The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a range o executive-size caurs manufactured bi Mercedes-Benz in various ingine an body configurations. The E initially stood for Einspritzmotor, (German for fuel injection); a new featur in volume production vehicles at the time that the E-Cless first appeared, wi the E as a suffix tae the ingine nomenclature (e.g. 230E) in the 1950s. It wisna until the launch o the facelifted W124 that the E wis uised as a prefix (i.e. E220) an the model referred tae offeecially as the E-Class (or E-Klasse). At this time aw Mercedes caurs uised fuel injection an the company felt it wisna necessar tae add this as a distinguishing featur.
