Mercedes E-Class Convertible Spied

Mercedes was expected to delay the launch of the E-class convertible by six months, but by the looks of this mostly completed version it appears near completion. If these spy photos are any indication then the drop-top E-Class might be ready in time for its originally scheduled debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this Fall, rather than at the Geneva Auto Show next March.

The reason for the delay as reported in Auto Motor und Sport to be a cost issue, related to both development and marketing.

As development seems to have pushed ahead, it is still possible that the marketing (and, therefore, the launch) of the car will wait until next Spring - perfect timing for a convertible.

The E-Class Convertible, which is based on the C-Class chassis, is expected to make use of a soft-top rather than a hard-top to help keep weight to a minimum.

There continues to be no word on the delay of the E-Class Estate.
