“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.
