Mercedes út 1.

Hungary
Production
Mercedes-Benz B-Class, CLA
The Kecskemét and Rastatt plants together form a production network for the new generation of Mercedes-Benz compact cars. The network contributes substantially to the overall profitability of compact car production and makes it possible to flexibly and optimally manage capacity utilization at both plants.
The plant was opened in March 2012, less than four years after the site was selected in the summer of 2008. Production is carried out with state-of-the-art, environmentally compatible technology.
Since operations commenced, the facility has been manufacturing the B-Class, which also runs off the assembly line in Rastatt.
In January 2013, the plant started to produce the new, four-door CLA compact Coupé, which is the first model series to be manufactured exclusively in Kecskemét.
