On December 8, 1982 Daimler-Benz unveiled a third series to the line up, the Type 190 and 190 E.  The new models were characterized by more compact measures, reduced weight and increased economy without making any compromises to handling performance, safety and reliability.  Energy consumption was minimized by using high-strength sheet steel and other weight-reducing materials as well as aerodynamic optimization.
