Mercedes-Benz said battery plants in Kamenz, Bruehl (Untertuerkheim) and Beijing (China) would produce batteries for new models on the MMA and MB.EA platforms.

Battery assembly at the Koelleda site, currently making conventional and hybridised engines, is also planned subject to “support from the Thuringian state government”.

“The state government has pledged corresponding support in a letter of intent, paving the way for the plant’s electric transformation process,” the automaker said in a statement.

Untertuerkheim, Sebes (Romania) and Beijing plants would produce electric drive units for new models on the MMA and MB.EA platforms from 2024.

As previously announced, Untertuerkheim would double capacity for electric drives to 1m units.

Existing plants in Hamburg and Untertuerkheim (Mettingen section) would remain the German lead plants for the assembly of electric axles and components and would supply body plants with future systems.
