Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Confirms 8 More Launches In 2017

Not content with defending its leadership in the sales chart amongst premium brands, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is looking to turn the screw further on its rivals with another eight launches planned for the rest of the year.

To date, MBM has introduced eleven new model variants into the Malaysian market, although that total notably includes the now-discontinued E300 CBU, limited-run A200 Urban Hunting Edition, and counts the locally-assembled E200 and E250 separately. The six AMG 43 series models and the GLA facelift round up the overall total.

The coming months of the year will see the introduction of four new variants, two special edition models, and two new models.

We can confirm that one of the two new models will be the C238 E-Class Coupe that we reviewed earlier this year at Barcelona, and that the E350e plug-in hybrid sedan will count as one of the four new variants.

Another eagerly-anticipated offering from Mercedes-Benz will be the new W222 S-Class facelift, but we believe this model is not likely to come before 2018.
