "The best medicine for bad times is first class products," is the statement made today on the Mercedes press conference at the Geneva Motor Show by Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. The brand bearing the three-pointed star delivered two prime examples of this in the shape of the double premiere of the new E-Class sedan and the new E-Class coupe. The ninth generation of the successful upper mid-range model series will come to market at the end of March as the safest and most comfortable vehicle in its class. With up to 23 percent less fuel consumption compared with its predecessor, the new E-Class also sets benchmarks in terms of efficiency and environmental compatibility. The new E-Class coupe boasts the same technology as the sedan. The powerfully elegant two-door carries forward a tradition that has repeatedly inspired enormous passion throughout the history of this model type.
