German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz has introduced its new S-Class that has been produced in India. The new car has been produced in the company's Chakan facility in Pune at price starting from 1.57 crore.

Earlier, the company had imported the S-Class sedan as a completely built unit (CBU). However, the pricing started at 2.17 crore due to the high import duty. With the introduction of the India-produced car, Mercedes has managed to reduce the prices substantially.  

The company claims that the S-Class has retailed more than 8, 250 units in India. Due to the response to the CBU launch edition of the S-class, Mercedes-Benz is offering Indian customers the locally manufactured version.

The new S-Class will be available in two variants -- S 350 d, which is priced at 1.57 crore and S 450 4MATIC priced at 1.62 crore. With the inclusion of the new S-Class, the company now produces 13 car models at its Chakan production facility.

“We are in particular overwhelmed with the tremendous response to the New Generation S-Class and to cater to the increased demand, we are now commencing the local production ahead of our planning. We are confident the locally made S-Class will continue to retain its high loyalty from our discerning customers in India," said Martin Schwenk, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India,
