Double milestone in Mercedes-Benz history

The debut today of the new GLK at Auto China in Beijing represents a double milestone in Mercedes-Benz history. The Stuttgart premium auto maker’s compact SUV is also the first Mercedes to celebrate its world premiere in China. “It’s a testimony to this important and fast-growing market that we are presenting our most significant new model of 2008 in China,” said Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “After last year’s success, which saw Mercedes-Benz China achieve a volume increase of 53 percent, the new GLK will inject additional momentum here and in other markets,” continued Zetsche.

At Auto China, the first public appearance of the GLK - which is equally at home both on and off-road - was very much in keeping with its character. The driving dynamics of the compact all-rounder is symbolized by the athletic performance of free running protagonist Sebastian Foucan and his team. Foucan is the founder of the cult sporting discipline and gained global recognition with his spectacular stunts in the latest James Bond movie (Casino Royale).
