Targeting what it calls as sustainable luxury in India, the company stated that the launch of EQ brand showcases the company's strategic initiative in the domain of EV to establish luxury electric motoring in India. "As the inventors of the automobile and pioneers of luxury mobility in India, we are launching the brand ‘EQ’ that will establish luxury electric motoring in India," said Martin Schwenk, MD and CEO, Mercedes Benz India. "The ‘EQ’ brand is a key pillar of our ‘Sustainable Luxury’ objective and is the first dedicated luxury electric brand in India.
