Mercedes-Benz is not just a name, but it is name to reckon with in the automobile industry. Founded in the 1880s, the company has stood the test of time and till date has a formidable market presence. Among the innumerable cars coming out of its inventory the one that has left a major imprint world-over is the Mercedes E-class. One of the most preferred cars of the world and also of India, the E-class is a range of executive size cars incorporating various engines and body configurations. Going by Mercedes standards, it falls under the medium priced bracket of luxury cars the company makes. So, whatï¿½s it about the ï¿½Eï¿½? Well, the E was originally mentioned on the engine to denote ï¿½Einspritzmotorï¿½, which means ï¿½fuel injectionï¿½ engine in German. However, it was much later, when all Mercedes cars used fuel injection that the company felt it was not necessary to add the letter as a distinguishing feature. The E-Class by then had developed into a brand by itself. Now, under the E-class belt is yet another coupe.
