On-screen, multiple Mercedes-Benz vehicles (factories are also near Karlsruhe) are once again in on the "Jurassic" action. Twenty-two years since the events of the original film, Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking "Jurassic Park" series, "Jurassic World". During their adventures in the jungles of "Jurassic World", the characters played by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard put their trust in the off-road capabilities of various Mercedes‑Benz vehicles – especially in the all-new GLE Coupé, which appears in its series-look for the first time.
Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers. Jurassic World will be released in 3D by Universal Pictures on June 12, 2015.
The partnership continues the relationship between "Universal" and "Mercedes-Benz", first forged in 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, when Mercedes introduced the M‑Class vehicle. “We are delighted to have been able to support this epic action-adventure with our vehicles,” said Dr. Jens Thiemer, Head of Marketing Communications for Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Our wide range of SUVs in particular fit perfectly with Jurassic World's various requirements, with the focus on our new trendsetter, the GLE Coupé.”The GLE 450 AMG Sport (mid-2015 market launch) is convincing on screen in dynamic off-road scenes set against the tropical backdrop of Jurassic World. One-and-a-half years before the vehicle's market launch, the security measures on set were huge. Even in remote filming locations on the Hawaiian Islands of Oahu and Kaua’i and on NASA terrain in New Orleans, the vehicle had to be shielded from eager photographers.
“Unveiling the new GLE Coupé in Jurassic World was a natural fit as we continue our relationship with Mercedes,” said producer Frank Marshall. “Audiences will find that the vehicles featured in the film lend themselves perfectly as the transportation of choice in the fully functioning international theme park we have created at Jurassic World.”

Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im "MCCIA Trade Tower", 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle mit den Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von "Let's Bridge IT" in Pune eröffnet.
Durch Erfolg und Ausbau der vielfältigen Aktivitäten - ob Infos rund um den Standort Karlsruhe, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten oder deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen - erfolgte im März 2018 ein Umzug in neue Räumlichkeiten, auch durch die Erweiterung um die Repräsentanz des Landes Baden-Württembergs in Maharashtra sowie das Marketingbüro der „Hochschul Föderation Südwest“.
