The production version of the concept has already started testing on public roads, but is still in the test mule stage. Tipped to be called an MLC, the new model will share a platform with the M-Class SUV and be produced alongside it at Mercedes’s plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
The MLC will be targeted primarily at customers in China and the U.S., and will most likely feature the same engine lineup as found in the M-Class. An AMG version complete with a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 should also be launched, along with a possible hybrid model.
Full details on the new concept will be revealed soon, so stay tuned for an update.
