Mercedes-Benz ICEO takes auto after getting stuck in traffic

We found ourselves in a situation where you were going to the office or to an important event and suddenly there is a traffic jam on the road. What do you usually do in such a situation, we normally wait inside the car until the traffic jam clears or if the meeting is too big, you will get out and look for alternative ways to get to your destination . Martin Schwenk, CEO of Mercedes-Benz India found himself in such a situation and in order to reach his destination on time, he got out of his car and took an auto-rickshaw. What car do you ask? a Mercedes-Benz S-Class luxury sedan.

Martin Schwenk has shared an image of himself traveling in an auto rickshaw in Pune. Along with the photo, he wrote: “If your S-Class gets stuck in traffic on the wonderful roads of Pune, what do you do? Maybe get out of the car, start walking a few miles and then catch a rickshaw? Traffic jams are quite common in most metropolitan cities. Cities like Bengaluru and Mumbai and infamous for their traffic jams. As mentioned in the post, Martin had to get out of his ultra-luxurious sedan and into an ordinary man’s auto rickshaw to reach his destination on time.
