The Mercedes-Benz plant in East London is part of the C‑Class global production network whose lead plant is in Bremen. The network also encompasses the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa, USA, and the BBAC joint venture plant in Beijing, China.
The plant in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province produces C‑Class Sedans for right-hand and left-hand drive markets for export. Since the production launch of the current C‑Class in May 2014, the plant has been producing the fourth generation of the highest volume model series of Mercedes-Benz. Since the summer of 2016, the C‑Class Sedan has also been rolling off the production line in East London as a plug-in hybrid.
