It is being said that Mercedes-Benz India Limited could consider bringing the ML 250 CDI into the Indian car market. The recently launched M-Class is available in two variants in India. Price starts from Rs. 56.9 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom,Delhi) and is powered by a 3.0 Litre V6 Diesel engine. The limited edition M-Class AMG which Mercedes brought in 100 numbers is already sold out.
The ML 250 CDI is already in sale in Europe. Let’s point out the features as we discuss:
- 2.2 Litre Four Cylinder Common Rail Diesel Engine.
- 7G-Tronic Gearbox with 4MATIC Drive System.
- Maximum power of 204 PS and 500 Nm of torque.
- Best in class fuel efficiency of 17 kmpl.
- 25 Kgs lighter than the ML 350 CDI.
If the company brings the ML 250 CDI toIndia, it could be cheaper by at least Rs. 5 Lakhs or more than the existing ML 350 CDI. Mercedes might have a closer look at the pricing and consider omitting some features. If the company manages to keep the price under Rs. 50 Lakhs mark, it’s going to be a tough competition for the segment.
Though the company haven’t commented on this officially, we’ll keep posting as and when anything happens. So, stay tuned!
