Mercedes-Benz launches locally produced GLA at Rs 31.31 lakh

Mercedes-Benz launches locally produced GLA at Rs 31.31 lakh

Mercedes-Benz India has launched the GLA at Rs 31.31 lakh, with the commencement of local production of the compact crossover at its facility in Chakan, Pune. With this step, the GLA has become the first ‘new generation car’ to be produced locally, along with the other sedans and SUVs in the Mercedes-Benz’s range.

Keeping in mind the high demand for diesel vehicles in India, Mercedes-Benz will only assemble two diesel variants of the GLA in India for now. The GLA 200 Sport petrol and the GLA 45 AMG variants will continue to be imported as a completely built unit (CBU). The diesel variants are powered by 2.2-litre four-cylinder oil burner units, which deliver 134bhp and 300Nm of torque to the front wheels, through a seven-speed automatic gearbox.  

Mercedes-Benz also announced that the installed capacity at the company’s facility in Chakan has now been bumped up to 20,000 units per annum, which makes it the largest luxury car production facility of its kind in India. With an investment of over Rs 1,000 crore, the facility’s operations have been benchmarked to roll out the highest quality products which meet the German manufacturer’s global standards. Considering the rate at which Mercedes-Benz is expanding its presence in India, we can safely expect the company to continue to increase the number of cars that are locally produced at this facility.

Prices of Mercedes-Benz GLA (ex-showroom, Pune):

GLA 200 CDI Style: Rs 31.31 lakh

GLA 200 CDI Sport: Rs 34.25 lakh
