The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has proved itself to be one of the best selling models worldwide in the upper range car market, after selling 1.5 million units.

Mercedes-Benz has stated that 1.5 million units of the current E-Class have been delivered to customers worldwide since the vehicle's launch onto the market six years ago.

Some 230,000 customers have decided to opt for the Estate version of the E-Class, while the bulk have found more delight in the Saloon.

Dr Klaus Maier, executive vice-president of sales and marketing at Mercedes-Benz Cars, said: "The current E-Class and its predecessor models have been the 'heart' of Mercedes-Benz for more than 60 years now.

"With its typical brand attributes that include safety, comfort, innovation, economy, and quality, the E-Class has delighted around 12 million customers worldwide across eight model generations."

Four in every ten E-Class buyers globally opt to purchase the vehicle with a diesel engine.

Emissions were significantly reduced in the E-Class in 2006 thanks to the introduction of BlueTEC diesel technology in the US, which was launched in 2007 across mainland Europe in the Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC.
