Mercedes works on 20 new models by 2014
It seems Mercedes is looking to fill their plate with projects over the next few years. Their plans consist of unveiling 20 new models in all size classes by 2014. And these new models are not just measly engine options, but new models altogether. If anyone can do it, Mercedes can and with this plan set forth they hope to achieve their goal of selling 1.5 million units in 2015.
The list of new models will include a facelift version for the C-Class set to be revealed in 2011, a new C-Class Coupe, an SLK successor, a new M-Class, and an SLS AMG Roadster. Also in 2011, we will not only see a new B-Class and a successor for the A-Class, but a small SUV called the BLK as well.
In 2012, there will be a successor for the Smart Fortwo, a shooting brake version of the Mercedes CLS, the new generation SL-Class, and an electric version for the SLS AMG. In 2013 we will see a completely new off-roader based on the C-class called the GLC. Finally, in 2014, Mercedes will bring out the new generation C-Class.
Quite a mouthful and quite a hefty goal to achieve for the luxury automaker and we are sure there are still new models coming out that are being kept under wraps. Mercedes isn’t going to lay out their entire hand so soon so we expect to bring more information about new Mercedes models as time goes by. Stay tuned!
