First Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet has rolled off the production line. The new drop-top, including the AMG versions, is produced at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen, Germany, the same facility where the entire C-Class family (Saloon, Estate and Coupe models) is assembled.
The first Cabriolet in the history of the C-Class model line will reach Mercedes showrooms this summer and can already be ordered by customers around the world.
Offering four-seats and a classic fabric top, the new Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet boasts strong virtues such as the fascinating design, the dynamic chassis with optional air suspension, 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and efficient engines.
The C-Class Cabriolet features an intelligent lightweight construction with a high proportion of aluminium. Lightweight components include the wings, bonnet and boot lid, lowering the weight of the vehicle and its CO2 emissions. Accordingly, a diverse range of innovative joining technologies is applied in the body shop.
“With the new C-Class Cabriolet, four models of one product family are being produced flexibly, efficiently and in top quality at the Bremen plant – a great reference for the site and the workforce,” Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain Management, has said.
With the introduction of the C-Class Cabriolet on its production lines, the Bremen plant sees its assembly portfolio increase to nine different Mercedes models. Among these, the C-Class Saloon, Estate, Coupe, the E-Class Coupe and the E-Class Cabriolet, plus the GLC SUV and the SLC and SL roadsters. In 2016, the plant receives another new model on top of that, the GLC Coupé, which takes the total number of vehicles made in Bremen to ten.
