DaimlerChrysler unveils new E 270 CDI

May 19, 2004 16:05 IST

Continuing its strategy of introducing new cars into the Indian market, DiamlerChrysler India Ltd on Wednesday announced the launch of the E 270 CDI in the country.

The E 270 CDI emphasises the continuous evolution of the E-Class and it packs a phenomenal power punch of 425Nm at 1800-2300 rpm and power output of 127 kw. This is a substantial enhancement from the outgoing E220 CDI's rated engine torque of 315 Nm and power rating from 105 Kw, according to the officials of DiamlerChrysler.

The Mercedes-Benz E 270 CDI will be the trendsetter for top technology, design and driving enjoyment, they said.

Its ex-showroom price in Mumbai is 34.7 lakh (3.47 million) while in New Delhi it is 35.46 lakh (3.55 million).

"The E-Class points the way to the automotive future. The immense appeal of our E-class range in India can, to a large extent, be attributed to the superior aesthetics, performance and power that this vehicle delivers," said Hans-Michael Hubber, managing director and CEO of DaimlerChrysler India, while talking to reporters at its plant near Pune.

The new E-270 CDI will further boost the popularity of the E-Class range in India, he added.
