Daimler has announced the very first 2016 Mercedes E Class customer car has rolled off the assembly line in Sindelfingen, Germany.

It was mid-December last year when Mercedes started production of the S Class Cabriolet in Sindelfingen and now the E Class is joining the manufacturing process. It’s billed as the “world’s most intelligent business saloon” and at the same time represents an “important step along the road to accident-free and autonomous driving.”

The E Class is Mercedes’ best-selling model with more than 13 million units (including estates) delivered and on this celebratory occasion the company gathered examples of all nine predecessors. The 170 V model considered as being the “original E Class” was at the Sindelfingen factory along with other cars from the succeeding generations.

The all-new E Class Sedan W213 will be joined in the months to come by the Estate (and possibly an All Terrain version) which will be assembled at the same facility. This is also the place where Mercedes puts together the CLS, CLS Shooting Brake, S Class (Sedan, Coupe, Cabriolet), Mercedes-Maybach, and the Mercedes-AMG GT. More than 25,000 people work here and about 200 cars are delivered on a daily basis at the customer center in Sindelfingen.
