Mercedes-Benz India Has No Plans To Launch The EQS Or Any Other EV This Year

When asked about the launch timeline for the EQS, Santosh Iyer, VP – Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India told car and bike that the company has no plans to launch the EQS or any other EV at least for next one year.

Despite the challenges caused by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mercedes-Benz India has been among the select few carmakers that have stayed on course with regards to product launches. The Stuttgart-based luxury carmaker has confirmed that it will launch 15 new models in India this year, however, that will not include any electric vehicles. When asked about the launch timeline for the EQS, during the post-launch interaction for the Maybach GLS 600, Santosh Iyer, VP – Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India confirmed that the company has no plans to launch the EQS or any other EV at least for next one year.

Iyer pointed out that a lot of these electric vehicles introduced globally are high on demand worldwide, and they will make it other markets gradually. Assuring that India is a priority market for the brand, he said that there is no point in launching a product and not being able to cater to the demand. Right now, it’s even struggling with the demand for the EQC. So, before bringing a high-value product like the EQS electric sedan, the carmaker wants to get some volumes and certain clarity.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS, which debuted in April 2021, is listed on the company’s India website
