In a deal that must have left its rivals smarting, Mercedes Benz of India recently delivered 90 units of the new C-Class sedan to a single customer. This customer, Cars on Rent, now ups its fleet of Mercedes Benzes to 160. Servicing customers in Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore, the additional order reflects the scale of the Indian market for luxury brands like Mercedes.
Commenting on the purchase, Cars on Rent Managing Director Rajiv Vij says that, “The demand for luxurious personal mobility solutions is rapidly on the rise. We partner with various International and Domestic Airlines, Hotels and Financial Services companies to service their High Flying guests. The brand value of Mercedes-Benz is unparalleled; as such it was our natural choice. The C-Class vehicles that we have in our fleet currently have proved to be extremely reliable even after clocking mileages in the range of 180,000 km. The low maintenance and excellent service support that we’ve had from Mercedes-Benz made our choice obvious.We see this trend growing in the future and already have in place a team dedicated towards serving the needs of corporate customers.”
