Mercedes-Benz is to launch factory certified used cars in India to widen its customer base.

In15 years there, it has sold 30,000 cars so the potential for quality stock is good.

As in other markets, cars sold through the programme would have to meet global standards and would be sold through authorised dealers.

“Comprehensive evaluation and refurbishment criteria, scientific tools for audit and inspection as well as manufacturer-backed warranty go into the making of a certified proven exclusivity vehicle. The dream of owning a Mercedes-Benz thus becomes even more achievable,” said Wilfried Aulbur, MD and CEO of Mercedes-Benz India , told The Hindustan Times .


Over 15 years of its presence in India, Mercedes-Benz has sold around 30,000 cars thereby creating a significant potential for its pre-owned car sales.
