The new Mercedes C-Class, a long-awaited model which will be most likely seen at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, has been caught without any camouflage during winter testing.
The first version of the new C-Class will be the sedan model which will go on sale in August next year. Mercedes says that the next-generation C-Class will adopt a quite different design philosophy, in trend with the newest CLA and S-Class models in the range.
A plug-in hybrid version is expected to debut in 2015, a model which will complete the standard lineup (sedan, coupe, convertible).
According to current details, the new Mercedes C-Class will benefit from an engine built in the States, at the Decherd plant in Tennessee, a facility where Daimler and Nissan will produce powerplants.
The Tuscaloosa facility in Alabama will receive a major investment in order to accommodate the production of the new model, a total of 100,000 units per year following to leave the gates.
