One of the most talked-about concepts at April's Beijing auto show is headed to production, beginning in 2012.
The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake will be assembled at the automaker's plant in Sindelfingen, Germany. The vehicle is essentially a wagon version of the Coupe CLS, Mercedes' sporty four-door.
“In 2004 Mercedes-Benz established a new vehicle segment with the four-door Coupe CLS and created a design icon,” Dieter Zetsche, CEO of parent Daimler AG, said in a news release.
“The decision to build the CLS Shooting Brake underscores the leading role of Mercedes-Benz in regards to innovative passenger car concepts and design. And that is exactly what the customers expect from us,” he said.
