Mercedes To Show Their Highlights Online After Cancellation Of Geneva Motor ShowMercedes To Show Their Highlights Online After Cancellation Of Geneva Motor Show

Mercedes-Benz will demonstrate this year’s product highlights on their own online media platform, after the announcement that the Geneva International Motor Show has been cancelled.

The scheduled executive talk regarding the World Premiere of the new E-Class, was meant to be with Daimler board members Ola Kallenius, Britta Seeger and Markus Schafer. This has since been moved to broadcast from a studio in Stuttgart, Germany.

The digital Mercedes-Benz Press Conference will be broadcasted on Tuesday, March 3rd at 8:45am on Mercedes’ media platform ‘Mercedes me media’.

For Mercedes-Benz fans, nothing will be missed, despite the last minute motor show cancellation.

Beside the comprehensively updated and upgraded E-Class, the focus is on the continuous electrification of Mercedes-Benz models – featuring various new members of the compact car hybrid family as well as new engine variants with integrated starter generator (ISG) and 48-volt technology.

The Motorsports and Sustainability media talk with Lewis Hamilton will still go ahead.

As a further digital highlight, the all-star Motorsports and Sustainability media talk – also part of the original Geneva Motor Show programme – will be held at the studio and can also be seen on Mercedes me media.

The talk will feature Markus Schafer, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG, responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development, Procurement and Supplier Quality; Toto Wolff, Team Principal and CEO of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team; Lewis Hamilton, six-time Formula 1 world champion from Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One; and Nyck de Vries from the Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team, who will discuss sustainability in motorsports as well as the transfer of technology to series development.
