The product planning document detailing Mercedes-Benz’s new model introductions for 2017 was part of an internal presentation outlining the German manufacturer's first-half financial results for 2016. It also confirmed the launch of nine new Mercedes-Benz models and two new Smart models in 2017.

This is compared with 10 Mercedes-Benz and two Smart models were planned to be launched in 2016.

Among the new Mercedes models to be launched during the first half of 2017 are the new-generation E-Class Coupé, high-riding E-Class All-Terrain and facelifted GLA (referred to as the GLA Coupé in the product planning document). Also planned is the recently unveiled 577bhp GT R and the aforementioned GT C, which will sport a fabric hood similar to that of the SLS roadster.

These will be followed in the second half of 2017 by a facelifted version of the S-Class, new-generation E-Class Cabriolet and a facelifted version of the GT (erroneously referred to as the GT C Coupé in the internal presentation) as well as the new Mercedes pick-up truck.

The two Smart models – the all-electric Fortwo cabriolet EV and Forfour EV – are planned for launch during the first half of 2017, according to the official document.
