Introducing the Mercedes-Benz CLE Coupe

New Models: C & E-Class Coupes Replaced

Mercedes-Benz gave a glimpse of the recently-unveiled CLE coupe on their social media page, proclaiming that the two-door automobile will be revealed on July 5 at 11 AM Eastern Time (5 PM CEST).

In the meantime, the S-Class coupe and its cabriolet version will be removed entirely.An upcoming model by the German manufacturer is slated to take over four of its existing models, indicating a gradual move to a more straightforward selection of gasoline-powered cars. Initially, the new hardtop two-door will supplant the existing C-Class and E-Class coupe versions, while the convertible versions of both will be superseded by the anticipated CLE droptop, which has been sighted in several spy photos taken in the past year. On the other hand, the S-Class coupe and its convertible variation shall be removed from the lineup altogether.

As with the contemporary convertibles, the forthcoming CLE droptop is devised to have a fabric roof, thought to be more stylish, smaller, and a lot lighter than the traditional folding hardtop. Nevertheless, it doesn’t supply the equal level of strength as its once-trendy counterpart.

The coupe version of the vehicle is set to make its debut next week, and it has been given the codename “C236”. It looks to have a very stylish body, similar to the S-Class coupe that was only made for one generation.

The upcoming CLE will be available in Europe, the USA, and other global territories, with US merchants receiving first info concerning the fresh two-door in June 2022 when Mercedes-Benz allegedly gave them notice that it would arrive initially with a solitary electric 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant. In the existing C-Class sedan, this precise motor yields an overall 308 horsepower in its C300e plug-in hybrid version.

As revealed in an EPA report by Car and Driver in April, it has been determined that the CLE will also include a 6-cylinder version, together with an AMG 53 performance edition. Besides, rear-wheel and 4Matic all-wheel drive models are part of the obtainable setups.

The earlier-era Mercedes-AMG E53 boasted a 3.0 litre inline six hooked up to an electric powertrain, resulting in a combined strength of 451 horsepower that was driven to all four wheels via the 4Matic+ AWD technology. Hence, upon its launch, the forthcoming CLE 53 AMG is likely to offer a similar sort of performance for hot coupes.

We await with anticipation for the official unveiling of the Mercedes-Benz two-door vehicle on June 5; Motor1 will have up to date news regarding what the new vehicle is about, so keep checking back!
