We will continue to create new benchmarks in modern luxury to drive sustainable growth for the ‘Three Pointed Star’ in India.
“Mercedes-Benz India witnessed a surging demand for the new S-Class, ML-Class and GL-Class, all of which are currently waitlisted, even after producing them locally. Additionally, our New Generation Cars portfolio comprising the A-Class and B-Class continues to witness significant demand as India embraces “compact luxury”. Our volume drivers continue to be the C-Class and the new E –Class as they continue to enjoy customer preference in the luxury sedan segment”. Mr. Kern further added.
Mercedes-Benz has been constantly launching new products and its aggressive product strategy will continue this year too in its 'Year of Excellence'. Mercedes will launch its GL63 AMG SUV in a few days time and then will launch new cars like the Mercedes CLA45 AMG.
