"The start of production of the GLA in India marks the first time we are producing compact cars in our
global assembly network along with sedans and SUVs. We are thus entering the next stage with our market-specific assembly, allowing us to serve local demands in a flexible and efficient manner according to highest quality standards," said Markus Schafer, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain Management.
"Rolling out our first ever locally manufactured GLA and commencing production from India's largest installed luxury car production facility are two very significant accomplishments for Mercedes-Benz in India. These accomplishments are a result of our long-term vision for the Indian market and our relentless efforts towards creating a strong foundation for our business in India," said Eberhard Kern, MD & CEO Mercedes-Benz India.
