The EQB, manufactured at the Kecskemét plant, will be the first purely electric vehicle manufactured in Hungary and produced in series production. The production of the electric compact SUV in Kecskemét is an important milestone in the life of the Hungarian site.
The first series-produced copy of the EQB is planned to roll off the Kecskemét production line in the last quarter of 2021. The first prototypes of the EQB are already being manufactured at the Kecskemét plant on a special, separate production line, the so-called “Pilot Line”, so that the processes of the subsequent series production can be precisely planned and designed in the most efficient way possible. Like the other electric models of Mercedes-Benz, the EQB will be manufactured on the same production line at the Kecskemét plant as the conventional and hybrid models.
As part of the ongoing transformations in the production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars for the production and digitization of electric cars, the realization of a total investment of more than EUR 100 million is planned at the Kecskemét plant.
