Mercedes CLA Coming to China, Long Wheelbase Version Planned
But the CLAs will be made in Europe and imported into China, at least for the time. However, Beijing-Benz, a Daimler joint venture in the country, will star local production of a stretched version some time in 2014, Car News China reports.
