Mercedes-Benz at the Geneva International Motor Show 2016.
World premiere: the new C-Class Cabriolet.
One highlight of the appearance of Mercedes-Benz at the 86th Geneva Motor Show is the world premiere of the new C-Class Cabriolet. With its classic soft top it is an attractive entry-level model in the range of Mercedes dream cars, with all-season open-air driving enjoyment included as standard. Further harbingers of spring include the new SL and the SLC, both celebrating their European premieres, as well as the Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC Cabriolet “Edition 130” to commemorate the invention of the automobile 130 years ago. And the smart fortwo cabrio has now become even more exclusive: in the shape of the new limited-edition smart fortwo cabrio BRABUS edition, which is likewise celebrating its world premiere in Geneva. Also being exhibited for the first time in Europe is the new E-Class. The tenth generation sets standards in terms of design, safety, efficiency and automotive intelligence. The V-Class range is introducing the EXCLUSIVE line, which enables the MPV to impress with a particularly high level of equipment. The “Mercedes-Benz Media Night” on Monday, 29 February from 7.30 p.m. and the press conference on Tuesday, 1 March from 8.15 a.m. will be broadcast on the internet via live stream.
Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC Cabriolet “Edition 130”:
Fuel consumption combined: 10.4 l/100 km;
combined CO₂ emissions: 244 g/km.*
“Mercedes-Benz Dream Car Collection”.
Visitors will experience the “Mercedes-Benz Dream Car Collection” in a fascinating “Silver Flow” ambience: a dynamically shaped, free-floating, large-scale sculpture consisting of silver slats creates the perfect setting for the new Mercedes models. The technically sculptural Silver Flow appears to float weightlessly above the large show stand covering 3,120 square metres and combines with the central media space to form the stage area for the presentation of the numerous premieres.
Mercedes-Benz is exhibiting a total of 37 vehicles on the public days. Innovation topics are presented opposite the main stage with interactive stations at the centre of the show stand. The “E-Mobility” area presents an impressive range of electric vehicles, including the Plug-In Hybrid models of the E-Class, the GLE and the GLC as well as the purely electric B-Class, while the highlight of the Mercedes-Benz hybrid initiative is a reigning world champion: the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 W06 Hybrid racing car.
Mercedes me – the new service brand.
The dynamic shape of the “Silver Flow” guides visitors behind the main stage to Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes me – the new service brand from Mercedes-Benz. In a separate area, visitors to the show can find out about the wide-ranging and customisable Mercedes me options – from networking one’s own Mercedes-Benz with a smartphone through to innovative mobility solutions and inspiring lifestyle, financing and service offers.
Celebration time: tenth anniversary of the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
From the café on Level 1, customers can enjoy a fascinating view across the entire show stand thanks to the open design. Friends and fans of the brand are also invited to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Mercedes-Benz Museum in the café. Opened in 2006, the Museum recounts the history of the automobile from the very beginning and also looks ahead to its future. It has welcomed more than 7.1 million visitors through its doors over the last ten years.
