A few weeks after production began in the Rastatt plant the Mercedes-Benz Plant in Kecskemét also launched the production of the new A-Class. This is the first factory outside Germany where the production of this innovative vehicle was started. With the new model in addition to the CLA and CLA Shooting Brake the plant in Hungary proudly continues to have a very attractive production profile.
For the production of the new compact car generation a new body shop equipped with state-of-the-art technology on a ground surface of 99,000 square meter was built on the site of the plant in Kecskemét. With the implementation several new developments were carried out in the existing plant as well, for instance, new robots were put in operation in the paint shop. Thanks to the new investments the production of the new generation of compact cars will be even more flexible and effective. The Hungarian plant is the second worldwide production facility where the new compact model is manufactured, which contributes to a strengthening role of Kecskemét within the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars.
