Maybach S600 Brought in India for Homologation

Recently, the luxury car maker Mercedes Benz has brought Maybach S600 in India for the purpose of homologation. This is indicating towards the possibility of the saloon to get launched in the country in near future. Back in 2006, Maybach was introduced in India for the first time as a separate entity from Mercedes with its 'Palace on Wheels' range of cars. Later in 2011, it came with Maybach 62 and Maybach 57 in India. However, in contrast to the expectations, these models could not succeed and hence, this time this brand will be re-introduced as a sub-brand by Mercedes.
