The E-segment is the second largest of the European segments for passenger cars, and is described as "executive cars".[1][2] It is equivalent to the full-size car category used in the United States and the executive car category used in Europe.[3]

E-Segment is a niche in Europe (3% penetration in 2017).[citation needed]

Most E-segment cars are sedans/saloons, however several models are also produced in a wagon/estate body style.

Current models[edit]

The three highest selling E-segment cars in Europe are the Mercedes-Benz E-class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6.[4] The three highest selling cars in the equivalent category in the United States (large cars) are the Dodge Charger, Chevrolet Impala and Chrysler 300.[5]
