Mercedes will import the G 350d into India and will be subject to the duties levied on the SUV. We expect the G 350d to be priced around Rs 1 crore (ex-showroom) India. While the G 350d will not be cheap by any measure, but the SUV would undercut the AMG G63, which starts at Rs 2.19 crore, ex-showroom. Mercedes G 350d when launched in India, will not have any direct rivals in performance rugged SUV segment.
