The most advanced production vehicle in the world.
The inventor of the automobile is presenting the most advanced production vehicle in the world, the new E-Class, at the Detroit Motor Show. It sets new standards for safety, efficiency and automobile intelligence. On 29 January 1886, Carl Benz applied to the Imperial Patent Office in Berlin for the most significant patent of the industrial age: a “vehicle powered by a gas engine” – the initial idea behind all further automobile designs in the century that followed.
Some 130 years later, on 11 January 2016, Mercedes-Benz is in “Motown” Detroit to show the new E-Class, the car with the technological capability to revolutionise mobility all over again.
