Merc to build Shooting Brake

2010-11-10 08:40

READY TO GO: Mercedes-Benz's stunning Shooting Brake concept will be built from 2012.

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed the expansion of its CLS range with the announcement that the CLS Shooting Brake will go into production.

Dr. Dieter Zetsche, head of Mercedes-Benz Cars announced this week that the CLS derivative will be built at the company’s Sindelfingen plant from 2012.

Currently the plant, which is the biggest Mercedes-Benz manufacturing plant in the world, produces the C-Class sedan, E-Class sedan and estate, S-Class, SLS AMG, and CLS and CL coupes. The plant also builds Maybach and armoured Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

The coupé-based Shooting Break concept received a rapturous welcome when it premiered at the Auto China show in April, 2010.

The show car’s proportions are clearly related to a coupé, with its long bonnet, narrow greenhouse and dramatically sloping roof.

The new model will share its production line with the CLS and E-Class sedan.
