Mercedes-Benz S 500
Mercedes-Benz India grossly misjudged demand for the Mercedes S-class premiere edition, the fully equipped S500, which costs a stunning Rs. 1.58 crore (ex-showroom Delhi). The high price did not dissuade purchasers, who snapped up the first batch of 125 German automobiles. The business expects it will easily be able to fill over 300 orders for the S-class Launch Edition. The car was indeed an attraction sight at the 2014 Auto Expo.
