Commenting on the company's festive performance, Martin Schwenk, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, "This year's festive season has contributed actively to the recovery in sales which we have been witnessing since Q3. The Dhanteras demand this year has been at similar levels to that of last year, with over 300 cars delivered. This is a very encouraging development for us, as this achievement becomes even more pronounced in the backdrop of the pandemic induced market challenges, that resulted in sales loss for a quarter and also resulting in the non-availability of some of the volume drivers."
