Mercedes-Benz is all set to excite at the 14th Edition of the much awaited ‘Auto Expo 2018’. The key highlight of Mercedes-Benz’s product offense will be based on three distinct product attributes: Luxury, Versatility and Future Mobility. Making its much-awaited India debut will be Mercedes-Maybach S 650 sedan. The Mercedes- Maybach S 650 will further accentuate the Maybach’s overwhelming demand in the Indian market. The forerunner of Mercedes-Benz's new product brand for electric mobility globally- EQ, the ‘Concept EQ’ will be showcased to clearly manifest Mercedes-Benz’s direction towards creating a sustainable ecosystem of services, technologies and innovations and also delineate its long-term strategy of introducing the ‘EQ’ brand of battery electric vehicles in India.

The all New E Class All Terrain will also be unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018. The New E-Class All Terrain is like an SUV with large wheels and 4MATIC all-wheel drive as a standard feature, making it a versatile vehicle. In addition, the All-Terrain compares favourably with other SUVs in terms of its aerodynamics, which is why it is in its element on the motorway, too. The All-Terrain also cuts a fine figure thanks to its SUV look with powerful flared wheel arches and SUV radiator grille. The most eye-catching feature of the striking front is the SUV-style two-fin grille with a star integrated in the centre. The front bumper and the paneling in underride guard-look, electroplated in silver-chrome, also contribute to the SUV appearance of the E-Class All-Terrain.

In the side view, the 19-inch light-alloy wheels gives the vehicle a confident look of a SUV, with more ground clearance and enhanced comfort on rough roads. The E-Class All-Terrain made its global debut at the Paris Motor Show in 2016 and will have its India debut, later in 2018, creating a niche segment for itself.

Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented; “Auto Expo remains the much-awaited event in the Indian Automotive Industry and we are glad to be associated with it. Mercedes-Benz’s participation in the 14th Auto Expo is a reiteration of our commitment to our customers, to the market, and also a manifestation of our support to the government’s vision of ‘Make in India’. Auto Expo gives us a distinct opportunity to showcase our exciting range of new products and technologies to our discerning customers and brand enthusiasts, whom we are committed to fascinate. In addition to an array of fascinating global products, we also will showcase some of the best products we make in this country, in Pune. The Mercedes-Benz pavilion will be a perfect embodiment of modern luxury, future technology and mobility, driving performance, innovative design and progressiveness, all of which are synonymous with our brand promise ‘Best or Nothing’. We are confident of leading the market as the No.1 luxury car maker in India and our Auto Expo 2018 display will firmly underline this fact.”

The Mercedes-Benz S 650 will debut at the motor show and will kick-off our product offensive towards sustained leadership in the Indian market for 2018.
