Mr. Eberhard Kern, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “Mercedes-Benz India offers the ‘Top of Pyramid’ products for its discerning customers, creating more value to the total cost of ownership. The excise duty cut was of much relief to the automotive sector in general and luxury cars, in particular. However, the end of excise benefit left us with no option but to pass on the additional cost to our customers. Mercedes-Benz India is on a strong growth curve with a clear focus on maintaining a profitable and sustainable growth. We want to maintain our premium brand positioning in the market and sustain the strong foundation which we have created for the brand in India.”
