Mercedes allocated 25 units of the G 63 Grand Edition for the Indian market all of which were picked up within minutes of bookings opening.
Speaking to media at the India unveiling of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Concept, he said that all 25 units of the Rs 4 crore (ex-showroom) luxury SUV had sold out within 6 minutes. The SUV’s final price stands at over Rs 5 crore including registration and taxes.

The carmaker is seeing strong demand for its TEV range which posted a 22 per cent growth year-on-year.
Overall, Mercedes said that it had sold 12,768 units in the Indian market this calendar year as of end-September. This marked an 11 per cent uptick in sales as compared to 2022 putting the company on course towards possibly outdoing its sales performance in CY2022. The company reported sales of 15,822 units in the country last year.
Of the 12,768 units sold, Mercedes said that 25 per cent of sales came from its TEV models.
