AMG will unveil its four-door sports car and the company has confirmed it will be joined by updated versions of the C43. The sedan and wagon variants should echo the standard model and have modified bumpers, revised lighting units and an upgraded interior with improved technology.
Mercedes‘ EQ sub-brand will also have a big presence at the show as the company will present its “first series-production model with battery-electric drive.” The automaker declined to elaborate but this seems to suggest they will unveil the all-new EQ C. The model was previewed by the EQ concept and is expected to have two electric motors as well as a range of up to 310 miles (500 km) on a single charge.
The EQ C won’t be the only electrified model in Switzerland as Mercedes will use the show to unveil an assortment of plug-in hybrids with the OM 654 diesel engine. There’s no word on which models will receive the plug-in hybrid tech but the facelifted C-Class is a prime candidate.
Smart will also use the show to introduce the electric Nightsky edition, a new onboard charger and an app that will allow owners to “check the current status of their vehicle at any time via smartphone or watch.”
Getting back to conventional powertrains, Mercedes will stage the world premiere of the six-cylinder X-Class in Geneva. The model was announced last year and will have a V6 engine that produces 258 PS (190 kW) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque. It will be paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel drive system.
Last but not least, there will be Exclusive Editions of the S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet.
