Merc to roll out new C-Class model

Luxury car manufacturer DaimlerChrysler�s Indian subsidiary Mercedes is all set to introduce the new C-Class in the domestic market by early 2008.
Recently at its unveiling, the new car attracted the attention of auto enthusiasts worldwide for its rather unorthodox design and style cues.
Sanjiv Sahajwala, director, sales and marketing, DaimlerChrysler India, said, �We are planning to launch the new C-Class, which is currently under production in the overseas market, in India by early next year. We would have to set up its basic equipment in our manufacturing units in the country in line with the new car. This will be done in the next 8-9 months.�
The company is planning to halt production of the current model by October this year.
DaimlerChrysler has not yet decided on the vehicle�s pricing, but experts said it might be priced on the lines of the outgoing model.
