Mercedes has a separate entity for R&D activities in India, operating under the name - Mercedes-Benz Research and Development India (MBRDI), headquartered in Whitefield Palms, Bangalore. The already existing facility was the largest R&D facility for Mercedes outside Germany.

The newly dedicated R&D facility is called the Embassy Crest and is close to the Whitefield Palms facility. The new R&D facility is spread across an area of 266,000 sq ft with a capacity of over 2,400 people. MBRDI was established in 1996, and looks after the activities like Daimler’s research, IT and product development.

With currently over 2,000 talented engineers and close to 200 patents filed for innovation in automotive development - MBRDI is a success story,” said Thomas Merker, acting Chairman, MBRDI.
