Mercedes: towards the disappearance of station wagons in 2030

The future of Mercedes station wagons is threatened: this silhouette, previously in great demand by European customers, is about to disappear in favor of SUVs.

Mercedes has had station wagons in its range for more than 40 years: a story that began in the 1970s with the Type 123, whose station wagon is called “T”. For many years, this silhouette was preferred by European customers, but since the advent of SUVs, station wagons are losing significant market share, as well as family minivans.

According to our German colleagues fromautomobile week, the Stuttgart manufacturer should remove station wagons from its catalog by 2030. The first to bow out is expected to be the CLA Shooting Brake, while the sedan version of the CLA would still remain in the lineup.

Mercedes: a neglected silhouette for SUVs

The recently refreshed Mercedes C-Class still has a station wagon version in its range, but this should be discontinued at the end of this generation’s career. The same will be true for the Mercedes E-Class, which will abandon the break silhouette by 2030.

A few months ago, one of the spokespersons for the star brand had already hinted that the future of station wagons was uncertain at Mercedes. The other niches, such as coupés and convertibles, are also under threat, but new and unprecedented silhouettes should appear in the future Mercedes range, with electric platforms offering more flexibility in terms of model design, as evidenced by the recent concept car EQXX.
