Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) is set to introduce two more W213 E-Class variants this year – the E 350 e plug-in hybrid that was announced in April still hasn’t been officially priced, but a market debut is said to be expected soon.

The other E-Class model is the E 63 4Matic+. Speaking at the sidelines of the C238 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe launch earlier today, Mark Raine, MBM’s vice-president of sales and marketing, intimated that the 563 hp and 750 Nm sports sedan will make its premiere here during a “special occasion,” and we’re surmising that it’ll be sometime in September, in conjunction with the 2017 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia GP.

Raine also reaffirmed that the facelifted W222 S-Class will only be arriving in Malaysia in 2018, and gave a more concrete timeline of the car making its way here “towards the middle of the year.”

Like with the current pre-facelift, it’s expected that the refreshed flagship will be sold here in its eventual plug-in hybrid form, though how that will shape up will depend very much on whether the hybrid incentives in place until the end of the year are extended, with no resolution yet on this front.

Raine said that the company remains on track for another record year in 2017, with the company expecting to achieve its 12,000 unit target for 2018 (it shifted 11,779 vehicles in 2016). The model introduction count for 2017 is also set to surpass that of 2016, when 17 models were launched – 19 was the number touted at the company’s recent event where its 1H performance results were announced.
