According to sources, the upcoming new S-Class (W222) lineup will include five models in three different body styles.
The sedan version will be offered in three different lengths, due to the German car maker’s recent decision to axe its Maybach brand after a decade of disappointing sales following its resurrection in 2002. Also in the family will be a coupe and cabriolet model. The S-Class Coupe is likely to be officially revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, while the convertible will be revealed six month later in Frankfurt.
All three sedans are expected to adopt the same styling, except for the length of the rear doors and windows. Standard and long wheelbase models will be unveiled this September in Frankfurt, while the Pullman version could be revealed next year at the Beijing Motor Show. Set to replace the Maybach 57, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman will probably have a 5700mm length.
