Mercedes-Benz is producing the C-Class with maximum flexibility, efficiency and digital networking.
The Saloon and Estate models of the new C-Class are starting to leave the production line at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen. The bestselling Mercedes-Benz model series over the past decade will start production in Bremen, the lead plant in the global C-Class production network. This will shortly be followed by start-ups at international locations in Beijing, China and East London, South Africa.
Hybrid models will follow in quick succession – as part of the “Electric first” strategy equipped with battery systems supplied from the
Mercedes-Benz battery plant in Jawor, Poland.
Local production in China for the Chinese market is a decisive success factor for Mercedes-Benz. China has been the largest sales market for the C-Class Saloon since 2016. The plant in Beijing produces the long-wheelbase version of the C-Class for the Chinese market.
In East London, right and left-hand drive Saloon models are built for worldwide export.
Production follows the latest production methods and processes including a new body shop system, improved flexibility, efficiency and sustainability. Thanks to innovative technologies, the paintshop at the plant in East London reduces energy consumption per vehicle by 25 percent.
