Mercedes-Benz C-Class Production Moving To Alabama

December 2, 2009

Here at TCC, we've seen some interesting production news over the past few months -- for example, Ford intends to make the U.S. its export base, and Honda will export the American-made 2010 Civic . (Honda might also move Fit production stateside.) Now, Daimler has announced plans to beef up its American manufacturing activities by shifting some Mercedes-Benz C-Class production from Germany to a facility in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where R-, M-, and GL-Class vehicles are already made. The move is slated for 2014 and aims "to take advantage of a growing market, lower production costs and to avoid currency fluctuations". We suppose that's what they'd call the silver lining of the weak dollar cloud. [DetNews]
