Mercedes-Benz has reopened bookings for its two high-end SUVs – the AMG G63 off-roader and the GLS Maybach 600. The carmaker says India has received additional units of the G63 and GLS Maybach, and their waiting periods have also been reduced substantially. The bookings are initially open for existing Mercedes-Benz owners before it is offered to new customers.

Mercedes-AMG G63, Maybach GLS 600 waiting periods reduced

Early last year, we reported that the waiting period for high-end Mercedes cars and SUVs was up to two years, owing to their high demand globally. The G-Class SUV had the longest waiting period and Mercedes had said the off-roader was sold out for two years. Now, with the increased allocation, Mercedes says the waiting period for the AMG G-Class is a year and a half, compared to two-three years earlier.

We had reported about the waiting period for high-end Mercedes-Benz models in the May 2022 issue of Autocar India.

Mercedes-Benz says the waiting period for the GLS Maybach 600 has also been reduced significantly and currently stands at eight months for single-tone paint shades and up to 10 months for dual-tone paint shades. 

The AMG G63 and the GLS Maybach 600 are a part of what Mercedes-Benz calls the Top-End Vehicle (TEV) segment, and it was the fastest-growing segment within the carmaker’s portfolio in 2022, registering a 69 percent yearly growth.
