Mercedes-Benz new S-Class ‘Pullman’ to compete with Phantom

Mercedes-Benz has officially announced the all new S-Class along with its various wheel-base variants. To top that, Daimler has now confirmed that they plan to introduce the ultra-luxury saloon based on the EWB (Extended Wheel Base) version of the S-Class to rival the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The Pullman will aim at occupying the throne at the top of the Mercedes-Benz realm, a position vacated by the company’s discontinued Maybach brand. As a result, Mercedes-Benz will introduce the Pullman with unique stylised touches which include a characteristic grille aimed at giving the Saloon a royal aura. 

All the variants of the four-door S-Class will available in the British market from October, followed by the CL-Class replacing S-Class coupe scheduled for 2014. Indian launch of the S-Class is expected to be towards the end of this year, but there is no information yet if we will see the CL-Class on Indian roads. 

The Pullman on the other hand would come to India, though with a hefty price tag. The European spec Pullman is expected to cost in excess of EU 200,000 (Rs 1.57 crore) and since the model will arrive in India as CBUs (Completely Built Units), the price will be at least two times, considering the current tax regime.
