2013 Mercedes C Class 1Between 2013 and 2015, Mercedes renewed three main classes in the program: to be the successor to C, D, and S-class. All information about the technology and the new design philosophy. As relaxed not seen long head of the Mercedes design Gorden Wagener: he leans back in the California Design Studio in Carlsbad and lets his advanced design Chief Steffen Köhl – discussing the future of the brand, the new design strategy and global trends that must be taken into account in the design of the successors of C, E, and S-class. There are only a few step that so confidently leave the parquet employees – especially as Steffen Koehl highlights important trends in his speech.
Long bonnet, flowing silhouette Sustainability as part of design, forms, which are inspired by nature, and the move away from excessive lines as she heated tempers still the current S class. “We want to be sporty proportions and land lines, not really, but stylish – like the CLS”, Koehl explained in his presentation. This strategy is reflected in the renewal of the three limousine series in full: long bonnet, a flowing silhouette, short and strong zugepfeilte front overhangs and large, flush fitted wheels are the three largest contributor to revenue of the House.
Mercedes c-Klasse – no frantic wedge It benefited particularly the c-class, which has a good chance with the model change in the year 2014, to advancing the design star of the scene. No raging wedge, as designer Koehl anyway would reject it, but – according to the new strategy – “an exciting car with a certain romantic and classic appeal”. The sounds that strikes the newly formed design team to Gorden Wagener, are unusual – and accordingly also the technical concept fails. The next generation of the c-class is prepared for all alternative forms of propulsion: already with the research car F800 Mercedes has shown, that on the same platform a plug-in hybrid as well as a fuel cell car present themselves can be, which can lead to a range of up to 600 km.
Light weight materials for the new Mercedes E-class Sure, these variants remain niche models, and the majority of share of sales is that four- and six-cylinder engines account for their Verbrauch with the model change by 20 per cent cut are to. The highest-selling models C include future 220 CDI (170 HP), C 220 CDI (204 PS) and C 350 (306 HP). In addition, to reduce the fuel consumption, Mercedes relies on the use of lightweight materials for the C, like the closely related E class (new from 2015 onwards): hood and trunk lid are made of aluminium in the future, composite materials are used in the field of another body attachment parts.

In the Mercedes strategy, the design of the Interior plays a more important role in the future as so far. Steffen Koehl: “because the car is understood today more and more as a living space, the design of the Interior must deal the mobility needs in the future.”
