The first model to be made in India is the AMG GLC 43 Coupe which will be followed by others, however, for now the company has not disclosed the exact details of the same. Thanks to local assembly of the model the company says that customers will have a price benefit and it estimates the ex-showroom cost of the updated GLC 43 Coupe, will be around Rs 80 lakh. For reference, the pre facelifted GLC 43 Coupe was launched in 2017 at an ex-showroom price of Rs 74.8 lakh.
