The photographs must be uploaded with a hashtag- #Aclasspulsate, for a valid entry. Interested participants can also log onto Mercedes-Benz India's corporate website-, to register themselves.

Speaking his mind on the upcoming A-Class range, Eberhard Kern, Managing Director (MD) and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mercedes-Benz India was quoted as saying, “The A-Class reflects the changing global trends of adapting to "Compact" luxury as witnessed in consumer goods categories like phones and electronics. We are confident that the consumers in India also are evolved and have similar outlook like their global peers and they would surely like the ‘New Mercedes-Benz design language’ as personified by the A-Class. The response to our digital campaign for the A-Class is extremely encouraging and only reinforces our belief.”
