Manufacturers are taking the pricing to some insane levels. One Year before, with around 25 Lac more, one could have the iconic G-63.

Porsche has silently increased the prices of Cayenne range by around 10 Lac and most others too. Not sure, what sort of guys are earning so much (other than stock market)

Didn't expect this launch!

I think they should have have gone with the SUV body type rather than the coupe. Yes, the coupe looks good and is sporty, but it does compromise on the practicality, rear seat comfort and boot space. These are the reasons for one to pick an SUV over a sedan.

I have a smash hit TikTok or Instagram Reels idea -> show a pic of GLE AMG to non-enthusiast spouse/friend, tell them what it costs and record their reaction.

Whether and where customers are earning or not should not be the basis of pricing. Instead being fair to the customer is most important!
Makes you feel so cheated that you don't feel like buying one even if you can afford it.

Currently the luxury car market is going on raising pricing way ahead of any input, currency or tax increase justifications.

There seriously needs to be an intervention by a new player who comes in with honest and fair pricing. I have my hopes on Tesla, they hopefully will price aggressively and this would have a ripple effect on the entire luxury market.
Although their plans are only for the Model 3 & Y, I hope they bring the Model S & X to give the germans a wack.
Bring the Model S Plaid at 1.5 to 1.7cr and watch the Germans deep discount their RS,63S and Competition packs

Genesis was rumoured to enter our shores soon. If they don't go the Lexus way and price their cars well for our market, they might get popular like their sister brands, Kia and Hyundai. Tesla's future here might be dicey, as most of the autonomous tech here will not be available here nor do we have the massive supercharging infrastructure, and when it comes to quality control, the Interior is a far cry from anything luxury.
