Mercedes-Benz PH: You may have to wait at least 2 months to get that new E-Class sedan

Those who are planning to buy the newly introduced Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan today will have to wait at least two months before they can have their hands on the vehicle, an executive executive of the Mercedes-Benz Philippines said.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How long will buyers of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan today have to wait for the orders to arrive?

    According to Auto Nation Group, Sales and Marketing Assistant Vice President Rhomel Franco, at least two months.
  • How many Mercedes-Benz E-Class units have been sold since it was introduced?

    The nameplate has already rolled out over 14 million samples.
  • In an interview, Auto Nation Group (ANG) Sales and Marketing Assistant Vice President Rhomel Franco told Carmudi Philippines that while it has received its earlier orders, the current supply is already allotted to customers who have pre-ordered.

    Good things definitely come to those who wait as once they have the units delivered to them, they can immediately enjoy the power and efficiency that the Sindelfingen-manufactured model’s 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder gasoline engine and 9G-tronic nine-speed automatic transmission can deliver. To note, this powertrain combination can provide a maximum of 197hp and 320Nm of torque.

    Revealed yesterday via Mercedes-Benz Philippines’ official Facebook and Youtube pages, this premium sedan offering — that wears a P3.59 million price tag — features a sporty AMG Line body styling and sits on 19-inch five-twin spoke light alloy wheels painted in Tantalite Gray with a high-sheen finish.

    Further, it is equipped with a Pre-Safe system, Attention Assist, Active Brake Assist, Urban Guard vehicle protection that has an anti-theft alarm system and tow-away protection.

    During the online product launch, ANG Product Planning and Development Senior Manager Benjie Bautista said that the vehicle is packaged with a two-year warranty and can be extended for another year at a cost.

    Being the nameplate that has already sold more than 14 million units to date, Franco said that the company is eyeing to experience a 20-30 percent sales growth — translating to around 50-60 units sold to buyers in  2022.

    This is very possible as Bautista shared that 80 percent of the owners of the older version of the Mercedes E-Class said that they would choose the  new iteration of the model.

    Meanwhile, Franco also said that while the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is offered in a single trim (E 200) locally, customers still have the option for the Avantgarde and Exclusive versions of the model — but need to wait for a longer period.

    How long? Six to nine months, Franco said.
