Mercedes-Benz India to assemble its flagship EV in India

Mercedes-Benz India has big plans when it comes to 2022, particularly in the EV space. Although the arrival of the EQS – the S-Class’s EV equivalent – was part of the plan, the brand has also announced that it will locally assemble the car, in a bid to boost the local, make-in-India production capabilities. While the brand hasn’t disclosed just how significantly that would affect the pricing of the car, the first locally-assembled EQS is expected to arrive during the fourth quarter of the year.

Big-ticket luxury cars en route

Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will be launching 10 models across the Mercedes-Maybach, AMG and EQ sub-brands, but the spotlight, for the moment, falls on the premium end of the spectrum which includes the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class limousine, the EQS and the Mercedes-AMG GT-R Black Series.

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class serves as the brand’s internal combustion luxury flagship. Festooned with the “Mercedes-Maybach” emblem, it arrives on a long-wheelbase platform, Airmatic suspension with continuous adjustable damping, rear-axle steering and E-Active Body Control. The car comes hot on the heels of the GLS Maybach, which was sold out almost instantly upon its arrival in the country last year.
