Mercedes-Benz AG will launch four electric vehicles (EVs) in India in the next 8-12 months, said the company’s head of region overseas, Matthias Luehrs, on Thursday. Currently, four of the 20-plus models it sells in India are EVs.

Meanwhile, the German automotive corporation headquartered in Stuttgart right now has no plans to set up a car manufacturing facility in India as it has enough production capacity worldwide for the next five to eight years, he told reporters.

It currently operates one plant near Pune that assembles completely knocked-down (CKD) units. This plant can produce about 20,000 units per annum.
