Mercedes-Benz India's newly launch S-Class will now be manufactured locally. The company has decided to locally manufacture the Mercedes-Benz S 500 at its Chakan plant in Pune. The Mercedes S 500 was launched with a price tag of Rs. 1.58 crore, ex-showroom, New Delhi.

The company saw an overwhelming demand of the S 500, therefore, it has decided to take orders for 300 Launch Edition S-Class and will manufacture locally in Pune instead of importing it as a CBU (Completely Built Unit).

Earlier, it was decided to locally assemble the S 350 diesel and will sell the S 500 as a CBU, but later, due to higher demand the company changed its plan.

However, the S 500 will be available as both CBU as well as locally produced. The CBU S 500 Launch Edition will be priced higher and will be the higher trim, while the locally produced will be a lower specs and will cost less.

Apart from this, the S 350 will be on sale in June 2014 which will be the base version of the S -Class range.

The Launch Edition S 500 comes only in two color options - white and black.
