Daimler Moving Sedan Production to Alabama
The C-Class will be the first sedan produced at the Alabama plant. Daimler says that the U.S. market is expected to grow, and it is "essential to have production facilities of the C-Class close to the market. The sedan version of the series is already the best-selling Mercedes-Benz model in the U.S. market."
The C-Class line, which includes a sedan, coupe and wagon, is currently built in Sindelfingen and Bremen, Germany, as well as in South Africa and China. The company plans to maintain employment levels at its Sindelfingen plant, but European production of the C-Class will be moved to the Bremen plant. In return, Sindelfingen will get production of the SL, a sports coupe, starting in 2014.
