Giancarlo Perlas May 13, 2023

Mercedes-Benz is set to release the new E-Class L, a luxurious sedan with a long wheelbase. According to leaked images and details published by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), the long-wheelbase (LWB) E-Class is longer than the standard version and will be released exclusively in China.

Design and Features

The E-Class L boasts a classic front grille design and a hood ornament bearing the three-pointed star emblem. That’s unlike the standard model which has a sportier front grille with the Mercedes logo embedded in it.

Its size goes up to 200.4 inches in length, making it 5.6 in. longer than the standard variant available globally. Meanwhile, the car’s wheelbase is stretched by 5.2 in. long for an overall size of 121.8 in., providing more legroom for the rear passengers.

Engine and Performance

Mercedes will offer the LWB model in two variants. These include the E 260 L with 201 hp and the E 300 L rated at 255 hp.

Both trims are equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine. The base version has a top speed of 146 mph, while the more potent variant can reach 152 mph.


The LWB version of the E-Class joins other luxury sedans that have had their wheelbases stretched for greater rear legroom, such as the Jaguar XFL, BMW 5 Series Li, Audi A6L, and the A7L sedan.

Release and Availability

The E-Class L did not make an appearance at the Auto Shanghai 2023. However, it is expected to debut later this year in China.

Final Thoughts on the Upcoming Mercedes-Benz E-Class L

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class L is set to take the luxury sedan market in China for customers who more likely prefer to be chauffeured. With its classic design, elongated wheelbase, and powerful engine, the LWB saloon is a testament to its maker’s commitment to providing quality vehicles for its discerning customers.
