Mercedes is reportedly planning to sell diesel coversalls for all its models, and it will be the first automaker to do so.
Mercedes-Benz’s boss, Dieter Zetsche, confirmed the news in an interview with Automotive News24.
“We have plans to introduce the diesel coverall in 2018, so we can focus on the performance and safety,” he said.
“That is why the diesel coversall is a priority for us.”
Zetschel said he expected to launch the coveralls on the back of a big event at the end of the year.
“In 2019, the diesel model is the priority, and we will unveil it at the event,” he explained.
“And then the 2019 model will also become the diesel version.”
The new coveralls will be available in three models: the Mercedes S-Class, the S-class Coupe, and the S63, the company said.
The S-CLASS coveralls were first unveiled in October 2016, and will be sold exclusively in the S550 and S63 variants.
The new models will be produced in Germany, and include an automatic transmission, leather seats, and an air filter.
The coupe coveralls are planned to launch at the beginning of 2019.
The first coupe S-series coveralls, the P85, will be launched in 2019.
