Mercedes-Benz achieved a historic milestone in India by rolling-out the 100,000th Made-in-India car in the form of the all-new 2018 E-Class. The car was rolled-out from the assembly line of Mercedes-Benz’s world-class manufacturing facility at Chakan, by Roland Folger, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India and Piyush Arora, Executive Director, Operations, Mercedes-Benz India. This makes Mercedes-Benz the only luxury car manufacturer in India to achieve this milestone.

Speaking on this occasion, Roland Folger said, “The journey that began 24 years ago, as we pioneered the luxury car segment in the country, has only gotten more fruitful and today we remain the most preferred luxury brand in the country. The milestone of rolling-out 100,000 cars is also the result of the absolute dedication of all past and present employees of Mercedes-Benz India, who remain our best brand ambassadors.”
