Mercedes E Class "L" = E Class Maybach?

 Mercedes has just introduced a long wheelbase version of the new E Class in China.
For the Chinese market only.

Because of some odd local market taste it seems that every single car maker is offering "long wheelbase" versions of their sedans over there.
The same day, both Jaguar and Audi were showing long versions of the XF and A4.
Which is so strange and pretty much defeats the purpose of an other larger model all together.
I mean who would get a regular A6 when a "long A4" has even more legroom?

And BMW is also doing this with their SUVs!
It really seems like something out of the Bizarro World to me.

But, hey. Just look at that back seat.
Of course it's attractive to people who seat in the back and are driven most of the time. 
But again, with the new E Class already being super luxurious, who would pick a regular S-Class over this?

 Here is what they did. Mercedes did a lot of work on this.
Usually, carmakers design a longer rear door. (Plus roof etc...) But the longer versions don't look that different.
This one does.

Mercedes has been testing this Maybach version of the new E Class for a while now.
Which, as you can see, will basically be the same car as the Chinese E Class "L" model.

So there you go.
Why not sell this to everyone, everywhere...

2017 Mercedes E-Class

We've seen it before. These are just a few more pictures.
I actually like the new Volvo S90 much better. Especially the interior.

For 2017, the base engine in the US will be a 2.0 Liter with 241HP and a 9 speed auto.
As you can see above, a plug-in version will also be offered soon.

The current model offers a diesel as the base model in the US. Priced at $52 650.
Other wise you can get a V6 for $53 100.
So basically, for 2017, the new 2.0 Liter replaces the V6. (But I bet it won't be cheaper...)

All new 2016/17 Mercedes E Class

We will see the real thing very soon.
But so far, even with all that pixelated stuff, this is the best picture of the new interior I've seen.
And, as expected, it looks exactly like a cross between the C-Class and the S-Class.
No surprises here...

Also, the mix of a wide angle lens and this huge BFG type human driving the car makes the new E-Class seem like a tiny clown car.

Just saying...
