He said the luxury car market might have de-grown by 15 per cent in 2019 as compared to 2018.

Schwenk also said that the purchase of BS IV emission compliant vehicles ahead of April 2020, when such vehicles would be marketed, is not expected to happen.

He said Mercedes-Benz India will stop rolling out of BS IV vehicles by the end of this year, and from January 2020 onwards the company will roll out BS VI cars.

According to him, early in 2019 the company took decisions on managing inventories, profitability of the dealers and other aspects of the business to manage the downturn.
