Mercedes-Benz confirms C Class Coupe in 2011 |

While outlining its plans for the Bremen plant, Mercedes-Benz has officially confirmed that a C Class Coupe model will join the estate and sedan lineup.

As you may remember, there were some intense rumors a few months ago about a presumed coupe model based on the current C Class sedan, which would decrease in size in order to rival the BMW 1 Series. Now, it seems that such a car has been confirmed, and will be arriving with the facelift of the current C Class, at the beginning of 2011.

The new car will replace the CLC hatchback, which disappointed in sales, and will fill in the gap left by the CLK model, which saw its production end in early 2010. Don’t go thinking it will be a completely unique model, as its relatively short life, of at most four years, means Mercedes won’t invest that much money. Also, because of this, a convertible edition, like what happened with the E Class Coupe that spawned the E Class Cabriolet, won’t appear.

No other details are known as of yet, but be sure that Mercedes-Benz is preparing a sneak peek of the two-door model at one of the upcoming major European motor shows (our guess is Frankfurt).
