Mercedes confirms 9 new cars for India in 2024

Mercedes-Benz India has confirmed its plans to bring 9 new cars to the Indian market this year, which includes at least two new AMG models and an expansion of its EV portfolio. Earlier the iconic German carmaker also made announcements related to its stunning sales performance and expansion plans in India.

The AMGs that we will launch here are the Mercedes AMG S 63 e-performance and the C 63 S e-performance. Both of them were first revealed in late 2022 and are based on their respective new-gen counterparts, also sporting technology in their hybrid systems, which is claimed to be taken from Formula 1 (Considering Mercedes is one of the best teams in F1 right now, the tech has to be one of the best in the market). Due to this, the C 63 e-performance has an overall output of 680 hp and 1,020 Nm of Torque, coming from a 476 hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 204 hp electric motor, powered by a 6.1 kWh battery.

On the other hand, the S 63 e-performance sports an updated twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine along with a rear-axle-mounted asynchronous electric motor which is powered by a 13.1 kWh lithium-ion battery. In case you think the C 63 is powerful enough, the S 63 takes it up a notch with a total output of 802 hp and 1,430 Nm of Torque. It’s basically more powerful than a Formula 2 car while still being road-legal.

Both the models get the typical AMG-specific design elements both inside and out including Aerodynamics and an infotainment system. Both of these cars also come with a 9-speed automatic and 4Matic+ AWD system. Apart from these two, Mercedes will also introduce two more models in that segment before June 2024.

Santosh Iyer, MD and CEO of Mercedes-Benz India also stated at a media conference that the launch of the all-new E-Class will take place before 2024 ends. He further adds that since the new E-class will arrive only by the end of this year, the lineup might lack an E-class for some time.

Furthermore, the brand also plans to debut 3 new EVs during the year, one of which is expected to be the Maybach EQS.
