“We are planning for further growth. With an attractive offering of models and higher flexibility in production, we managed to build more vehicles in the first half of the year than ever before. We are also very optimistic for the year as a whole”, said Andreas Renschler, Management Board Member of Daimler AG responsible for Manufacturing and Procurement, Mercedes-Benz Cars & Mercedes-Benz Vans – also known as the man with one of the longest job names in the world.
The previous production record was achieved for the whole of 2012, when more than 1.34 million vehicles wearing the three-pointed star were manufactured. The German company wants to build and sell over 1.4 million cars by the end of the current year, which will obviously translate into another all-time record.
