Mercedes-Benz celebrates 25 years production in India
As the country’s largest luxury car manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz looks back on a 25 year long history in India with a local assembly site and its local entity Mercedes-Benz India.
In 1994, Mercedes-Benz Cars started assembling cars locally. Back then, the production site was located in the Tata Motors (Telco) premises. In 2009, Mercedes-Benz India inaugurated a new manufacturing plant spread over 100 acres in Chakan, Pune.
The plant, where Mercedes-Benz Cars "Made in India" are assembled today, is also celebrating its ten year anniversary in 2019. The local assembly in Pune sets assembly standards in flexibility: nine different models are built under one roof. The Mercedes-Benz portfolio manufactured in Pune includes: the sedan of the C-Class, E-Class, S-Class and CLA Coupé as well as Maybach S-Class and the SUVs GLA, GLC, GLE and GLS.
The plant is equipped with Virtual Reality technology and other state-of-the-art digital manufacturing technologies which will be roll-out to other assembly plants worldwide.
