Mercedes Benz, the German luxury carmaker is gearing up to bring BS VI compliant vehicles to India, which are ‘Made in India’. According to a statement from the company, it will be rolling out BS VI vehicles on 19th January 2018 in Mumbai. With this, the company will become the first automobile company to introduce such vehicles in the country.
The Indian Government has already enforced the BS VI emission regulations in all the vehicles from 1st April 2020. The step taken by the government is in accordance with its vision to make India a cleaner and greener country in future. Currently, all the Mercedes Benz cars are compatible with BS IV fuels.
In 2016, Mercedes-Benz India was the first automaker to commit on being ready with BS VI vehicles. Keeping its word, it will be rolling out the BS VI compatible vehicles even two years before of the law enforcement, which sets it apart from other manufacturers in the country. This move empowers the government’s vision and being locally produced, it also underlines the call of ‘Make in India’.
Nitin Gadkari, the Minister of Road Transport & Highways along with the Director of ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) will unveil the first-ever BS VI vehicles for India on 19th January in Mumbai.
Recently, the company unveiled the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, which is most likely to make its way to India by the end of 2019.
