Future Monceau Classics

On this page you will find an overview of all the models that Monceau Automobiles is considering for electric conversion on our roadmap. If you are interested in any of these models please contact us for the possibilities!

eG Cabrio | W461/463

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, often informally referred to as the G-Wagen (short for Geländewagen), is a four-wheel drive vehicle manufactured by Magna Steyr in Austria, and marketed under the Mercedes-Benz brand. Initially designed as a military off-road vehicle, the G-Wagen evolved to include more luxurious models over time. The G-Wagen is renowned for its distinctive boxy design and sturdy body-on-frame construction. Despite the introduction of the intended successor, the unibody SUV Mercedes-Benz GL-Class in 2006, the G-Class continues to be in production and holds a remarkable place in Daimler's history as one of the longest-produced vehicles, spanning well over 40 years. In 2018, Mercedes-Benz introduced a technically new second generation of the G-Class, making only minor design adjustments. The cabriolet would make a great electric SUV.

eSL Pagoda | W113

The Mercedes-Benz W 113, unveiled at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show, is a compact two-seat roadster that remained in production from 1963 to 1971. It took over the roles previously held by both the 300 SL (W198) and the 190 SL (W121 BII). This remarkable W113 SL project came to life through the collaboration of key figures at Mercedes-Benz, including the Technical Director Fritz Nallinger, Chief Engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut, and Head of Styling Friedrich Geiger. Leading the design team were Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi, the creators of its distinctive patented, slightly concave hardtop, which ultimately led to the car's charming "Pagoda" nickname. For Monceau Automobiles the Pagoda eSL will be next in line.


e190SL | W121 II

The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL stands as a remarkable two-door luxury roadster manufactured by Mercedes-Benz from May 1955 to February 1963. Internally known as the W121 (BII or B2), this vehicle made its debut as a prototype at the 1954 New York Auto Show and was optionally available with a removable hardtop. The 190 SL offered an enticing and more accessible alternative to the exclusive Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. It shared fundamental styling, engineering, attention to detail, and a fully independent suspension with its upscale counterpart. Both vehicles featured double wishbones in the front and swing axles in the rear. Diverging from the 300 SL's costly, purpose-built W198 tubular spaceframe, the 190 SL adopted the R121 structure, employing a modified unitary floorpan derived from the W121 base saloon. A perfect candidate for electrification.

eSEL | W108/109

The Mercedes-Benz W108 and W109 represent a pinnacle of luxury car manufacturing, gracing the roads from 1965 until 1972 (or 1973 in North America). These models marked an upgrade from the Mercedes-Benz W114/W115 and were designed to carry the torch of the iconic W111 and W112 fintail sedans. Notably, these cars achieved remarkable success in West Germany and various export markets, including North America and Southeast Asia. Over the span of seven years, more than 383 thousand units rolled off the production line. As for their body styles, the W108 and W109 exclusively came in the 4-door variant. To cater to those seeking 2-door options with a similar square design but devoid of prominent tailfins, Mercedes-Benz offered the W111 coupes and convertibles. Since both models are very comparible, the current Monceau electric drivetrain will fit into this platform.


eSE Ponton | W180

The Mercedes-Benz "Ponton" series comprises a collection of sedan/saloon car models created by Daimler-Benz. These models made their debut in 1953 and earned the affectionate nickname 'Ponton' (derived from the German word for "pontoon"). This moniker was inspired by the distinctive ponton styling that characterized these vehicles—a notable design trend that seamlessly blended the formerly separate elements of the hood, body, fenders, and running boards into a single, often flat-sided structure. It's worth mentioning that, at that time, Mercedes-Benz itself didn't officially use this nickname to refer to any of its cars. In July 1956, a convertible variant with two doors and four seats joined the lineup, and in October 1956, a coupe version was introduced as well. Nowadays the sports models are the most sought after and eligible for electrification by Monceau Automobiles.


e600 Grosser | W100

The Mercedes-Benz 600 (W100) represents a distinguished line of ultra-luxurious automobiles that graced the Daimler-Benz production line from 1963 to 1981. Paving the way for the modern Maybach marque, this opulent vehicle, known as the Grosser Mercedes ("Grand Mercedes"). It stood head and shoulders above the 300-series Mercedes-Benz W112 in terms of price, features, and prestige. Its limited competition included renowned British and American counterparts such as Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Lincoln Continental, Cadillac Series 75, and Imperial. The 600 became synonymous with ownership among celebrities and political leaders throughout the latter half of the 20th century. The 600 assumed the mantle from the Mercedes-Benz W189 limousine, affectionately known as the "Adenauer" after Konrad Adenauer, who utilized several of these vehicles during his tenure as the inaugural West German chancellor. Generally speaking, the short-wheelbase (SWB) models were designed for owner-driven operation, while the long-wheelbase (LWB) and limousine variants, often featuring a central divider with power windows, were intended for chauffeur-driven service. Will be a dream to drive as electric conversion.
