Mercedes Benz on Tuesday launched its much-awaited compact sedan CLA 45 AMG priced at Rs.68.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

CLA 45 AMG is the seventh car in the AMG series that the company will be selling in India.

“This compact performance sedan is the latest AMG in India and its immense potential excites us tremendously. The success of our new generation cars in India only gives us more reason to believe that the CLA 45 AMG will fascinate our young customer groups,” Mercedes-Benz India Managing Director & CEO Eberhard Kern told reporters here.

Globally, he said the AMG brand sold 32,000 units last year and the automotive major was expecting a double digit growth this year. Mr. Kern further said that in the next six months Mercedes Benz would launch the CLA Class performance sedan in India as well.

Earlier this year, the company had stated that it planned to launch about ten new products in India in 2014. It sold a total of 9,003 cars last year.
