September 19, 2018 - Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, Deputy Prime Minister of the federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg Thomas Strobl and numerous guests from politics, business and administration gained an insight into the future of mobility at Daimler during the opening ceremony in Immendingen. The company has invested more than €200 million in the Test and Technology Center in the municipality northwest of Lake Constance. Across an area of 520 hectares, a new Daimler research location has been constructed since the groundbreaking act in spring 2015.
As we open the Immendingen Test and Technology Center of Daimler today, we open a door to the future. Here, Daimler bundles competences with the goal of developing and testing new technologies and vehicles in just one location. By building a state-of-the-art technology center, Immendingen has gained a completely new economic perspective and is thus an excellent example of a successful structural change.
CASE – further development of the four future areas
Approximately 300 jobs will be created at Daimler in Immendingen. 170 employees are already developing and testing on more than 30 different test tracks, on which various driving conditions can be simulated. A particular focus is placed on the four strategic future areas of connectivity (connected), autonomous driving (autonomous), flexible use (shared) and electric drive (electric). Daimler has summarized these under the term “CASE.”
