The Mercedes-Benz E-L spotted at the Shanghai Auto Show

The new Mercedes-Benz E-L is now at the Shanghai Auto Show. Taking off the cover a silver E-L can now be spotted at the presentation hall.

It is easily seen that the Mercedes-Benz E-L is an elongated version of the E-Class model. For a roomier interior space and mainly in the back area the E-L is bigger with 11 centimeter than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Produced specially for the Chinese market by the Beijing-Benz joint venture the Mercedes-Benz E-L comes in premiere with the E400L Hybrid. This is the most powerful engine produced in China developing 333 bhp and 480 Nm of torque being connected to an electric motor.

An important step has been done by the Mercedes-Benz because the German Brand is the first one to produce hybrid technology in China, even though competition said they will do it also. The E-Class will be available in E200L (1.8-liter turbo with 184 bhp), E260L (1.8-liter turbo with 204 bhp), E300L (V6 with 231 bhp) variants too.

Risky or not the Mercedes-Benz E-Class can start to conquer the Chinese market this Saturday at the Shanghai Auto Show.
