Production
Engines, axles, transmissions, components, incl. upstream facilities: foundry and forge
The company’s main plant: Daimler has concentrated the development, production and shipment of engines, transmissions and axles for the Mercedes-Benz Cars division at the Untertürkheim location.
Also located in the main plant are the Daimler Group headquarters, parts of the Trucks division, the research and development unit, and a steeply banked curve for testing vehicles.
In 2012 the powertrain lineup was expanded by two new products: the efficient
4-cylinder gasoline engine and the innovative dual-clutch transmission for the new compact cars from Mercedes-Benz.
