IO – Legendary German automobile company Mercedes-Benz released its latest model cars for the Indonesian market – and had them assembled locally.
“Today, we are pleased to introduce Mercedes-Benz’s latest two luxury sedans, the New E-Class and New S-Class. For years since their introduction to Indonesia, the two models have created their own loyal segment,” said Choi Duk Jun, President Director PT Mercedes-Benz Distribution Indonesia, during the opening of the Mercedes Benz Star Expo at Senayan City, Jakarta, on Wednesday, 3 November 2021.
“With their latest looks and technology, the New E-Class and New S-Class are again becoming the benchmark of their respective classes. We are also proud of the fact that they are both locally assembled locally in Indonesia by our supremely skilled and trained technicians at the Mercedes-Benz
factory in Wanaherang, Bogor. These luxury sedans follow up on our successful line-up, including our locally assembled Mercedes-AMG model since October,” Choi said. “With the introduction of the new E-Class and S-Class at the Star Expo, we continue our commitment to provide the Best
Customer Experience to our visitors, and to provide better safety, security, and comfort in our amazing products for our honored guests.”
When asked about the possibility of Mercedes investing in electric cars in Indonesia, Choi stated that it is too early to speak about. “However, we are defnitely launching electric cars to Indonesia,” he said. “There are still so many things Mercedes-Benz still need to study on – supply chains, manufacturing costs, logistical costs, technology to use, regulations, taxes and levies, and many others to consider.” (rp)
