500,000th Mercedes-Benz passenger car rolls-off production line in Beijing

The 500,000th locally produced Mercedes-Benz passenger car, an all-new long-wheelbase C-class model, has rolled-off the production lines at Daimler's Sino-German production joint-venture Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd. (BBAC), marking yet another milestone
in Mercedes-Benz's increasing local footprint in China. About half of these vehicles have been manufactured just within the last two years, highlighting the rapid growth that the production site has recently experienced.

"Continuous investment in localization is one of our key growth drivers for Mercedes-Benz's future in China, and it is clear proof of our confidence in and dedication to this strategically important market," said Hubertus Troska, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Greater China. "Going forward, we are determined to pick up the pace even more as we just signed a one-billion euro agreement with our partner for the localisation of further compact car models. BBAC is undoubtedly on its path to become the largest Mercedes-Benz passenger car plant worldwide."
