2013 Mercedes Benz GL Class SUV to be launched in India on 16 May

The German luxury car maker, which registered close to 7,500 units in last year, much lesser than Audi and BMW, is now gearing up for new launches in India to give a spurt to its sales in India. The carmaker would be launching GL Class SUV on 16th May 2013.

The GL-class is a sports utility vehicle (SUV) that has been built since 2006. A three-row, 7-seater passenger vehicle, it is slotted above the M-class (another SUV). The GL-class would be launched by German tennis legend Boris Becker – who also is the brand ambassador of Mercedes-Benz - in Delhi.

Mercedes produces the GL Class exclusively at the Alabama plant in the U.S, alongside the ML Class. Originally launched in 2006, the GL Class was designed to address SUV needs of the American market. In a very phased manner, MB launched the car throughout the world. The GL Class made its Indian debut on the eve of the 2010 Delhi Auto Expo and since the launch, numbers have steadily grown. The GL Class competes with heavyweights like the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5.

The company is also looking at increasing its outlets to about 64 from the present 57. Stay tuned for more information on launch date.
