250000 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG made in the Hungarian plant

A while ago, to be more precise, two and a half years ago, a new Mercedes-Benz plant was being opened in Hungary. The team was willing to give its best, and so, the employees started the production. This is the way tradition is being made, because the Kecskemét plant has just celebrated the production of the 250,000th vehicle. Performance and quality, these are two of the values which led to the great success. Thomas Geier, the Director of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Hungary, declared the team deserves all the credit for the celebration of this important number of made cars.

The lucky 250,000 is a polar silver CLA 45 AMG, a right-hand drive which will go to its master in Japan pretty soon. The efforts of the people who worked hard till now in the most recently opened Mercedes-Benz plant, are being rewarded. Thomas Geier said that each employee has made his own contribution to get to this point. The 250,000th vehicle actually represents an important milestone for the Kecskemét plant, which should be now even more determined to continue the production on a high scale. This plant is actually the only one in the world which assures a great percent of the company’s success by being the one which handles the production of the CLA four-door. The compact car family clients must know this is the only plant where the vehicle is made.

Another car which has been made by the Kecskemét plant’s team since March 2012, is the B-Class MPV. But it’s not the only plant which manufactures it, because the Rastatt plant, which is placed in Germany, handles this vehicle’s production too. Soon, the Hungary plant will start a new production, the CLA Shooting Brake’s, which is the Mercedes’ fifth compact model. It’s a 2015 version and the customers will be able to purchase it next year. The Hungary plant has started to work in three shifts since May 2014, as does the Rastatt plant. Mercedes-Benz is on a roll thanks to the compact vehicles which are sold in big numbers. For instance, till August, there were almost 290,000 customers who wanted to get an A-Class, B-Class, CLA-Class or GLA-Class and these are all compact models.
