Washington DC June 13, 2013.; The AIADA newsletter reported that Mercedes-Benz is introducing the updated 2014 E-Class family of vehicles that anchor the luxury brand and account for 20 percent of the brand’s U.S. sales, reports The Detroit Free Press.

Mercedes is the luxury car sales leader in the U.S. Sales of about 117,000 through May give Mercedes a 4,200-vehicle lead over BMW and roughly double Audi’s sales, said David Larsen, E-Class product manager.

The German automaker is rolling out 15 versions of the 2014 E-Class with eight sedan choices and two wagon choices including the E400 hybrid and E63 AMG S performance models. There are also three coupes and two convertibles. There is a choice of two-wheel drive as well as 4Matic (four-wheel drive), and now consumers can choose between a gasoline engine or diesel.

The 2014 lineup launch started this spring with sedans and wagons with the V6. The hybrid as well as the coupes and convertibles will hit showrooms this month. The AMG sedans and wagons are due in August followed by a diesel that could get as much as 40 mpg on the highway in September, Larsen said.
