The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a range of executive cars manufactured by German automaker Mercedes-Benz in various engine and body configurations. Produced since 1993, the E-Class falls midrange in the Mercedes line-up, and has been marketed worldwide across five generations. It began to appear in the early 1960s, when that feature began to be utilized broadly in the maker’s product line, and not just in its upper tier luxury and sporting models.

The First E-Klasse series was originally available as four-door sedan, five-door station wagon, 2 door coupe and 2 door convertible.

Mercedes added tailfins to both the big S-Class and the new W110 ‘Fintail’ 190 of 1962. In the 1965 230 model a Straight-6 engine appeared for the first time, and the four cylinder engine grew in displacement. The popular W123 quickly became a best-seller on its launch in 1976. 6 million were produced until the end of production in 1986. Sedan, Coupé and Estate body configurations were offered.

From 1991 to early 1995 Mercedes offered a limited production sport version of the W124 sedan, created and assembled with help from Porsche. The W210 E-Class, launched in 1995, brought the line firmly into the upper end of the mid-size luxury market. In September 1999 the W210 E-class was facelifted. This included visual, mechanical and quality improvements over the earlier versions.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class was Motor Trend’s Import Car of the Year for 1996. While the W210 sedan was replaced by the W211 in 2002, the wagon version continued to be sold until March 2003 when the W211 wagon replaced the W210 wagon. Launched in 2002, the W211 E-Class was another evolution of the previous model. The W211-based W219 CLS-Class 4-door coupé was introduced as a niche model in 2005, primarily to attract a younger demographic.
