"Nothing represents our long-term commitment to China more tangibly than the production of vehicles in China itself: The localized production of further Mercedes-Benz models is an important element of our growth strategy for the Chinese market," said Ulrich Walker, Chairman & CEO of Daimler Northeast Asia.
These vehicles are destined for the Chinese and local market, as the German automaker has stated it plans to locally produce two thirds off all the cars sold in China by 2015.
Mercedes sold 168,940 vehicles overall in China (including Hong Kong) from January through November 2011, but it has even bigger ambitions for the future - 300,000 units per year by 2015.
