In 2006, Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd. (BBAC), a joint venture between Daimler and its Chinese partner BAIC, commenced local production of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars in Beijing. Production of the C-Class Sedan began in spring 2008. Since May 2010, BBAC has been manufacturing the current E-Class in a long version that is especially adapted to the needs of the Chinese market. In December 2011, the facility began producing a third model, the GLK. In September 2012, the cornerstone was laid for the future production of compact cars. In 2013 a new engine plant will begin to produce the engines for the Mercedes-Benz cars and vans that are manufactured in China. In addition, a new R&D center will focus on testing and adapting vehicles. It will also conduct R&D activities in cooperation with suppliers.
