The fourth generation of the C-Class will be manufactured for the first time by four plant on four different continents, with all sites to already begin production in less than six months from now.

“The new C-Class is setting new standards in the premium mid-range segment in a number of aspects – from design and perceived quality, driver assistance systems to lightweight construction. Just as important: We are also raising the bar in terms of production. Within just six months we will have ramped up production in four C-Class plants on four continents. With this, we are leading the way - a further milestone in our Mercedes-Benz 2020 growth strategy.” said Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars.

In the next few months, the C-Class will also roll off the production line in East London (South Africa), Beijing (China) and Tuscaloosa (USA), with Mercedes-Benz investing no less than two billion Euros in all the production facilities for the model.
