Audi has the E-tron and BMW has just announced their new i line-up, but what about Mercedes? British magazine, CAR, suggests that Mercedes is considering a new E Superlight saloon for the 2015 model year. This new model will bethe same size as the CLS and will have the S-Class’ price, but will combine design elements from concepts like the F800 and the F125.

The new E Superlight sedan will be based on the platform of the next generation E-Class and will feature short rear pantograph panels that swing out and back. It will come with a stiff and strong carbon fiber structure that will help it reduce its weight considerably - down by about 350 kg/772 lbs, thanks in large part to the carbon fiber’s 1300 kg/2,866 lbs weight - as well as its cost and complexity.

Mercedes will opt for a load-based confectioning scheme that will allow the suspension and the drivetrain to be integrated into the monocoque. The car’s hybrid system will combine a 150 HP fuel-cell which drives the rear wheels in sync with a 50 HP electric motor.

The Mercedes E Superlight will go on sale as a limited edition in 2015, but by 2017, Mercedes hopes to sell about 20,000 units.

I’m really impressed with what Mercedes bring their best concept in the car industry. Different looks with a high-tech one. I think for the next coming year’s, Mercedes will be the best of the best. Probably this Mercedes E Superlight will help a lot because carbon fiber is inexpensive and abundant.
