Mercedes-Benz A-class rolls-off the production line at the Rastatt plant

In the light of the motto 'the pulse of a new generation', the first new Mercedes-Benz A-class rolled-off the production line at the Mercedes-Benz Rastatt plant. The A-class is the company's second new compact model, following the start of production of the
new B-class at Rastatt in September 2011 and at the new Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemet, Hungary at the end of March 2012.

"This start of production marks a further milestone in our Mercedes-Benz 2020 growth strategy. The A-class represents our offensive in the compact segment," said Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. "And there is more to come: The compact SUV will be the third model we will build here in Rastatt."

Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Manufacturing & Procurement Mercedes-Benz Cars & Mercedes-Benz Vans, said "We are on a roll in manufacturing as well: Hard on the heels of the new B-class, we are now producing the totally new A-class for our customers. Thanks to the joint architecture, we can flexibly produce all models of our new compacts on the same production line at the respective site."
