Mr. Debashis Mitra, Director Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India explains: “We are proud that the first 100 units of New M Class (Edition 1) costing over Rs 68 lakhs were sold within few days of the launch! We have sold 175 units of M-Class in the first month proving that our strategy to offer products loaded with features is well accepted by our customers & they are willing to pay a price for the same.
