Mercedes-Benz brought its luxury car to India in 1994.
Mercedes-Benz India opened its Indian headquarters and assembly plant at Chakan 24 February, 15 years after it initially started assembling cars at a nearby facility leased from Tata Motors at Pimpri, also near Pune.
It has invested Euro50 million euros (Rs 300 crore) on the 100-acre plant which manufactures 5,000 cars and 1,200 trucks and buses a year.
