2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class CKD Malaysia Launch; E200, E250 From RM349k

The much-awaited roll-out of the locally-assembled W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class in Malaysia is finally underway as the new Pekan-built units take over at the showroom from their German-built predecessors.

Benefiting from EEV incentives, the CKD E-Class enjoys a substantial price reduction enabling it to compete more keenly against an increasingly crowded segment that has just welcomed the Volvo S90 / V90 along with the all-new G30 BMW 5 Series. Like the E-Class, both the S90 and 5 Series were launched as CBUs with local-assembly set to commence later.

From the four-pronged line-up offered with the CBU models, the E200 and E250 models remain, but the range-topping E300 model is set to replaced by the E350e plug-in hybrid variant that was previewed at the launch event but will only be launched in Q3, priced below RM400,000.

  • E250 Exclusive: RM383,888 (CBU: RM425,888)
