Mercedes Benz officials have hinted that the Autonomous Technology may soon be seen in the production vehicle of New E-Class Sedan which is expected in 2016. The concept of the new E-Class will be shown at Frankfurt in September this year.
The technology will probably feature an evolution of the Highway Pilot system demonstrated last year in the Future Truck 2025 concept. This means the next E-Class will be able to drive itself up to a certain speed (85 km/h in the truck’s case) on highways and should brake, change lanes and even perform overtakes on its own. Moreover, the W213 generation should also autonomously park itself without the necessity of having a driver behind the wheel.
