The Made in India Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe is slated to be launched in India in November 2020

Commenting on this announcement, Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, "The decision to locally produce AMG in India underlines Mercedes-Benz's clear roadmap for the Indian market and our long-term commitment to our Indian customers. We want AMG to be more accessible to the potential customers and play a bigger role in our overall portfolio we offer in India. This decision is an important milestone towards strengthening our AMG ambitions in India further."

Now, India did have the AMG GLC 43 Coupe up until a couple of years ago, and the older model came with a 362 bhp 3-litre V6 which was tuned by AMG to develop 520 Nm of torque. However, when Mercedes introduced the facelifted version in 2019, we never got it, and it's possible that the delay was because the company was planning local production of the SUV. The older pre-facelift, BS4 model was priced in India at around ₹ 75 lakh (ex-showroom), and given the current GST rates, the updated BS6 version of the SUV is claimed to have come with a price tag close to ₹ 1 crore mark. However, the completely knocked down (CKD) version of the Coupe SUV is likely to be priced around ₹ 80 lakh (ex-showroom).
