Meanwhile, the company today launched Mercedes Benz C-class sedan diesel version in the Hyderabad market. He said the company also plans to add 15 new dealers to the existing network of 69 located in 38 cities.

"What we see is a double digit growth in India in terms of sales," he said when asked about the outlook. Sales grew by 13 percent to 10,201 units last year when the all India luxury car market grew by 3 to 4 percent, he added.

Speaking more on the occasion Kern said, “the appreciating dollar will have an impact on the cost structure. However, for Mercedes Benz the situation is 'under control'. Last year, luxury car market in India was at 32,000 units, up 1,000 units against the previous year.”
