The Mercedes-Benz Bremen Plant is celebrating a special anniversary: Mercedes-Benz among electric vehicles EQC is the nine millionth vehicle made in Bremen to roll off the assembly line. The EQC is one of ten models that are successfully produced at the site. Within the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Bremen is the centre of competence for the worldwide production of the C-Class, which has been Mercedes-Benz’s highest-volume model for more than ten years. Bremen is also responsible for the global production of the GLC as well as of the all-electric EQC. With a flexible production of vehicles with different powertrain variants, the Bremen site contributes to the efficiency and productivity of the entire production network.

The Mercedes-Benz Bremen Plant looks back on a history of over 40 years. The production of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars in Bremen started in February 1978 with the Estate model of the 123 model series. Since then, the plant has already successfully mastered more than 25 vehicle start-ups and pursues the long tradition of automotive construction in the Hanseatic City. To this day, the Bremen team is distinguished by its great experience with start-ups and the flexible integration of new models.

The EQC was the first all-electric vehicle to be integrated into ongoing production in 2019. It is produced there on the same line as the C-Class Saloon and Estate as well as the GLC and GLC Coupé. This is possible because Mercedes-Benz Cars invested in high-tech equipment with pioneering Industry 4.0 solutions in the entire production network at an early stage.

Ten models are currently produced at the location: C-Class Saloon, Estate, Coupé and Cabriolet; E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet; the SUV GLC, GLC Coupé as well as the SL Roadster and the EQC. More than 360,000 vehicles were produced in Bremen in 2019. As the centre of competence for the C-Class, the Mercedes-Benz Bremen Plant oversees the worldwide production of Mercedes-Benz’s highest-volume model series at the company’s overseas plants. Also the production of the GLC is controlled from Bremen as the main production location. Vehicles “Made in Bremen” cover the whole range of intelligent powertrains – from traditional combustion engines and plug-in hybrids to electric vehicles.
