Mercedes-Benz S-Class launched at a more affordable 1.57 crore

  • Mercedes-Benz S-Class will now be locally assembled which means its price point sits well below the S-Class Launch Edition which had been driven in in June.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class will now also be locally assembled and the German automaker on Thursday drove in the flagship ‘Made-in-India’ sedan at a more affordable 1.57 crore (ex showroom). The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Launch Edition had been launched via the import route in June of this year at 2.17 crore.

At the time, just 150 units had been brought in but with local assembly, the company expects a wider demand base.

Mercedes-Benz has launched 11 new products in India this calendar year. The 2021 S-Class has, quite obviously, had a place of prominence. The latest S-Class has been referred to by many across the world as the best car anywhere at present. While the jury is still out on that, the 2021 S-Class does get a mile-long list of updates to its exterior styling, cabin comfort, features and drive capabilities.
