2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe & Convertible to be larger & more dramatic - report

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe & Convertible to be larger & more dramatic - report

According to Car Magazine, the models will have an evolutionary design but adopt a more dramatic appearance thanks to shorter overhangs and a lower and wider stance. The cars are also slated to be larger than their predecessors which should help distance them from the C-Class Coupe and Convertible.

The models will also get a technical makeover as they are slated to receive everything from a heads up display to a semi-autonomous driving mode. We can also expect an advanced infotainment system with revised controls

...a hybrid and two plug-in hybrid variants. The mild hybrid will reportedly have a 40 bhp (30 kW) electric motor and electric-only range of 3 miles (4.8 km). The plug-in hybrids, on the other hand, will reportedly have an 80 bhp (59 kW) and 110 bhp (82 kW) electric motor and an electric-only range of up to 30 miles (48.2 km).
C-Max/Zfusion Energi = 141hp-petrol+(118hp/88kW-electric) = 188hp total
Focus Electric = 143hp/106.6kW
Volt = 2 motors = 148.85hp/107-111kW & 73.75hp/55kW
Tesla S = 302hp/225kW
ditto^^^ = 362hp/279kW
ditto^^^ = 416hp/310kW
MKSe = ~444hp total (88kW-electric) ((FiNblog Link: 2015my MKSuperEnergi))

It's way to close to the C-Class.

_ovl____wlb____W____ht________
185.0 - 108.7 - 70.3 - 54.8 - 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé
180.7 - 108.7 - 69.7 - 54.8 - 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé

BTW, I hope Mercedes makes the seats comfortable.

I'm not sure if Lincoln needs that.... the car enthusiasts for sure need it.
It would be nice and convenient to see a RWD sedan to compete with E class, and a RWD coupe to compete with others luxury coupes . But that will not happen... not in the near future.
