Mercedes Benz India claims that the C125RLE will return High fuel efficiency with low emissions. The BlueTec Emission Cutting Technology developed by Mercedes Benz, is an amazing system to cut off emission. This system includes injection of aqueous urea into the exhaust gas stream. The urea solution then reacts with the nitrogen oxide produced by burning the diesel and converts it to nitrogen, thus cleaning up the exhaust gases. This technology, which was pioneered on Mercedes Benz commercial vehicles, is also provided in some of the Mercedes Benz Luxury cars.

But the quality always comes with a price. Mercedes Benz India has set a price tag of INR 72 Lakhs for the 2-Axle Variant and INR 90 Lakhs for the 3-Axle variant.

Wouldn’t you want a comfortable and pollution free commuting journey in these luxury busses?
