Who makes Mercedes Benz?
Vehicles under the Mercedes Benz brand are made by German auto manufacturer Daimler AG, which also owns such marques as Smart, Freightliner, Western Star, Setra, and Mitsubishi Fuso. It is world’s 13th-largest auto maker by sales.
What country makes Mercedes?
As a global marque, Mercedes Benz has production sites in more than 20 countries all around the world, including the US, Austria, Canada, Brazil, and Mexico. Most of the factories in other countries are organized so as to copy the production process at Mercedes Benz manufacturing plants in Germany
Where is Mercedes Benz made?
The company is still based in Stuttgart, Germany, and its main plant is located there. Most cars imported in the US are built within Germany, but it should be pointed out that many of the 204 chassis C class cars were exported from South Africa.
The Argentina plant was the first one to be built outside Mercedes Benz’s country of origin. This factory is working even now.
The list of production sites in Germany also includes Mercedes Benz manufacturing plants in Bremen and Rastatt. In addition to this, there are two more factories in Europe: Hambach, France and Kecskemét, Hungary.
Probably the newest of all Mercedes Benz production facilities is located in Iracemápolis, Brazil (opened in 2016).
Passenger car assembly locations
Here, we include the sites where ready parts kits are assembled. There are assembly locations in Bangkok (Thailand), Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam), as well as in Indonesia, Malaysia, and India.
The largest Daimler AG’s production plant was built in 1915. It focuses on making executive and luxury vehicles, including the CLS, CLS Shooting Brake, E-Class (both Saloon and Estate), S-Class (including Coupé), AMG GT, as well as S-Class. In addition to the plant itself, there is a Technology Centre, where Mercedes-Benz cars are designed. The plant is built on the site with the area of almost 3.000 square miles.
The Tuscaloosa factory in Alabama, the US, builds some of the most well-known models, including the M-Class, GL-Class, C-Class, and R-Class. It’s important to take into consideration that this is the place where the cars are assembled and painted, while the parts themselves often come from other factories (in many cases, from other countries). By the way, it is possible to visit the Tuscaloosa factory, even if you aren’t in any way connected with the Mercedes Benz company. One just needs to stick to the scheduled hours, during which factory tours are available for tourists.
