Mercedes-Benz is constantly expanding its EQ Power model range with Plug-in Hybrid drive. The production of two hybrid models of the company's compact car family, the CLA 250 e Coupé and the CLA 250 e Shooting Brake, will take place also exclusively in Kecskemét. The first car is awaited by a Hungarian owner. The Mojave silver metallic CLA 250 e Coupé was driven off the production line in Kecskemét by dr. László Palkovics Minister for Innovation and Technology.
Series production of new models began three times in the previous year at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét: the new CLA Coupé was followed first by the new CLA Shooting Brake and then in the autumn by the Mercedes-AMG Performance versions. Despite the pandemic, the production is going successful this year, too. Production at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét has started gradually since 28 April. The flexible ramp-up of production allows the adaption to the current situation, while keeping the health of employees and partners is still of upmost importance for the company.
