Made in India S-Class Launch on October 7th

Made in India S-Class Launch on October 7th

Mercedes-Benz India is all set to launch the CKD version of the 2021 S-Class. Mercedes-Benz India launched the CBU launch edition of the S-Class earlier this year and that was a huge success. The made in India S-Class will be a stripped-down incarnation of the global-spec model with some cut down of features.


Made in India S-Class Features

The 2021 S-Class is loaded to its gills with new-age tech and features. However, the CKD model could skip some features like rear-wheel steering, Burmester sound system, rear-seat entertainment and 4-Matic AWD system as standard. Features like the vertically-oriented 12.8-inch touchscreen, digital driver’s display, ambient lighting etc will be a part of standard fitment. Mercedes-Benz India has to cut corners to price it attractively, sources suggest a price drop of over 42 lakh as compared to the CBU model.

Talking about the powertrain options, the made in India S-Class will share its engine options with the CBU model. It will come powered with 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-6 petrol and diesel engine options. Both the engines will come mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox whereas 4-Matic AWD could be offered as an optional pack.

Mercedes-Benz India is going to launch the new S-Class on October 7th. Sources suggest that it will be around 42 lakh cheaper than the launch edition model. Local assembly helps to shed down heavy import duties that are otherwise imposed on the CBU models. The made in India S-Class is expected to be priced at Rs 1.75 crore ex-showroom and it will take on the likes of the BMW 7-series and Audi A8L.
