Orders for the same have been taken by the dealers. The S300L features a 3L V6 petrol engine with a 7-speed automatic transmission. The S300L now becomes the entry level car of the segment and with reduced price, the German car maker expects that there will be a surge in demand. Notably, the car is being produced at the Chakan facility from a semi-knocked down state. Compared to the higher variants, Mercedes has replaced the engine with a 3L motor in order to keep the price down. The S Class car by Mercedes Benz caters to the ultra luxury segment in India and is the best selling car in the segment. Thus introducing a low priced model will throw Audi A8 L, BMW 7-Series, and Jaguar XF out of competition.
