Here's what you can expect to see.
The 2020 Geneva International Motor Show will open its doors in less than two weeks and Mercedes-Benz will be there with some important reveals. Among the new vehicles being shown, the facelifted 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will have the most relevance for consumers. Mercedes has already previewed its updated mid-size sedan, which is set to arrive with revised styling, an updated interior, and new powertrain options including mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. Alongside the more mainstream versions of the E-Class, Mercedes will also show off the updated 2021 E63 AMG model.
Mercedes says its display will include both world and European premieres with two new AMG SUVs. One will almost certainly be the recently announced 2021 GLE 63 S Coupe but the other remains a mystery. We'd place our bets on it being the GLB 45 or GLA 45.
Also on display will be the Mercedes Vision AVTR Concept (pictured above), which was first shown at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show. Unlike most concept cars, the Vision AVTR does not preview a future production model and was actually inspired by the movie 'Avatar' by James Cameron. This will be the first time the AVTR, which stands for Advanced Vehicle Transformation, will be shown publicly in Europe. It is clearly far off from production but Mercedes says the concept features a new battery with graphene-based organic cell chemistry that is free of rare earths and metals.
For European customers, Mercedes will also be showing off an updated Marco Polo camper van (also known as the V-Class) with an updated MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system. The van is set to go on sale in spring 2020 but will probably not be offered in the United States, where we get the Metris and Sprinter vans. Geneva kicks off for media days on March 3, 2020 but Mercedes will hold a special preview for journalists the day before.
