The diamond merchant has gifted top-of-the-line, flagship Mercedes-Benz SUVs to three of his employees. Savji Dholakia gifted three black Mercedes-Benz GLS 350d SUVs to employees who completed 25 years with the company. All the three SUVs were handed over to the employees in a ceremony in Surat.

Savji Dholakia started showing up in the news after his car gifts to employees went viral. In the past, he has gifted around 500 Fiat Puntos, 1,260 cars from Maruti and Datsun and 1,200 units of Datsun redi-GO to his employees. This time around, he gave the flagship SUV of the brand to appreciate their long-term relationship with his company. The Mercedes-Benz GLS is an uber-luxurious car and the 350d variant gifted to the employees cost Rs. 1 crore on road price in Surat. The SUV is used by many celebrities, including actor Ranveer Singh.

The GLS is the SUV equivalent of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and offers a range of luxury features. It is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 258 Bhp and peak torque of 620 Nm. It gets an automatic 7-speed transmission. The GLS comes with LED headlamps with the Intelligent Light System (ILS) that add a luxurious look to the SUV. It also gets Nappa leather interiors, a panoramic sunroof, 3-zone climate control, rear seat entertainment systems and much more. When it comes to luxury, the Mercedes-Benz GLS sure takes one’s breath away.

Well, serving 25 years in the same company is not an easy task and sticking around for so long sure has its advantages. The expensive car gift by the diamond merchant will also motivate other employees to work for a long period with the company.
