Mercedes-Benz is doing very well in India

Also, the waiting period for customers–after placing an order–seems to be much shorter than in other countries. :thinking:

Merc car sales in US = 275,000
Sales in India 15,000.
Indian pop is 3-4x US
10% increase in India isn’t many more cars

The strong increase in sales may be related to the exchange rate. People that can afford a Mercedes Benz might want to buy now rather than face a 10%+ increase in prices next year. The buy it now mentality is strong in an inflationary economy.

Mercedes seems to definitely be the San Jose area’s subcontinent-folks preference. Tesla a near number 2.
