Mercedes-Benz India commenced the local assembly of its flagship saloon, S-Class, today in India. The company has begun the assembly at its Chakan plant via CKD route which was available as a CBU until now. The dealers have started taking bookings for the locally assembled model whose deliveries will be made from the month of June. Thankfully, the change in its production location has brought down the price to Rs. 1.36 crores from Rs. 1.57 crores (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top-of-the-line S500 variant.

Eberhard Kern, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said “The S-Class has always set newer standards that have retained its accolade as “the best automobile in the world” with each generation. It truly embodies our DNA and aspiration of ‘the best or nothing’ in every aspect. No other car stands for Mercedes-Benz brand promise more than the S-Class and we are delighted to manufacture the new S-Class at our state-of-the art production facility in Chakan, Pune. Quality has all along been the strength of Mercedes-Benz India, and the new S 500 production in India is set to take this success story even further. This also reiterates our commitment to bring world class manufacturing facilities in India to support our growth in the luxury automotive business”.

The S-Class has been one of the most sought-after premium saloons in the world. Power comes courtesy a 4.7-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine that produces 453 BHP and 71.3 Kgm torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed auto transmission that delivers power to its rear wheels and the S500 hits 100 kmph from standstill in just 4.8 seconds. The car is also loaded with class-leading gadgetry and impeccable safety standards.
