At the 18th Auto Shanghai, the inventor of the automobile is presenting, in addition to the new Concept GLB, another version of the Mercedes-AMG A 35 Saloon in a world premiere. Debuts on Chinese soil are celebrated by the EQC and the new Mercedes-Benz GLE.
Compact show car with SUV genes
The latest concept vehicle from the brand bearing the three-pointed star celebrates its world premiere in Shanghai. The Mercedes-Benz Concept GLB is characterised by its robust appearance and plenty of room for up to seven people. The powerful proportions from the world of compact SUVs and the generous interior space make it the ideal family vehicle and leisure companion.
Exclusively for China – Another version of the A 35 4MATIC Saloon
A new entry-level model to the world of Driving Performance from Mercedes-AMG also celebrates its world premiere: furthermore, a new variant of the A 35 4MATIC Saloon is built exclusively for the Chinese market. The four-door three-box design combines the brand’s hallmark sportiness with lots of room.
Progressive, dynamic, electric – the Mercedes-Benz EQC
The first Mercedes-Benz model of the EQ product and technology brand is on display in China for the first time. The EQC is characterised by, amongst other things, many trail-blazing design details and colour highlights typical of the brand. Inside and out, the crossover SUV embodies the design idiom of progressive luxury and is a pioneer of avant-garde electro aesthetics. The EQC is fitted with a new propulsion system developed from the ground up comprising a compact electrical powertrain (eATS) at the front axle and another at the rear axle. As a result, the EQC delivers the handling characteristics of an all-wheel-drive vehicle and puts an output of 300 kW and a peak torque of 765 Nm on the road. Thanks to a sophisticated operating strategy, the EQC has an electrical range of more than 450 km (as per NEDC, provisional figure)i.
Premium SUV in iconic Mercedes-Benz design
The new Mercedes-Benz GLE likewise celebrates its Chinese début. The SUV trendsetter is full of innovations. For example, the active suspension system E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL on a 48-volt basis is a world first. The driving assistance systems take another step forward and also a step up with Active Stop-and-Go Assist. The interior is even more spacious and comfortable, with a third seat row available on request. The infotainment system has larger screens, a full-colour head-up display with a resolution of 720 x 240 pixels, and MBUX Interior Assist, which can recognise hand and arm movements and supports operating intentions. The exterior design not only exudes presence and power, but at the same time also sets a new benchmark for aerodynamics in the SUV segment with Cd values from 0.29.
