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 the new engine plant started to produce the engines for the Mercedes-Benz cars and vans that are manufactured in China. Production for the long-wheelbase version of the new C-Class will begin in summer 2014. 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.
