“Fifty million vehicles produced is a significant milestone in the history of our company, and an exceptional achievement by the team”, said Mercedes’ Member of the Board of Management for Production and Supply Chain, Jorg Burzer. “I would like to thank the colleagues in the plants around the world for their work and commitment. Their expertise and passion in the production of our stars make the wishes of customers all over the world come true day after day.”

It comes locked and loaded with comforts like an active noise compensation system, seats with massage function for the calves, ambient lighting, gesture control, a lineup of high-grade materials available for the cabin.
